That's a good offer but don't think I'll bother as there's not that much in it really.

The magazine is very much focussed on the music business itself though there is still enough there to interest music fans.

The latest issue of the magazine, out today, is good as it's the 60th anniversary of the launch of Music Week (then called Record Retailer until Billboard magazine bought the publication along with Record Mirror and changed the name to Music Week in 1971). Good going for a magazine that almost closed in 2012 and would have if a buyer had not been found as then owner UBM decided to cut its losses as the magazine was losing too much money. Now it's back in profit and sales are back up after many years of seemingly being in terminal decline (think back to the 70s, 80s and 90s when every record shop used to display the chart pages pull out, once the Singles chart became a fast moving joke in the mid 90s shops stopped displaying the chart and therefore stopped buying the magazine).

I did sign up for the free trial a week and a half ago but haven't received any print issues as yet.

Interesting to see the digital version though, it is an interesting read but not sure I can justify the cost as just a music/charts fan. I'm sure it's an invaluable tool and well worth the money for anybody in the industry however.

It's good value at 50% off, Shame Music Week couldn't rerun the promotion they did three years ago. £1 a month for 6 months and then the regular montly subscription rate for the next 6 months. That was a bargain.

It's possible you might be able to pay monthly. I started off with a full year's subscription in 2004 but phoned up just as the year was up and was able to pay a monthly subscription. Although the subscription company is now a different one it might be possible to still subscribe monthly which for the full package would work out at £10.38. For the digital or print package it would be £7.46 a month. It may be worth giving the subscription company a call or even contact one of the staff at Music Week. I've emailed a few of them (including the Editor) in the past when I had queries and all were very helpful. And a sale is a sale, I doubt they'd turn it down even if it takes a bit longer to set up monthly payments by Direct Debit rather than a one off card payment.

Yes that’s true. Thanks for the advice, I’ll see if there’s an affordable way to do it.

I did receive last week’s issue in the post today funnily enough, was waiting when I got home.
