Can't wait to hear and promote new Kris tunes!
Just to get the ball rolling - here's what I've noticed in the DC area as far introducing new music on the radio:
94.7 Freshfm - WIAD - They are probably the most likely station in DC proper to give a new song a chance. They have an "insiders club" that I'd encourage all DMV Kris fans to sign up for. Lots of contests (I can say that I've won a CD and another LP member won Lifehouse tickets) but even better, the chance to frequently rate the music they play on air. I notice they test out songs on the survey they email you before they play them. Here is the link to sign up: http://insiders.947freshfm.radio.com/main.aspx.
Hot 99.5 WIHT - Despite Toby's many blog postings, I notice they just play new songs. What I've really noticed though, is they'll give them one or two random spins, usually on weekends or evenings. I'm guessing that if they get a good response, they'll keep playing them and if not, they won't. Confusing though - even when they've gotten a good response to music that fits in on their station, they still might not play it. Since I have a teen, I know that One Direction and Big Time Rush fans are not very happy with Hot 99.5's response to their requests. Adam fans have been requesting his song, and so far the station has just spun it on its iheartradio stream while airing a commercial on DC airwaves. So still figuring out Hot 99.5. (It's a Clear Channel station, so it may be a corporate decision from above.)
B101.5 WBQB in Fredericksburg - This is the most new music friendly station. It's the only one in the DMV playing Adam's new song as well as Andy Grammer's new song, and it's playing both regularly. It also plays LLWD regularly. I'm not sure how it makes its decisions, it seems to just start playing the songs.
Mix 107.3 WRQX - I don't really listen to this station so am not sure how they do the new music. Their playlist is more varied (read has more oldies). They used to do a New at Nine segment and the Truth would be played during that. Even though they got great feedback on it, they didn't add it. They've dropped the segment since and added even more oldies from what I can tell.
So that's DC area - let's hear how they try out the new music in your area (and if DMVers have info to add to mine, please do)
WSTW, has spun the Vision of Love twice as of this posting.
Their DJ posted on Facebook: Last Song Standing is one of the many tools we use for music selection. It's a good indicator of which newer songs our listeners enjoy. Since LSS is only one of the tools we use, there is no guarantee that the winning song will end up on our playlist.
Still - local (Wilmington, DE listening area which extends into PA and NJ) folks should request and vote in this poll. The poll is held at 10 pm EST. All station contact info can be found on our radio list linked at top of thread.
Now that things are in full swing, please comment on this post instead regarding The Vision of Love: http://littlepawns.com/forum/topics/purple-team-the-vision-of-love-...
