1. Area residents please personally call your local station (if on chart below) and thank them for playing StandUp. Most of these have been played overnight and not in prime time. We need to change that. Be sure and tell them you would like to hear it again.
2. For the rest, tweet or email your appreciation – be very nice and respectful – or you can leave it on their website or facebook. Since we want to keep track of what radio stations we have coverage for, please make a quick note in the comments like “called WKEE in Memphis to thank them for playing StandUp.” We will keep the info on a spread sheet so we can know where we still need coverage.
4. This week is the time to join your local stations listener club if you haven’t already. The top 40 stations are listed on the pull down tab here called Radio Stations. Those are the stations for Love Me Bad. Look for their contests where they pit LMB against another song and listeners vote. Let us know in the comments section on the NINJA NEWS page right away if your local station is having a contest. Active Rock stations for StandUp will be posted on the Radio Station pull-down tab very soon.
5. We are just two weeks out from the release of Memories of a Beautiful Disaster. The CD was sent to bloggers and newspapers to listen to at the end of last week and review and we expect to see the reviews start rolling in. American Idol is kind of like football playoffs through the Superbowl. Fans of other contestants that did not make it as far, or of contestants from past years like to voice their displeasure in the comments sections of articles about James – and the reviews will be no exception. Don’t worry, this is classic Idol and the more threatening James success is to others, the worse it will get. So, don’t get disheartened, JUST GOOGLE JAMES TO LOOK FOR THOSE REVIEWS AND MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE POSITIVE COMMENTS ABOUT JAMES. The goal is to far outnumber fans of others (kind of like fans of other teams – it really is like sports or politics and it can get ugly). Chin up, take the high toad, and fill the comments full of your excitement for the CD and sing James’ praises – in other words just be us – but publicly!
