The Music Trades is a 129-year-old Americantrade magazine that covers a broad spectrum of music and music commerce, domestically and abroad. The magazine was founded in New York City in 1890 and, since the mid-1970s, has been based in Englewood, New Jersey. The Music Trades is one of the longest-running, without interruption, trade publications in the world. The January 2020 issue — Vol. 167, No. 12 — is approximately the three thousand and eighty-first issue. A controlling ownership over the last 90 years — seventy percent of the publication's total age — has been held by three generations of the Majeski family, making it among the few current publications of any ilk that has been closely held by a single family for as long a period.
