ROCK-N-ROLL hall of famer JOE PERRY helps SANDISK support the grammy foundation
Milpitas, California, SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK), the global leader in flash memory cards, today announced that its new philanthropic effort is getting a little musical help from Aerosmith’s Joe Perry. For every SanDisk slotRadio™ card purchased now through January 31, 2010, SanDisk will donate $1 to the GRAMMY Foundation® to help support their GRAMMY in the Schools® music education programs for high school students. Perry is working with SanDisk to help raise money for the GRAMMY Foundation and build awareness of the programs it offers to expose young people to careers in music and to recognize excellence in music education.
Perry is the co-founding member, principal co-songwriter, lead guitarist and co-producer of Aerosmith. He also just released his fifth solo CD “Have Guitar, Will Travel,” to critical acclaim on October 6. The Joe Perry Project is currently touring the nation in support of his new album.
“Even though technology has made music a lot more accessible, it sometimes gets in the way of the artist - fan relationship,” says Joe Perry. “But SanDisk’s slotRadio card and player takes the cumbersome technology out of the way because it’s so easy to use. And the fact that part of the proceeds are going to the GRAMMY Foundation and helping to bring music back into the schools is something that I can’t say enough about. It’s great to be a part of this.”
slotRadio cards give consumers instant access to some of their favorite styles of music, including Rock, Country, Oldies, Hip Hop/R&B, Latin and Classical. Each card contains several hand-crafted playlists featuring songs from Billboard® and other music charts’ artists. The plug-and-play slotRadio music cards are designed to deliver easy music enjoyment and can be paired with SanDisk’s Sansa® Clip+, Sansa® Fuze™ and slotRadio music players. slotRadio cards are sold at RadioShack® and Best Buy stores nationwide, as well as online at slotRadio.com.
