Yes I'm delighted too at some well deserved recognition at last. I hope the sales now and long term into the future will also reflect the same acknowledgement and respect Bruce's way and to Ron Bankley for making it happen.

Bruce may have just given some bare bones of information to us and I know he is very modest about his skills. In fact he may not even have realised himself one fact but I'll put things into perspective because there are others of us who are continually aware of radio plays worldwide or watching trends and appreciating broadcast skills and presenters who really KNOW their music and respect musicianship.

There is not ONE track on Matters Of The Heart that HASN'T received airplay multiple times.   

THAT is phenomenal and very rare.

Two words that sum up Bruce Murdoch too - though I guess many people could add a few more !   LOL

Jeri, sorry you're unable to hear the song in full.

I've the page up now, whole track's played right through without a hitch. There's a short silence at the start of each track as it loads, quite normal for Myspace. There've been loadsa problems in there recently 'cos of new music players they've installed but it's being corrected, slowly. You should be able to view and hear Myspace clearly, regardless of whether you're a member or not. Anyone else having the same thing happen when they load the page?

Meantime, I'm glad you're hearing the music clearly on the main site.(all power to 'old dude' for that.)

Here we have an opportunity like never before. I maybe stereo typing(sp.) but most Mudcatters I think are from the era of 78's and 45. In those day's we waited to hear what the radio stations would introduce us to, and many of time, it was great folk and rock and roll. Today we don't have to wait for the radio to play the music (though still very important.)for we have the technology at our finger tips(and if I knew how I would underline FINGER TIPS.) to make it heard around the world in minutes.
What I see in both worlds (the old/new)is that the past method of radio stations is not the complete answer any more. Who here has purchased a c/d of Bruce Murdoch "Matter of The Heart" through the radio media? That is an important question. I believe that in today's marketing we should promote Bruce as much as possible through My Space, You Tube, MSN, e-mail,Face book,Google, FireFox and so on.
Like it or not, the Internet has become a very important way of connecting.
Bruce has just told us that his songs are being played on radio stations in the US, Canada, Germany, England, Australia and New Zealand. How did this happen so fast? My God, we even think it is slow. Most of the answers to this are here on mudcat.
Five years ago I didn't know Sandy in Sydney,Amos,John in Scotland, Sakri in Iceland (sp.) Little Hawk, Bee and the list goes. Sorry for all the mis spelling of Handles.,
Hay!! as an example, check out this guy on My space. A great writer an just a kid in our (my) view starting out. If I can get him up next summer at our Festival it is a must. (JOE PUG)
Good Night.

Hi Kids: 'Tis a strange world in terms of music distribution these days. Having worked for PolyGram in the era of Saturday Night Fever, Village People, etc. I can tell you that the best minds in the world are scratching their heads as to where this is all going.

Bruce has many friends around the world that would like to see him hit the big time and get all the recognition that goes with it. He deserves that. However, the decision, the quarterbacking of this, should still be under Mr. B's control. Too many cooks spoil the broth. If we all "do our part" to "help" we might actually do more harm than good.

I have taken it upon myself to help Bruce in terms of Marketing as this is my field. What I know is "safe"; eg. in the past few days, I've made contact with a DJ for Radio Caroline via MySpace. I then emailed Bruce's MySpace page to him so that he is made aware of Bruce's existence. I then emailed the DJ's MySpace to Bruce to let him know what I was doing. DID I SUGGEST THAT HE PLAY SOME MotH? NO. Why? Because pushing at that sensitive point would ANNOY the DJ. The mission was accomplished. Radio Caroline is now aware of Bruce. And Bruce is aware that RC knows him.
This could be followed up by a CD being sent to Radio Caroline(which goes 'round the world). SO WHAT'S NEXT? Is there a budget for this? Is that part of what Bruce is doing on his own to promote the CD? NO. It is only an opportunity that MIGHT be explored SHOULD BRUCE WANT TO DO IT. You are building a relationship at this point.
The danger here is replication. What if some of you through pure chance did the SAME thing? Made the same contact? The receiver starts to think "what kind of ORGANIZATION does this Bruce guy have?" They are tripping over themselves. THEY ARE AMATEURS.

This is not good as it interferes with a project that has had valuable time and money being invested. Let's not kill it.

I THINK the new direction of music distribution will be a blend between CD's and the new media.What's the IDEAL blend? I don't know... The Internet could work for or against your efforts depending upon how it is orchestrated. But, "I did a good thing" you might be thinking, or, "hey, I know all about advertising, I watch T.V. and my brother-in-law works for an agency, yada, yada, yada,"

Caution friends, caution. Right now, Bruce needs all the help he can get. Let's do it right...

COMMUNICATION through a central point is the key, so that we don't trip over ourselves. It's Mr. BM's call...

So, Bruce, besides purchasing your CD, and besides visiting your Internet website, your YouTube videos and your MySpace page, what is it that you want us to do?

I guess the main point of Bob Ryszkiewicz's 02 Oct 08 - 11:00 AM
post is that regardless of how it's done and regardless of how well meaning they are, folks shouldn't be contacting djs, radio stations etc about your music without your prior knowledge, consent, and approval, right?

