36 unscripted, unrehearsed Christmastime memories beautifully recalled by the real people who lived them. Three dozen one-minute holiday stories that make listeners turn the radio UP.
Wow Jon...
First of all, I want to thank you for this thread. I'm an independent musician who has tried for YEARS to get an original Christmas song played on the radio. Every year I surf around the internet trying to gather info on stations playing Christmas music. How wonderful for me to find all the info gathered in one place. THANK YOU.
Secondly, I want to say thank you for pulling back the cover on what some of these stations are doing. I knew there was something fishy going on when I was in Maine listening to an "all Christmas" station and the deejays and the on-air guests all had southern accents!
Do you have any suggestions for independent musicians trying to have a Christmas song played on the radio?
My little song has a "cult" following. To find out the unique way its being heard, just type "House on Christmas Street" into the search box on youtube.com.
Anyhow, thanks so much. It's an uphill battle for we indie musicians and so even though I know that's not your purpose for offering this info it really is great.

Thank you for the kind words, Judy. Regular followers of my rants about commercial radio know all too well what I think about the stale, unimaginative, cookie cutter programming that offers nothing more than hyped popular artists of the equally lame big record companies. (Catch an entry in my blog here entitled ‘Radio: It Is What It Is But Ain’t What it Used To Be’) Bottom line; commercial radio is all about making money for the owners and NOT about promoting good music!

Independent artists are left few avenues in which to truly make a living with their music. Judy, your cult following is representative of those who believe in music but not as defined by commercial radio or the big three or four record companies. You could probably tell me more about how to get played on the radio than I could tell you! After all, you are the one trying!

The more known of independent artists seem to be hooked up with smaller record companies, such as Yep-Roc, that beat the internet bushes and take an active role in promotion. Many also offer direct sales of CDs and artist fan products. Some indie record companies even have online radio stations and/or offer podcasts. A strong internet presence is a must! Indie artists also have to sacrifice family/home life to tour small venues across the country as well.

The mystery remains on how to get played on an honest to God, over the air radio station. There are a string of locally owned, real music seeking stations dotted around all around the country. Where one could find a list of these, I really don’t know. The other alternative in the U.S. is public radio. I could easily launch into a tirade about them too, but I’ll stick to the issue. Getting noticed by public radio is an increasingly difficult proposition these days as well. I think it goes back to the small labels that promote indie artists.

I’m not sure I’ve answered any of your questions, Judy. However, rest assured there are plenty of fans of music one will never hear on big time commercial radio out there! It’s time to put a positive spin on “cults” anyway!

Jon, I know we're kicking into high gear now!

Here's another one in Knoxville that I found this morning:

It's Love 89.1 with a Listen Live link (though it appears to be down over the past few minutes, it was playing some great stuff earlier!).
