Thread Name: Post-show CD Sales Surge?
Subject: RE: Post-show CD Sales Surge?
I think it'd be better if someone was to call NPR and try to get through to a live body. Just speculating, but I'll bet they get tons of emails and mail, so it takes some extra to get their attention.

I know when I was working on getting my brother's concert tape played on a classical program on NPR I didn't get anywhere until I called and talked to a live person. I also had to be persistent before I was able to get that far.

Personal contact with dj's or programming directors is good, too. I am personna non grata with the npr guy in Wyoming, but they are heard as far away as Boulder, CO, as well as online, so maybe Sorcha could email him and let him know her group is on the CD. Local interest will garner more of a response, too, imo.

I'll ask our old radio friend who is working in the industry and knows a ton of people what he'd recommend or if he can get us some contacts.

Of course, if a ton of emails showed up at NPR, all with the "Mudcat CD" in the subject line, we'd probably get their attention. Maybe we could get a page set up with one of those form letters where one can just click and send the email: Dear So and So, etc.:-)

THE BANNER LOOKS GREAT ON THE HOME AND FORUM PAGES, THANKS, Jeff and Max!! And, Tweed!!
