well it basically feels like Christmas as i was browsing my other favorite forum that is full of radio info. and i looked at the CHR/POP adds thread, sure enough Skillet - The Older I Get goes for adds May 8th. that is this tuesday, so we have only a couple of days to request this at every top 40 station in the country! they need to know what is coming! i knew this hour was coming, this is Skillet greatest door to the mainstream audience ever. so it is time to come together and lets show the US who Skillet is and make this a top 40 HIT!

IE request The Older i get at your local station that plays artists like Pink, Gwen stephani, Daughtry, Akon, all american rejects, etc. come tuesday, all top 40 stations will have The Older I Get, so dont waste another moment.

Are we able to request out of state? I already requested to the Oregon stations. I might be able to do the Washington ones since it's still in the Pacific Northwest area, if it's not "cheating."

But everyone should request, request, request.

here this is portland's Top 40 station. we should have people post links to their local top 40 stations, and then have everyone request at that one. its a good system.

here is mine.

john seemed kind of pessimistic about this single impacting Top 40. i told him we would do our best to prove him otherwise. so this is it. today is the day, request like crazy at your local top 40 stations, and since they have such a high volume of listeners, i think requesting a couple times a day couldnt hurt. goodnight.

And then it downloads, and yuo can either save it or just open it.

All--thx so much for your Ardent support for Skillet!! As you know Comatose is Skillet's fastest selling record to date and that is because of our loyal support from you!!!!

It was just brought to my attention from Skille's label (Atlantic) that someone has been bulk emailing PD's accross the country regarding playing "Older". I know on the surface this would seem helpful but in reality it only hurts our chances to get airplay.

We definately need your support but let's keep it to the area you live in so that PD's dont tune out the voices of Skillet fans and all of those who are hearing the song on their local station and are calling in response as well.

Thx

Jennifer, a bulk email is where you send it to more than one address at a time. So what I was doing was sending it to every station on the list at once, but I guess I'll do it individually now.

I guess I should apologize for the bulk email. I only sent one bulk email, but I guess that's enough.

So should we only send one request per station per day or what?

one per station/ dj per day

So does that mean emailing every DJ at a station is bad?

So does that mean emailing every DJ at a station is bad?

no. the only thing worried about is when a single person reading several emails from the same person, or seeing that is was sent to every station on Top 40 :P so you can send one to each DJ.

something else to keep in mind is, technically stations only want to hear from people in their listening area. so when you are on a site and it asks for your area, you need to put an area close to that station. and im not gonna say you should do it, but its up to you :). just remember that.

I've been requesting mostly to local stations around here. I don't like putting in a non Salem zip code. It feels too much like lying.

That's what I've been doing. I've also been using different names and different email addresses. ;)

Sounds like common sense to me, sending it to the stations nearest you, as you'll be listening to them and not ones that are five states away.

You can call and request also, I'm assuming, right? That is if radio stations allow that sort of thing. (I haven't done that in years!)

Geneva
05-22-2007, 05:04 PM
I'd rather request everywhere rather than around my area, cause no one around here will play it.

dont give up on your area! tell your friends to request. Geneva.

Riz, i see what you are saying. but personally i dont listen to the radio often. so i just request for Skillet's publicity.

Geneva
05-22-2007, 05:45 PM
I will. I've been kinda bugging this one radio station to get the song.

timmyrotter
05-22-2007, 05:54 PM
something else to remember when at a station's website is to email the program and/or music director, they have a say on what gets played. i did include many of those on my list.

Okay panheads, I need your help. Start requesting The Older I Get here in Albuquerque! Even if you don't live here, it doesn't matter, just go to www.kobfm.com & click on "KOBFM - Programming." Click on "Request A Song" & email the DJs! I've requested it every day & they haven't played it yet, it needs to get some airtime! :)

Geneva
05-24-2007, 01:40 PM
Done. :D

Hey, I emailed them again. I hope they play it!

If you had the time, would you mind sending an email to this dude? Zander@y94.com

Hopefully my stupid radio station will play it eventually...

For those who don't like fudging around zip codes to say you are in the listening area, there are quite a few stations that are also online. Therefore, you can still stick your correct zip in there, and if there is a mention of how you heard of the station, mention "online" (which is still very, very true).

Geneva
05-26-2007, 07:25 PM
Haha sweet. :)

I just spent the last hour requesting (it's an addiction, I can't help it!) and so far I've gotten one response:

"I'd love to, but my show is all 80's. Skillet rox."

So, he won't play it, but at least he likes Skillet.. :D

Well, you might what to look at what the radio stations you request to play and aim for alternative and Top 40 stations.

Geneva
05-27-2007, 12:54 PM
Yeah. It was on that one radio request site with the drop down stuff.. if that made sense.

So I figured it was top 40...

It sounds like he is the '80s dj, the one who plays only top 40 hits from the '80s. Try emailing other DJs at that same station.

Geneva
05-29-2007, 03:36 PM
Good idea. :)

timmyrotter

Panheads, keep using the radio tool and request on top 40 and HAC! the song is picking up momentum and now is a great time to help the push!

always remember, Never give out your location when you request! it can completely defeat our hard work! thanks guys, now request like crazy!

timmyrotter

im as guilty as any, i know its easy to get burned out on emailing Dj's but lets remember our mission, let make the Older I Get a hit! keep requesting on Top 40 and HAC!!!

soon we will not be requesting alone, Skillet's management decided to use my radio tool to send out to all the panheads, this should be great for the Single, and the band. but keep requesting like crazy.

i feel like we are at Helms Deep and the riders of Rohan are about to come over that hill and reinforce us to push back Sauruman... you get the picture, they are gonna help us make it a hit!

and the kicker
KSTP-FM Minneapolis Hot AC tw 21 lw 0 audience in millions 0.233

to give you a better understanding, this is a popular station. Skillet is gaining about 7 plays a day, the top song is getting 46 a week. it is getting played more than, Gwen's Avril's Fray's and John Mayer's latests, thats just to name a few.
