“When he first came around, Jesse Barnett was exactly what we needed on the scene: a fresh set of ears and a willingness to listen outside of his personal tastes to really understand the essence of an artist and their craft. Timely reports, efficient follow-up and fair pricing made it hard for us to look anywhere else. At the core I think his strongest suit is his genuine love of people. He’s very easy to work and communicate with, and I had nothing but positive experiences when I hired him.”

-Reis Baron, formerly of SCI-Fidelity Records

-Catie Wilber, WXRV/Boston, MA

“As a programmer, I find the Right Arm Resource website to be a great place to go when it comes time to listen to music. The media player has all the songs I need to listen to. As a former promotion person, I see Jesse, on a weekly basis, duke it out with everyone in the business and do a fine job at that. If I were a label, manager or band and needed to get my record heard, I’d make sure Right Arm Resource was part of the team.”

-Mark Radway, KRVO/Kalispell, MT

His integrity, knowledge, and understanding of the music business mixed with his hard work for the long term success of his radio and record partners makes Right Arm Resource an asset for the entire industry. He is one of the few independent record promoters able to not only work to satisfy his own professional goals but work towards the growth of his partners as well.”

-Rob Reinhart, Host and Executive Producer of “The Acoustic Cafe”

“Jesse has great taste and really does work the best records, more than anyone else out there. He doesn’t just take everything that comes his way, he “listens”. He goes way beyond the call of duty for the artist and the radio station to make sure every detail of a promotion are covered. I find myself playing much of what Jesse is working because it just always seems to fit our audience.”

-John McGue, WNKU/Cincinnati, OH

“What can one say about Jesse Barnett? In a world of “gimme gimme gimme,” Jesse is a gracious and magnanimous individual who understands the pressures radio programmers are under.

In a phrase: Jesse rocks!”

-Chris Wienk, WEXT/Albany, NY

He appreciates music and has the organizational skills to wrangle in all the clutter and give radio compelling and useful facts about an artist or record.”

-Bill Gruber, WAPS/Akron, OH

“I always look forward to seeing what Jesse is working next.  More times than not the project will find itself on air.  He’s always willing to go the extra mile to help set up an interview or get me what I need.  His website is a great source for keeping tabs on current artists and is a weekly visit for me.  Big props to the media player.”

I’ve known Jesse and worked alongside him since about 1993, and I have always known him to be a go-getter who shoot straight and plays well with others. You can’t do better than Jesse Barnett.”
