So far, APWNN is not doing as well as I hoped it would in terms of radio airplay. This is the do or die period for this song. It desperately needs our help to get listed on radio playlists. In support of this effort, I am kicking off the "APWNN ice bucket challenge". Each person who accepts the challenge needs to request the song at least 10 times on radio stations. You can select any 10 stations in the link below (US radio stations) or you can request the song on radio stations in your own country. After making your request, you can challenge between 1-5 members to do the same. To make it more interesting, I will request the song on 100 stations for anyone who accepts the challenge. I'll go first. After personally requesting the song on several Hot AC stations, I challenge the following MJJC members:

IVY
TYGGER
BIRCHEY
Tricia70
Petrarose

Are you ready for the challenge?

https://sites.google.com/site/urbrhypopradiostations/

--------------------------

Rules:

1. If you accept the challenge, there is no limit to the number of stations you can request to, but the minimum is 10.

2. If you accept the challenge and complete it, post in this thread saying you have done so, then choose 1-5 others who you now challenge. Post their names in this thread. (It is possible you may be challenged more than once.)

3. When you challenge somebody, send them a PM as well in case they have not seen this thread. For example, with the people I PM'ed, I simply titled my message "APWNN Ice Bucket Challenge" and as a message I put "You have been challenged! http://www.mjjcommunity.com/forum/threads/133762-APWNN-The-quot-ice-bucket-challenge-quot". You, of course, can put whatever you'd like. This is just to help those lazy folks ;)

4. If you have been challenged but decided not to take part, you must upload a video of yourself singing along to "A Place With No Name" and post the video in this thread. (Of course, there's no way to tell who has actually done this and who hasn't; this is just all in good fun.)

5. You do not have to wait to be challenged in order to participate. All you need to do is to request the song on at least 10 stations. After doing so, you can challenge others to do the same as indicated in the above guidelines.

(DISCLAIMER: This is in no way an attempt to demean the original cause for the "Ice Bucket Challenge" which is to raise awareness and help fund research for ALS. This is really more of a "karaoke" challenge and has nothing to do with ice or buckets, but since most people are familiar with the "ice bucket challenge" phenomena, we kept the moniker.)

Re: APWNN - The "ice bucket challenge"

This is actually a pretty good idea. But what's happens if you've been challenged, but don't partake? With the Ice Bucket Challenge, you had to donate $100 if you didn't do the challenge. Of course we can't do anything like that here, but there should be something.... take the challenge or.... what?

And I was challenged by tricia70, so I made my requests. It's a shame my local stations aren't on the list, so I just chose 10 random stations.

I now challenge...

Re: APWNN - The "ice bucket challenge"

take the challenge or....record yourself singing an MJ song and post it? LOL Though thats only limited to people with a microphone. :p But those who know me know that I'll totally do it lol

(I also think that those named should be PMed so they know to look in this direction?)

Re: APWNN - The "ice bucket challenge"

Yes. I agree. I PM'ed the people I challenged. And I like your idea... take the challenge or embarrass yourself, LOL. Although there's no way to prove whether somebody took the challenge or not, it's more or less for the fun of it.

Thank you! I will take the challenge.

I will provide a snapshot of the radio requests.

Please give me a moment to contact my U.S. friend. I want to request radio stations that she can confirm are playing APWNN as I do not listen to the radio.

Re: APWNN - The "ice bucket challenge"

Great idea donalb! Can people be challenged more than once or should we keep a sorted list of the people who have already been challenged?

It's in the rules. People can be challenged more than once. The idea of posting names in here is not so we know who has been challenged, but more so we know who hasn't been challenged. So if you don't see somebody's name on the list- hit 'em up!

Re: APWNN - The "ice bucket challenge"

I had to type in the song title and artist for every station I clicked on (mostly urban stations in big cities, like Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, Detroit, LA, NYC and Denver). Is the song too new to be listed?

Re: APWNN - The "ice bucket challenge"

Please note, you do not have to wait to be challenged to join the fun. All you have to do is to request the song on at least 10 radio stations via the link in the first post. Once completed, you can challenge between 1-5 people to do the same as stated in the rules.

Hi Tricia, as I mentioned in the first thread, I will personally request the song on 100 stations for anyone who accepts my challenges. As you accepted my challenge, I have requested the song on 100 stations. On to next one :)

Re: APWNN - The "ice bucket challenge"

Great thread:clapping:

As much I love to know that Michael's songs are played on the radio, but I'm looking forward seeing a few ice bucket videos too from people who didn't take the challenge:D
