THE HOTDISC BRITISH & IRISH TOP 10
The Hotdisc chart is compiled from DJs and industry professionals’ ratings of songs currently being promoted on the Rush Released CD. They are not airplay charts, as airplay charts cannot work in Europe because there are no terrestrial country stations. The hundreds of country programmes on air which we service are likely to play a particular song only twice at most in a three month period, therefore rendering airplay charts insignificant in Europe. It works well in America where there are plenty of non-stop country stations but it does not work here. Any Airplay Chart you may see claiming to provide this service is bogus and Hotdisc does not condone these charts at all. They are misleading at best for the reasons stated.
The Hotdisc charts are put together weekly using ratings supplied by DJs who give scores to every song on the last three months’ editions of Rush Released. The scores are averaged out per week to give an accurate guide to the songs which are being championed by the industry. The aim is to showcase the songs which the industry professionals are flagging up as quality songs. This is a very useful exercise as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and done solely on merit!

Who are The Zolla Boys?
The Zolla Boys are a family bluegrass band from Torrington, Connecticut. The band consists of 14 and 15 years-old brothers Sam and Ben on mandolin and guitar, and their father Larry playing bass. On-line lessons, late night festival jams, and instruction from their dad have all helped in developing the Boys’ signature sound, and they are proud to be a part of the fabulous bluegrass community. The Zolla Boys have played many different venues and festivals, including Joe Val, Strawberry Park, Jenny Brook, Grey Fox, Podunk and Blistered Fingers.
Ben has been playing guitar and singing with Sam since 2012. He considers the Louvin and Stanley Brothers his biggest influences, but enjoys contemporary groups such as the Gibson Brothers, Boxcars, Blue Highway, and the Steep Canyon Rangers. Bryan Sutton and Tony Rice are two of his favorite lead guitar players, and he received his first flat-picking lessons from Bryan, while enrolled as a student in the Artistworks on-line music academy. Ben also shares his father’s love of “great food”, and spends a good amount of time in the kitchen.
Sam started on-line mandolin lessons at Artistworks Academy of Bluegrass, learning his first chops from the legendary Mike Marshall. He has since been influenced by Adam Steffey, Jesse Brock, Frank Solivan, and Chris Thile. He shares Ben’s passion for traditional brother duets, and continues to discover awesome Louvin Brothers songs to work on. When not practicing mandolin, he spends his time at USA Gymnastics in Watertown, Ct, where he competes as a Level 8 Junior Olympic gymnast.
