How to Request Music on your Local Radio Stations

Pin It

turnuptheradiolSince most of us that love dance music or actual music that is not played 5 times per hours on Top 40 repeatedly such as that Megan Trainer or Bruno Mars crap it’s a struggle to get our music played on the radio. Most of the radio stations in the United States are owned by Clear Channel Radio and they have a formula where they pretty much make most of their stations play what comes down from corporate. I hate to break it to you but there is really no such thing as DJ requests on top 40 radio but calling in and getting your “vote” in may count almost as much as voting in the election. Not much but it helps in a rigged system.  I noticed a few posts from other fans of underplayed music and thought I would make my own to make sure it gets played!  This is more of a United States based radio airplay list but with some International stations.

madonnalivingforlovegifArtists like Madonna who do not go on a big radio tour plugging their music find themselves banned from Top 40. Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga go on intensive radio station appearances and even the country stations in Kansas see them show up. The reason is artists such as Madonna have a family and put more time into her tour making it perfect from start to finish and it may not be in her contract like it is with most artists that they have to hit up all these stations. We would love to see more of the Rebel Heart album played on radio and in clubs of course but to do this we need to get the word out and get her added to the playlist. Because Madonna and most dance music do not have the annoying pre-teen following such as #BELIEBERS, #LITTLEMONSTERS, #KATYCATS, #SWIFTIES, #GLAMBERTS, #RIHANNANAVY and so on… we have to help promote in alternative ways to see a song played more.

A start is online streaming. Billboard changed its metric for ranking the Hot 100 a few years ago to weight online streaming pretty heavily. Billboard’s Hot 100 rankings are now a combination of 1) digital sales, through outlets like iTunes and Amazon; 2) radio requests and plays; and 3) online streaming as reported on the On-Demand Songs chart.

Listen to the song a few times per online station. Try to use one of these online services such as Spotify, Pandora or Soundcloud instead of your personal iTunes.

Viva Lost Vegas Gay Nightlife

lostvegasgayIt seemed as if Liaison Nightclub was doing spectacular as it gave away 10,000 in prizes for Halloween, had Ru Paul stars such as Coco Monteose performing along with others, Official Britney Spears after parties and had Lance Bass host nights with bottle services in the $200’s at tables. The club was located inside of Bally’s which is an odd location but being across from Drai’s you would think it wasn’t too bad. Liaison Las Vegas closed its doors last week and took away its Facebook page.

Liaison Nightclub had a line extending to Bally’s slot machines, with generally packed dance floors, several occupied VIP tables and busy bars between midnight and 2 a.m.—typically signs of a healthy, successful night. Several attendees sported Britney Spears shirts, having just walked over from Planet Hollywood where she had just performed for the afterparty.

This ultralounge was first of its kind inside a Vegas casino—which opened its doors last June after Victor Drai and this team moved their afterhours party back to its basement location at the Cromwell but kept the space they renovated at great expense. Even as January reportedly saw an uptick in attendance, the Drai team has decided to end the operation. Employees were informed last week at a meeting.

APP to find a toilet when you gotta go!

Pin It

collegeboyspissI can now say I have heard it all but there really is an APP out that lets you find a nearby toilet to use. You won’t believe the name of it… Air PNP. You can now find a place to do a number one or two with the Air PNP APP and it may cost you $1 to $5. I would seriously be suspicious if someone let me come in their home I did not know and let me do my thing for free. The funniest part about it you may have some people getting that PNP as in Party N’ Play confused with a bathroom stop. Check the APP out if you do not believe me!
