Storm the Charts track makes the 6music playlist!

Posted in Final 40, News and media with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2010 by stormthecharts

REVERE‘s ‘We Won’t Be Here Tomorrow’ is one of the songs already named in our final 40.

Yesterday it was announced that Revere had also won the vote in the latest Steve Lamacq rebel playlist, which means it will be played in every daytime show on 6music for a week. Great news for the Storm to have one of our tracks played every day!

Another good reason to Save 6 Music, too.
