So, the radio station in Raleigh NC, WQDR 94.7 FM is a monster country station. They have a show called QDR Homegrown Country and it features local NC talent frpm writers and bands and solo artists. Radio ready production with songs from artists and songwriters.

On a whim, I sent them 3 songs on Monday, and today, I got an email from the show's director and host that one of the three I sent to them will be in the line up for this Sunday night's program. (that was quick!!)

That song is: Dust On The Floor

Some of you may remember it from several years ago. For those who have not heard it, there's the link.

Also.... the station does live streaming on the internet so you an listen to this live from their website.

Show starts at 9PM eastern, you can listen live at this link>>> http://www.947qdr.com/

Guitarhacker,

First off, the song is sweet--crisp, clean on the production, and a vocal that resonates. Killer tune! Congrats on the airplay. Very well deserved.

Second, I think it's awesome that your local station does something like this. There's so much great music out there that deserves a wider audience . . . like this one. The U.K. seems to do this more regularly, using air time to spotlight local artists and songs. Kudos to WQDR for doing this. More stations should do the same.

Lastly, I lived in North Raleigh for 8 years in the 90's. Great town. Still have family there. Assuming that's where you're at now--was always sorry to have to leave it.

My best to you,

Deej

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Congratulations Herb. That's a good song. A song I remember being from what I thought was a brick and mortar recording studio when I first heard it... wink

DJ... if you lived here you know QDR is a powerhouse station... huge coverage area.

Jim, Write a Hit Country Song and Whiskey for Breakfast.

Thanks everyone else for your kind words. The host is a writer with some nice credits and cuts. Not sure if they will play the other songs on another show, but I'm sure I will be finding out.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
