Spin is the name of the magazine. I decided on this particular magazine because it is a modern publication It’s not one I regularly read and therefore decided to explore it and find out more about it. Also, it’s also familiar and recognised to many leading artists. The magazine has a red background logo and usually has a celebrity portrait displayed on the front cover of the magazine for the sake of publicity.
The music usually is hip hop or college based rock music. Doug Brod is the name of the editor. The stand out features is the colouring and range of artists ‘Spin’ covers. The price of the magazine is just under $ 4 in America where over £4 in the UK as it has to be shipped or flown from the USA.
