Blake Lewis checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@blakelewis) on Wednesday (May 14), where the ‘American Idol’ season six runner-up voiced his frustrations with getting radio play of his debut album ‘Audio Day Dream’. Lewis writes:
So I had been doing the whole radio promo tours and let me tell ya. I’ve never really been a fan of the radio, but always wanted to be a radio DJ. ‘Strange?’ You say. Trying to get them to play my jam has been so grueling. Don’t get me wrong, I loved being apart of ‘American Idol’ and all, but if I have to talk to one more DJ that doesn’t really care about my music and wants to know what Simon Cowell or Sanjaya is like, I’m gonna poo my pants. What happened to DJs playing music that provokes emotion? Or even music they like. I’ve talked to most of them and they just do what the next do. There is hope I feel. Still some magic is running through the air. A couple amazing singer/songwriters and producers are fighting there way through the waves, hoping to see the shore, as am I.
