Hey Bobby,

 

Many thanks for sending us a copy of your new project-which I have been enjoying tremendously.  You've chosen some killer tunes (which you sing with the power and authority of one who knows his craft) as well as some of killer musicians (who provide just the perfect backdrop for each song).  I especially liked "Seven Spanish Angels," "Pepsi Man" (probably my favorite), "Corner of Walk & Don't Walk" (what a great song!) and "Yard Sale."  There's a lot of truth in these songs and you've certainly delivered the goods.

 

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season . . . and thanks again for the cool tunes!

Hi Bobby,
 
This is to inform you, for your records, that we gave air play to some of your material on our show, "Nuttin' but Bluegrass", over WDBX 91.1 FM, on SAturday, January 08, 2005.
 
We played four songs from the "Sagegrass Music", Cut # 01, # 02, # 03, and # 04. This is really great music and we had many favorable comments called in from our listeners here in Southern Illinois.
 
We want to thank you for helping us to have good bluegrass music for our show, we love giving exposure to great material such as this.
 
Thanks again,

Dear Bobby,
I love your CD. I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed it riding along in my car. It's such a great country-bluegrass CD. I love how you did it and the musians are absolutely top notch. You picked great players, some of my favorites. I've meant to write sooner but have fallen behind with lots of deskwork, etc. Hope life is good your way. Your voice is still great, and I think you picked absolutely great songs. Thanks again for sending me the CD. All the best for a happy and great new year, and keep up the true country music. You're the real deal. Pam

Hi Bobby,

Every once in a great while a musical release comes along that has everything. The right songs, a great singer and the right combination of top notch bluegrass pickers.
"Ten Shades of Green" is such a project. Every human emotion is covered in this release, something for everyone. This CD stays in my player, I recommend it highly.
Favorite cuts are "Ten Shades of Green" and "Thinking of Home," these bring back the memories of growing up in SW Virginia and home. Get your copy now, you'll be glad you did.

Keep It Coming,

I am a volunteer host on KAXE-FM in Grand Rapids, Minnesota which has 100,000 watts and two translators covering Norhteaster Minnesota.  I been doing a show since 1976 titled "The Original Bluegrass Show" .  I heard several cuts of your Ten Shades of Green on Gary Henderson bluegrass show.
Is there some way I can get a copy of this for airplay for my program. 
Guaranteed that this CD will be played in the Northland..  We are an independent Public Broadcast Station and not affiliated with anyone else.
Thanks in Advance,

Hey Bobby,

So nice to hear from you!

Yes sir-- your release is a keeper. I'm getting some listener
response from your "SEVEN SPANISH ANGELS" duet with Sonya Isaacs.

What a stellar line-up of pickers, Cleveland, Steffey, Rose, Hess,
and Rhonda, Darrin and Sonya.

Is there any other bio of you on the internet, not counting the liner
notes in your CD?

Any other tracks generating interest from other bluegrass hosts around
the world?  I don't want to overlook anything.  Any track you are
promoting over the others.

Continued success with your release, I am behind you 120%.

Best regards,

Gary

Bobby,
 
Received this from Jordan Records Jan 8,2005 and is it good.  Really like Corner of Walk and Don't Walk and With Tears In My Eyes. 
 
WAGS/WJDJ plays country, indie country, bluegrass/acoustic music live radio with real DJ's and no computer pick playlist, yep just as the notion strikes us.  This gets used on our Saturday afternoon bluegrass show but fits well during the week as well.
 
Thanks for sending the CD. There are a few dinosaurs doing real radio and actually telling the listener what the music is and who plays it..
 
That other guy on your website was pretty good too but I can't get back there without loosing this.  Real computer literate I am.

Bobby,

I am SOOOO glad to hear from you. Cannot get your website to work for me, but have been dying to talk to you. Thanks to Bill for sending me an e-mail.

I really think your album is special. As I mentioned in the forwarded e-mail, "Seven Spanish Angels" was the song that elicited the most response from my listeners. Told Bill I would gladly put it in my top 10. Have been submitting "10 Shades..." I think it could chart too, so may keep submitting it also.

But I love the whole album. At your club, do you do a kind of Bakersfield sound? Or a mix of BG and country? My husband and I are Buck fans, so we appreciate that sound. My husband, John has been playing BG & country music for over 30 years, (guitar), and he thinks your cd is the best thing he has heard in ages!! Bobby, you are gaining fans out here. He plays it for anyone who will listen

Would really appreciate some extra copies for our plege drive. After the response to your cd, I know it will fly out of the studio.

Thanks again for getting back to me so soon. Best of luck with the charting. I will do my best to help you. Send copies to address below.

Sandy

I used to live in North Carolina. Lynwood Lunsford dated my sister when They were teens. I live in South Carolina now   near Greenville. We play bluegrass all the time around here and we listen to 88.7 Wncw. They gave you some good airplay Sat the 14th.Drop them a email and tell them you heard about the airplay. I'd like to come up there sometime to that area, maybe one day.The CD sounds real good...I especially like the ashes of love...real good.Sounds like the kind of music I was raised on.. Bluegrass with a country touch  like the Lost and Found band from Danville Va.
Well, good chattin with ya, like I said I enjoy your music, until later, Lloyd Cornelius

Hello...we feature new disc in a spotlight type promo. 8 tracks if it is strong enough. We do from 11:00am till 7:00pm on Saturdays and 6:00am till 9:00am(all Gospel)on Sundays. So if there are Gospel tracks you might get 11 or 12 spins. It's a fine disc...made the phone ring with "Ashes"..."Pepsi Man" and "Hero Daddy""Ten Shades of Green" is a hit. Powerful. We will keep it in rotation on the BG shows and it will be in the air studio for the jocks to play through the week. You hear BG music all through dayparts here. I come to Cinnci once a year. I have a good friend over in Camp Washington at  QCA Mastering who does a fundraising CD for us. We have a State of the Art recording plant here,I do the BG show because I love the music,and we have National touring acts 6 to 8 times a week. everything from Rhonda Vincent,Del McCoury to Emmylou Harris,Indigo Girls to Hot Tuna and Steve Forbert,Jerry Douglas to Sam Bush. A little of every thing. Great disc....really fine work. Thanks for sending it our way. It'll be getting many spins here for a while to come.

Hello Bobby!
 
Just a quick note to say that as a reporting DJ for Bluegrass Unlimited, I just received my advanced listing for the Top 30 for the July issue and was pleased to see that "Seven Spanish Angels" is debuting at #29.  I've playing the album on my shows and have gotten some interesting responses.  Most say that they are reminded of "old traditional singers", but they can't decide who!  I guess that's good, 'cause that means that you have a style all your own.
 
Anyway, thanks for sending me the "promo" copy, and congrats on making the chart.

Hey Bobby,

I just added Seven Spanish Angels to our New category starting tomorrow.  It'll play once or twice a day.  It's a great track!  I predict moving it into Hot rotation soon where it'll play 4 times a day.

Also sampled some of the other tracks... VERY tasty!  I'll try to work some of them into a slower rotation as well.  Thanks so much for sending it and I wish you mega success with it.

Kevin
