I just felt like sharing the utter joy and ego-boost I had today when my band, Laden Swallow, was played on the local "modern rock" radio station's local band spotlight set. We dropped off our CD on Friday and a few fans emailed requests into the station last week. I thought that we would get played, but I didn't expect us to be the first song of the show. It was an awesome feeling. The funny part was when the CD player messed up about half way through the song (my guess is the DJ hit the wrong stop button while cueing up the next song). There were about 5 seconds of dead air before the DJ recovered and read one girl's email over the air and restarted the song. So we kinda got 1.5 plays today. This was my first time hearing myself on commercial radio. I didn't think it would be this cool. Anybody else have any stories about their first "on-air" moment?
