ET closed last night (Sunday) with the NCOE video highlighting the dance scene! I wish we knew! They announced Adam's new video and his new Album Trespassing. What a great PR moment for Adam! You can see it on AL 24/7. Gini
Polly..fixing to do my requests and will continue to do so but one has to wonder when the window will start to close for this song,i cannot understand for the life of me why this song is not already in the top 10 on HCC and don't get me started about top 40,same old story there...a song they played a role in picking for his next single but refusing to play..talk about two faced backstabbing bunch,that is radio...passing out spins for Adam like Army rations..very little each time!...i hope RCA/SONY remembers what their "friends" in radio are not doing!..hep.
Just came from WIFC 9 at 9...other leads with 20.51%,closest is around 9%,sure that is NCOE leading all others and on WPLJ playlist NCOE leads with 77%,i rest my case...but the fans and people do not matter to radio,wannabees and good hair packaged boxes do,just like corn flakes but with hair...hep.
Since being released NCOE video has been in the upper tier of the top 10,mostly at the #1 spot...currently #3 with over 36,000 views but the number could be 60,000,just does not matter to the powers at be on vh1 and must say i have lost most of my respect for Jim and faith in that program,music and talent is not the measure anymore,just the personal whims of the program director and honestly feel they do not count the votes on the countdown,they decide and only leave you the illusion that you play a role but not really..it is the hook they use to pull you back each week...hep.
Hep, You are so right, none of it matters. If the NCOE video had nine million views and NCOE was the most requested song on radio today, it just wouldn't matter. A fan at AO actually called a local DJ and asked him why they never play NCOE. He said that he liked the song and he liked it a lot better than BTIKM, BUT he said that unless the BIG radio stations play a song A LOT, then the smaller stations won't play it.
Z100 in NY picked up WWFM and played it really often as did Q102 in Philly. When smaller stations see that happening, they follow the lead. Z100 has given NCOE zero spins and Q102 added it but gives it just 9 spins a week. That's why it's not getting more radio airplay. The DJs all really like Adam as a person but the station managers make the decisions, NOT the DJs.
Polly...your post states the cold hard facts of what Adam is up against in the U.S.,there is simply no getting around it...you bring up a perfect example with Z100,a huge station in N.Y...request there everyday and sure we are not alone in doing that but has not made any difference at all,in fact NCOE is not even on their playlist..very frustrating!..hep.
