Remember that the whole concept of this project is to work together as a team. Get to know the radio stations in your area, and get to know other Kris fans within that area. Help each other promote Kris in any way you can.
Hello Purple team! I am Susie and I live in Boyds, Maryland which is a DC burb. Ok I feel like a loser for being so behind on here. Can I say how I am so impressed with you all for stepping up? Especially Dorothy and Rana - you guys rock.
The chitchat Susie's got going with Tommy and Toby is a great thing - we've gotten some good info out of them. If you are from DC area and haven't shot an email to Carol Parker yet, please do so.
Today I tweeted the KAO video to Toby since he does the Idol blog, and also to WMZQ. A little shy on Jack. :)
I fall under dy77's area (MD/VA/DC) and have really followed her lead. I was consistently tweeting Tommy Mcfly mainly b/c he does the "New at Nine on Mix". They did play the heck out of LLWD and seemed to give TT a try. TT was on his page survey forever always winning so I don't know why the didn't play it, especially since they seem to have a love affair with Pat M. anyhow, Tommy was sick a couple weeks ago and not actually on air, so I took the opportunity to put a bug in his ear that it was time to update his survey b/c AWM was actually Kris' latest single, not TT. I would like to think I made an impact b/c he actually updated the page, but unfortunately didn't include AWM on his new survey. But again, I would like to think that he was listening. I did call one night and speak with him and I asked him to play AWM. He said basically he didn't know if he had it and those "New at Nine" songs are not his call. He is just the pretty face (HA). He said he can make suggestions and would. We chatted for a bit and he even put me on hold and came back to talk to me some more. I asked what was the best way for AWM to get some attention and he suggested contacting Carole Parker the PD via email. So I did that.
As far as Hot 99.5, I kind of feel like Toby is a great guy and really does like Kris. We spoke a little after the Hard Rock Idol Gives Back in DC and he really did seem to genuinely like Kris and his music. I follow Toby (@tkradio) on Twitter and he did follow back. Toby and I occasionally chat football, so Itook the opportunity to DM him the other day asking him to look into playing AWM. If I am correct, I think Toby is the assistant PD. So I figured what could it hurt. Didn't hear anything in response.
I also try to watch @replies to Mix 107.3 and Hot 99.5 to look for KA fans requesting AWM. Especially the ones who I don't seem to know. I try to get a follow and then DM them about Little Pawns and all the info here.
So that's what I've done. Not a ton, but I do feel like every little piece of info and every little effort helps. #babysteps
