Happy Friday people! Not only is the sun shining but we woke up to find that Vanessa Feltz played us this morning on Radio 2! What a lovely woman! Here's a pic of her because I want her smiling face looking at me whilst I write the rest of this blog! You may have noticed from our tweets, etc, that we've been getting lots of plays recently across the UK but you probably don't know how it really works... So I'll tell you!
We work with a lovely man called Joe Mallot who takes our CD "What You Need" to ALL the cool radio stations. The producers/presenters will then decide whether to play it or not... BUT.... IT'S ALL DOWN TO YOU!... THE PEOPLE! Our CD is sitting on almost every radio station desk (including all the local radio stations) and if they get a text or a tweet asking them to play it, all they have to do is shove the CD in the system and we're singing! It's power to the people maaan! They love hearing from fans and about new music coming through, and we love being played on the radio so it's win-win!
We're extremely grateful to everyone who is already emailing, tweeting, and texting their favourite radio shows. If we get enough support from radio, it may just be enough to launch Rubylux into the stratosphere. We can't do it without you and we need you now more than ever! Let's do it!!!
Presenters that have supported our single so far at Radio2 are Dermot O'leary (playing this weekend), Alex Lester, and Vanessa Feltz. We're also on the "New to Q playlist" at Q radio and have been played by BBC Sussex, Juice FM, Olympic radio, Phoenix FM, Radio West Suffolk, Jack FM, Express Fm, Siar FM, and many more to come as we're just getting started!! ;0)
We're spending today getting ready for Shakedown festival in Brighton tomorrow; sharing the stage with Razorlight, Ed Sheeran, and Example to name but a few. It's gonna be HUGE!! The next few gigs that we're playing are in some great venues with great bands so make sure you catch us and come to say hello! See you soon.
