R Dub! and Slowjamastan Go Viral!
LOS ANGELES, CA, June 14, 2023 — Benztown, a global leader in radio imaging, voiceover, programming, podcasting and jingles, announces that R Dub!, creator, host, and producer of the Benztown-syndicated radio show “Sunday Night Slow Jams,” achieved his goal of visiting every country on the planet on May 6th, when he arrived in Country #193, Turkmenistan. His rare travel achievement puts him in a small group of people to ever visit all countries of the world. In fact, more people have traveled to space than have ever traveled to all 193 countries across the globe.
That milestone, along with news of the micronation R Dub! started in the California desert last year, the Republic of Slowjamastan (the world’s newest and fastest growing micronation), have gone viral across news outlets and social media in over 100 countries around the world in the last 48 hours. Global media coverage includes reports from CNN, Daily Mail, Yahoo! News, Insider, The Mirror, Metro UK, KTLA, Fox 5 San Diego, Mega Noticias Chile, BOL News (Pakistan), Curly Tales (Mumbai), and Mint (Delhi), among many others.
R Dub! said: “Holy cow! Never in a million years did I think this silly little project would explode like this! I feel like I’m in a dream! To see Slowjamastan in the headlines of news outlets around the world, in so many countries – dear God, what did I get myself into!? Maybe it’s because Slowjamastan is a nation that anyone and everyone in the world can join and enjoy – even if only virtually. Slowjamastan is a reprieve from the constant fighting and divisiveness so prevalent everywhere, at every moment. Our nation is an escape from all this drama. We welcome everyone, and we specifically don’t use any labels except one: We are all simply “Slowjamastani!” This is the kind of unity missing in America today! Maybe Slowjamastan is just what our world needs right about now?”
R Dub!’s nationally syndicated hit radio show, “Sunday Night Slow Jams” is heard on 200 radio stations across the U.S. and internationally, including the top three U.S. markets of New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
