A call to action: A Carol on the radio

December 17, 2010 at 6:39 pm (Music) (, , )

It’s Christmas.  We have a Christmas song.

A Carol

Like every band, I sent my CD to a zillion college radio stations, who probably forgot they have it.

As we are about to release a music video for A Carol, and it’s Christmas, this would be the PERFECT time to have them play it.

Can you please help us?  The following is a list of college/indie radio stations that, according to my notes, should have my album.  You know what to do, right?  Call any of these stations (preferably those local to you, but I’m not picky) and request “A Carol” from the album Toyshop by Amanda White.

I know, I’m not the kind of person who calls into radio stations either.  But it would help out so much:

It would help me because I need as many people as possible to hear this song, and because your findings will help me update my data- ie, which stations do and don’t still have my album (some assholes sell unopened albums on eBay, which is a lesson to put some sort of “for promotional use only” stamp on it), which received them by mistake (if I stupidly sent it to a country music station), and which will happily play my music with a little prodding from my fans.  Also, see notes below as to confusion about whether or not a list of stations has my album- would LOVE to know without calling them all myself one by one.

It will also help the DJ’s, who want to play holiday music to be festive, but can’t find enough that doesn’t suck.

So if you could please do this for me and my band, and leave your results in the comments, it would be just the biggest help!  Thanks so much in advance.
