It's me again!
Lots of cool things going on with the US street team! Last night we had a MASSIVE online radio station search for stations NOT currently playing Poets and we sent out messages to these stations suggesting and requesting their music. This was just late last night and I wake this morning and my inbox is full of replies, all of them positive!
Several of these stations even began playing Poets today already!
Some examples of their feedback:
From one: “U got it we will add Poets of the fall to our playlist. Any particular songs?”
From Another: “We don't have anything by them at the moment, but I'll definitely check out their music. ~Melody”
I sent her a couple of songs and she added them into rotation. She tweeted this morning about it, Poets even retweeted it. And just this very minute I received another email from her saying: “Thanks for sending the MP3's! Really great songs! I got them added to our playlist today, and they've already been requested several times! ”
YES! Also, it looks like this station gets a LOT of traffic if their twitter feed is any indication!
See the tweet?
Another: “Hi, Thanks for contacting Permanence Radio on the Live 365 network. We will most definitely do our best to get Poets Of The Fall on our playlist in the very near future.”
(sounds promising and we will be watching this station)
And here: “I will check them out today - thank you for the tip”
And then he obviously did check because tonight I got this: “We are going to add Show Me This Life and Morning Tide tomorrow. Will air between 7pm and midnight CDT for the first time.”
And yet again from another: “Hey, thanks for the tip. I managed to find "Sleep" from a few years ago. Will be looking at their latest release later today. "Sleep" should come up before the "Breakfast Blend" show ends at 10am US Eastern.”
One of my favs too!!
And here: “I can put them in rotation but I'd like to know when is it convenient for most of their fans to listen? My impression some fans might be in Europe?
Either way it's exciting meeting new people and learning about new music.
And he has since played The Happy Song at least twice that we heard and also promoted it on their facebook wall, see??
We did another mass search and request again this night and so I would expect some more feedback in the morning.
All of these online stations we are watching have the feedback button which makes it really easy to give good feedback!
With all of these stations starting to play Poets, we sure could use more eyes to help monitor and give feedback. The more feedback they get, the more airtime Poets gets.
If you’re from the US and would like to help Poets get to the states, why not check out the street team and maybe give us a hand!
We are also working on trying to get Poets on some FM broadcast stations, although this campaign is a bit slower going and successes are hard to come by, but we will keep trying!US Poets fans, come give us a hand!
<<<click that to give us a hand
Edited to add:
The one that said this: “Hi, Thanks for contacting Permanence Radio on the Live 365 network. We will most definitely do our best to get Poets Of The Fall on our playlist in the very near future.” ...
I just perchance went over there right now and they were playing The Lie Eternal...only one day later
