Radio Play on WSTW
As you may have heard, Lindsay and I were in Kenya for the past week and a half. We got back on Sunday. As we were driving home, I got a phone call from Ian. He very excitedly said, "TURN YOUR RADIO ON!!! WSTW!!!" I switched on the radio and hit preset #3. Low and behold, "Falling Behind" was rocking up the tri-state area. I simply could not believe it. I almost crashed the car in my shock. Man, things sure have changed in the past week and a half.
If you are not from around here, let me fill you in. 93.7 WSTW is "Delaware's Choice for Hit Music." It is definitely the biggest station in DE and it is very popular throughout the Wilmington / Philadelphia area. Having airtime on that station could be very good for us.
Hearing myself on the radio has been a dream of mine for many years. It truly was an amazing feeling to be driving home in my car, just back from overseas, and hear my band playing over the airwaves. Linds and I were so excited. It actually brought a little tear of joy to Lindsay's eye.
So here's the scoop. The way that WSTW does it is as follows: They play a new song kind of as a "feeler" to see how people like it. If they get good responses from people and requests for more, they will work the band into their normal rotation. TLM needs your help!
Please, please, please write in, call in, or fax in requests to hear more of TLM. You can specifically request to hear "falling behind" again, or you could request to hear "Simpler than it Seems." That song would probably be a very good fit for this particular station. So please email them, call them: (800)544-9370, or fax them a request: (302)478-WSTW.
We would all be very thankful to you if you take a few seconds to request more Look Machine music.

I sent the guy a request. His response...
Thanks for the e-mail.
I'll certainly play them again. Probably not this week, but in the near future.
"in the near future"......what the heck is that supposed to mean? Maybe if a buttload more people sent requests in he would play it again in the near near future, as in this week.
