To all..."Never Again" was featured on BBC Radio 2 today, as Paul Gambaccini's mainstream show announced the opening track during the "Billboard Top 10" run down.

I called the Loop radio in Chicago (97.9) who allegedly sponsored the show here, and requested "Never Again".  I was told by the DJ that she "would see what she could do".  When I pointed out that it was a great CD, and that they had sponsored the show, her answer was, "Yeah, well, things are tough out here now.  Not everything gets played."    This, after their 15th Van Halen song of the day, and while they were playing a Rush song from 1979.  GRRRRRR.

Coolio!  Congrats!

I read an interview with Slash where he was saying that bands are trying to use whatever avenue possible to get their music out there and that some are using video games to premire their music and this may become more common place in the near future.  It would be interesting to hear ASIA music placed in a video game outside of Guitar Hero.  Not sure how ASIA would feel about that though.

Never Again?  I find there to be some irony that the BBC would play a song with this title.

It sure won't be on Radio One.  They play Lily Allen and Robbie Williams.  So Radio Two's as good as it gets.

They play Lily Allen and Robbie Williams on Radio 2 too - is that good or bad?  It is the station of choice in our house - a lot better than it used to be when we were younger - probably because all the baby boomers are listening to it who used to listen to Radio One (although they do still play some good stuff there too - Jo Whiley is best of the bunch IMHO).

Funny that I've never heard anything by Lily Allen, and only one song (once) by Robbie Williams...I know more about his 'neighborhood soccer team' in L.A. than his music! One would think music would cross-over more than it does...

You just have to listen to the right stations -- but they do get airplay here.

There is only one Lily Allen song I can think of. Cannot STAND it. She comes off like the bratty British equivalent of Avril Lavigne to me. They don't sound alike. They just remind me of each other.

Williams is good though. I have one of his CDs. He has a handful of songs that I've either heard on the radio or seen on VH1. But he is nowhere near as big is the U.S. as he appears to be in MANY other parts of the world.
