After the "LOVE ALWAYS"cd was produced ,I tried to get it sold in stores.
The first store I tried was Tower Records at Broad and Chestnut sts. in
Phila.This was the same store that my friend,Tom Thornton had sold his
cd,"SAY A PRAYER FOR ME".Tom Thornton arranged and orchestrated all
of the music of my three cds.All of the local Tower Record stores accepted
my cds on consignment.Please see my website for all the stores that sell
I tried different radio stations to get airplay,but it wasn't until I called Tom
McCarthy at 98.1FM that I made my biggest stride.He directed me to Diane
Brown at B101FM,and through her encouragement and the shows she put
me in,I made my greatest progress.She invited me to a meeting with her
organization called "The Association to Preserve Traditional Music." Through
her I met Judy Simms,a promoter of shows(mostly Gospel) and Tim Marshall,
host of the Monday night show at WBZC 88.9FM Radio.On Tim's show,with
cohost,Larry Cotton, two of my songs made the most headway."Under The
Boardwalk"placed ninth in 2003 from requests from callers.Then in 2004,
"Save The Last Dance For Me"placed fifth ,but in 2005,it placed thirteenth.
Recently,Judy Simms has played my Gospel and some of my Christmas songs,
from my cd,"HE FORGIVES",on her Radio show.The name of the show is "THE
LIGHTHOUSE GOSPEL SHOW"airing on WNJC 1360 AM on Saturday evenings
Dominic Conti,the host of The "SOMEWHERE IN TIME "show airing on WBZC
88.9FM has played a number of songs from my cds on Sunday mornings.
Tim Marshall has included me in both issues of his 2004" RHYTHM AND BLUES
SHOWCASE NEWS"magazine and in his Summer/Fall issue of 2005.
I really hope that you will enjoy the music.
