College radio station KACV took the leap last week, adding “SUNSHINE” to regular rotation, proving worthy of their catch phrase “Amarillo College’s cutting edge”.
Only four songs were added to regular rotation and the other three names on the list were Gerard Way (singer, My Chemical Romance), Broken Bells (Danger Mouse and James Mercer’s band) and the band James, whose excellent track “Laid” was one of the best songs of the nineties. Leanne admits to being a little bit excited about the band James, liking and favoriting her posts and tweets on the radio company she’s keeping.
“SUNSHINE” is enjoying repeat plays from early supporters, including 101.1FM Riff 2 Detroit, also adding a few new stations to the growing list, such as KGNU in Boulder, Colorado.
Houndstooth Radio, took “SLINGSHOT” for a spin, prompting us to google and happily discover an incredibly cool playlist and radio station. Created and curated by Kurt St. Thomas, I’m told it isn’t easy to catch his ear. Recommended listening. You’ll find Houndstooth Radio here: www.houndstoothradio.com
It’s great to know there’s still decision makers in the music business, willing to take a chance and back their hunches based purely on merit of the music. Thank you to all of those people.
The “Choking On Halos” video celebrated an exclusive World Premiere on PureGrainAudio.com before announcing the launch of Leanne’s “Other People’s Shoes” peace promotion. Centred on a peace wish embedded in the song and short film she made, the #THISisme #OtherPeoplesShoes campaign intends to focus attention on the value of empathy and goodwill. Timely thoughts for a world at war, fast approaching World Peace Day.