But to expand on Bob's comments about the need for orchestration and the need to have a central point of contact, Bruce, should folks get in touch with you if we any ideas regarding djs or radio stations who may be interested in your music? Or have you appointed a business manager or agent who folks should contact and that person would then contact you?

Hi Kids: I am not sure myself what BM wants to do, or if he even wants people to help. We have briefly discussed doing some Marketing when we last spoke, but nothing was solidified.

When I was with PolyGram, the A&R guy was CONSTANTLY on the phone, working to get airplay for our latest releases...

Anything that I have done so far is in the way of safe and simple introductions to Bruce's music via emails, no actual pushing...That way, I don't think that I have interfered with anything Bruce may be doing. It's kinda like, "have you heard this guy?" stuff, and not directly asking for airplay as if I was Bruce's Representative, which I'm not..

I have my own projects that I've invested considerable time and money on, so my focus is there. I'm just giving an old friend a helping hand whenever I can.

I prefer to keep going as a guest, as I have much to do over here..

The most logical thing to do, I think, is to ask Bruce if he wants help. That we are there for him if he needs help. Then to keep him informed of any actions that we do...

Hi, all. Thank you for your questions, and yes I do need help, but . . . .

FACT: CDs are dead as a way to make cash unless one has a distribution already set up. The DJs who have played songs were people I located through a DJ site. What I have found is that although many of the DJs who haven't played anything from MotH would, but an offer to

1) listen to Youtube or Myspace to see if they'd be interested and with a simple e-mail I'd send the CD was largely ignored other than by about eight DJs in addition to ones playing songs from it already

2) I conclude from that that

   a) they do not like it
   b) they didn't read the offer
   c) they didn't read the message

I know better for example than to send a CD to a folk show that has never played a song with electric guitars in it. To waht effect? To give someone a CD that costs $10 after recording, production, replication and mailing charges? No way.

Many people including some on this thread have been a great help. I mean a GREAT help. But to maybe elaborate on something Bob said, the music world has changed. The people in it know they need to sell CDs from the stage, but basically getting to the stage requires an agent, and as yet I have none. Also, the DJ site I go to has been wonderful, but they don't need me bugging them all the time. I have kept track of the DJs who DID play stuff, and it goes in the 'book' so I know who to send to when I get the next CD done. (And for them it will be two weeks before anyone else because they were kind to me in the first place. Hell, not every response is positive. Got one from a person who said, "I really like your music but I'm not looking for material to play just now." Yeah. Right.

I think a few things:

1) Many people do NOT like the music. I understand that and am cool with it

2) Some don't do their homework. That's life, but it's now October and the CDs are $20 each for anyone on God's Earth. Period. Sounds like hardball, and some of you will think that's a stupid thing to do. So be it. But that's the way it is.

Also, some folks may want to cut loose from me at this point because I intend to put a song on Youtube that will incur the wrath of many folks and will never get played on radio. It contains the stanza

"Begone, begone you neocons
Take these billionaires
I have watched you from the moment of my birth;
And I have seen the riches that
You corporate sons of bitches have
Stolen from the children of this Earth."

I expect real flak from that, but IMO it's gotta be done. That will take me a month or so I expect. I do not at this point know what the repercussions will be from that. None if no one listens to it. Lots if people do. It's not about publicity, because the folks that song is going to try to go up against are lots 'bigger' than I'm ever gonna be. But I'd feel like cheap shit if I ignored the world economic situation and just pretended it didn't exist or that those bastards do not have an agenda. Besides, I have fought tougher guys than them and lost!

For a while I received more help than I could use. Got to the point I couldn't keep up with what was happening because well-meaning people with great ideas wanted to go ahead with them and I was curt saying yes or no, because my e-mail volume was about fifty to seventy per day, and at least a dozen were things that required lengthy responses. That was when I asked the Web Mistress of Myspace to shut it down. I simply had too much to get done in a basic hour or two I had available on computer. My apologies to anyone who felt the least slighted.

I need a day off. This has been over nines months for me and the numerous days and nights with just a few hours sleep have caught up with me. Talk later.

Thank all of you for your words of encouragement, offers to help, and great suggestions.

Bruce

Hi Kids: This I'll call, "The Situation"...7,000,000 bands on MySpace and counting. 10 hours of
video PER SECOND being uploaded to YouTube. 700 Radio Stations required to even make a dent in what's required for an artist to get noticed after sending out a CD. Estimated 100,000,000 iPods sold as at 4-6 months ago. Negotiations under way re: DRM music, so that mp3's can be played on devices other than iPods...Zune breaking it's way into the marketplace. CD sales across the board? Questionable. Lehman Brothers & Wall Street. It's just like the old west out there right now, wild n' wooley...

Read Chris Anderson's(Editor-in-Chief WIRED Magazine's} "The Long Tail" in which he outlines the new paradigm in Music Distribution.

So how do you play this here game partner? It's an email by email, phone call by phone call battle where an artist must FIND his audience. The good news is that the audience CAN be found.

Requirements? Time & Money & Persistence...Ya wanna play?
