1. Check out the Radio Requesting Guidelines, so we can be effective in supporting and promoting Kris in the most positive way possible.
2. Go to the Radio Stations List, and click on the "Red (HAC)" and "Red (Pop)" tabs for your local station information such as the request line, website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and whether they have played Kris' songs before.
A few things to keep in mind:

Re: Requesting at KPLZ in Seattle.
I've called & spoken to the program director at KPLZ (who is the morning DJ who answers the request line) twice - once this week & once a couple of weeks ago. Both times he's told me that RCA has not been in to service the song to him. Two weeks ago he said "I guess RCA doesn't want me to play the song" and this week he said "if they come in here & service me I'll play it".
I would love if RCA or someone on Kris' team could address this. Thanks.
I can agree with you totally. I have sent tweets to the station and to the DJs. No results, I so want to hear TVOL on the radio. It was so awesome when Kris was interviewed at MyFM and thought finally they will play the song, but no :-( will keep trying.
I know what you mean, since it is my station as well. KBIG is a Clear Channel station, and they have a rule where DJ's can't play a song that the Program Director haven't added to the playlist. The thing about KBIG (based on the past), the PD tends to wait until the song charts or continues to chart. So far, TVOL has finally charted in the top 40 of the HAC chart. The last two weeks at #40 and #38 respectively. It's at #37 at the moment and hopefully it stays that way (or increases) by the time Sunday comes around. It does take patience, whew. LLWD released in September, and KBIG added LLWD in December....the time when LLWD was moving up the charts gradually. It eventually became a 2010 hit! This is just my opinion, but I think what we do makes a difference. Yesterday was the first time KBIG playing TVOL, although only on streaming. Read more about it in the note above on KBIG (under "ADDS") if you haven't yet. I think showing interest will be helpful in the long run and when the timing is right. Anyway, hope this gives you an idea that it is possible to get there. Hopefully everyone in other regions in the United State continually request, and bring TVOL higher on the charts. I appreciate that we're working together on this!
