Good promo with 7 days to go!

12 04 2010

Another good day on the promo trail. Was meant to start the day with an interview on Sky News but they postponed at the last minute and went for an interview with a certain David Cameron instead to chat about some election thats going on! Should be on there later this week or next week. So the day started with a visit to Sun Radio to do an interview with Martel Maxwell. Went really well. She played 19 Boys To War and really seemed to get the message we are trying to put across. Hopefully the newspaper will take note and write an article! Feel free to email The Sun newspaper and tell them!



After the interview it was a quick transfer across town to Talksport Radio for an interview Haksby and Jacobs. This is a great show and was a good chance to play the record to a larger more diverse audience. Had a great time with the guys and i think that really enhanced the feel of the interview.
Now, i’m over a BBC Western House doing a bunch a interviews for regional BBC stations including BBC Sussex, BBC Surrey and BBC Manchester. So if you’re in any of these places, look out for the interview coming soon!

Easter brings global news coverage!

6 04 2010

This Easter weekend has been a whirlwind of press coverage at home and abroad for the 25 Anniversary release of 19. Everything from BBC News, to ABC News and NME to BBC 6 Music. It’s great to see that the message if finally cutting through and people are starting to take notice. We’ve also been having a great response from troops serving abroad and those who have fought for their country. Ultimately, these are the people that count. All of this coverage means nothing if the brave people that Paul is trying to highlight in ’19’ don’t get the recognition they deserve. It’s been a tough road trying to get TV and Radio to play something that doesn’t shy away from the reality of what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan. The BBC One Show, who have done a great piece on 19 which was to be aired tonight (6th April) have postponed this, due to not wanting to show something that is related to the war now the election has been announced. Lets all just put the war to the back of our mind shall we, whilst our Prime Minister relates the recovery of our economy to Wayne Rooney foot. Radio is also being a little shy to the record. This is why the support of everyone online talking about this release is so important. The more pressure that is put on broadcasters, and the more people want to hear it, they will have to give in soon!

Aside from these small things, everything has been going great! Don’t forget you’ve still got time to enter our competition to win a signed promo CD of 19. This is very rare, so get your entries in before midnight on Thursday 8th April (GMT) http://bit.ly/991AJX
