This is to all PD's and radio announcers on Jazzproglist. It's a sad day in radio promotions and for indie artists when Dr. Jazz singles out an artist for not using his services of $2500.00 however, $3000.00 was quoted at first for the promoting of my nu Cd, WAS OUT JAZZ ZONE MAD on Ropeadope records. Prior to my deciding not to engage in his service, he quoted the following about my Nu Cd: "Great Project" and "Shit Man...Great Stuff!! Not Finished Listening. More Tomorrow" ( see graphics below) This morning he came back with this quote, "4 weeks, 4 stations. This is the result of no radio promotion!"
-Dr. He also corrected me on the 3000.00 he wanted and said this," $2500 :)"
His whole mood changed when I told him I needed the money for recording and not radio promo. It was so not cool of him to be this petty and unprofessional. As an indie artist, I feel like it is my obligation to speak out on being treated in this way from a radio promoter. I have used radio promoters in the past who are on Jazzproglist and have never had a situation like this. I thank the radio PD's and announcers who are spinnin' my music from Ropeadope Records as I made the calls this time myself.
