I´m wondering, if I should send her "By your side" single, which I have twice, to the biggest radiostation in Germany. But I´m not sure, if it´s worth it or a bit too strange. Have you done something like this before? Or what do you think about that? What can we do? Everyone´s opinion is needed!
I like the idea of sending singles to radio stations! Capitol Records wanted nothing to do with The Beatles, till American DJs started playing "I Want to Hold Your Hand" of their own accord and the public started clamoring for more. And for a more relevant example, think of how Roxette first got huge in the States: An American student went home from a stay in Sweden enamored with the band, requested "The Look" at a local radio station, and the rest is history.
I think the best thing to do is to request her songs at local radio stations. Even better, if you know someone in the radio scene, get them to listen to her material (maybe give them one of her singles or whatnot). Does MTV Europe (and the other local MTV stations such as MTV Portugal) have any TRL-type shows? That might be another avenue to pursue... I think stations have to pay a "tax" to the record company, as broadcasting a song means that a listener could theoretically tape the broadcast, effectively acquiring a copy of the song without paying for it. One would think the record companies would welcome the free publicity (after all, who would choose a poorly taped radio broadcast over a pristine authentic copy of the single on CD?), but not in this mad world we live in I think sending them the single could still work. I mean, the idea is to make them aware of her music. A note like "hey, this is a great song I'd love to hear on your show..." would be great. They'll be aware of what (if any) legal steps they'd need to take to make it possible for them to broadcast it. Or maybe it'd be quicker (and cheaper) to send them links to her videos online. I don't think I'd have much luck with that here in Venezuela, because local stations favor latin music over all other styles (don't get me started...), but in Europe it might succeed.
