Just to let you all know, I LOVE the JPL and have learned so much from many
of you, either in the emails that you send out to the group or what some of
you have shared with me since I joined, I think in '99.
I was just releasing my debut album, "Dot Wilder, Live from the Warehouse",
and was trying to read up on how to get airplay. I bought 2 books (forgotten
their names now..they're somewhere in my book boxes) that described how to
promote one's cd, but was having a bit of trouble getting in contact with the
names and emails listed in the book.
Then, as I was receiving my JPL emails, I came up with a plan. I decided to
keep track of all the JPL jazz djs' emails (please, forgive me..please tell
me what you all prefer to be known as) and sent out an email to each (I think I
sent out 200 or more emails for this) introducing myself, asking a few
questions (would they at least consider giving my cd airplay if I sent it to
them?) and then sending off my cd and info about me to each that I contacted that
replied, "yes, please send it". Many of you gave my cd a chance, and I thank
you from the bottom of my heart!!
Well, guys (and girls) the first time I saw my name/cd/song title on a
playlist sent to the JPL list, I was overjoyed and so excited. I thank those who
gave my cd an airplay chance. I've even used these playlists in my promo kits.
In fact, I met Brad Stone and Jae Sennett at an IAJE conf a few yrs back and
enjoyed talking to each. I wouldn't have had this opportunity without the
JPL. And I can't begin to tell you the other opportunities that have come about
because of the wonderful JPL.
Count me in...I'll go to the Jazzweek site and show my support.
Thanks to all of you!! Jazz Programmers, Jazz Musicians, and so many others
My very best to you all and Thanks so much Ed!! You're the best!
