We've had another bit of good luck! I had sent an MP3 of "Texas Blues" from our upcoming new Atlas Records release Still Live as Hell to our pal the BMan at WTUE 104.7 to promote our July 23 Play it Forward Benefit show w/ the BlueBirds and Kenny Wayne Sheppard (and a big thanks to BMan and WTUE for helping us have such a great show). Well, here's where the good news comes in -- my friends who tune in WTUE tell me they've heard "Texas Blues" played a few times since then! If you're a WTUE listener (and I heartily suggest you should be), I'd like to ask that you contact the BMan to thank him for the play, too (and maybe see if he'll play it some more).

John "The BMAN" Beaulieu says
Call the Request Line at (937) 457-ROCK and put up with my attitude, or Email me anytime, Bman@wtue.com

Their goal is to provide unsigned/independent blues rock and rock artists with 24/7/365 airplay, support, and promotion. Since September 2007, the project includes the free bimonthly PDF magazine Blues Rocks the World.

Today, the station has a monthly listenership of over 6,000 hours in nearly 120 countries. Mostly listened to in: the United States (over 65%), Canada, France, Germany, U.K., Australia, and Italy.

Every song submitted by a Sonicbids member, if selected, is guaranteed to have a minimum of 100 airplays - 10 times more than the "good old" FM stations offer at best! That's what may be called REAL EXPOSURE!

"Up to My Neck in the Blues", and "Last Call" were selected!
