Album of the Week in Croatia

Postby tomsakic » Tue Jan 11, 2005 12:24 pm

Dear Heather is from yesterday "album of the week" on the Open Radio in Croatia. It's most listen to national radio station specialized for foreign pop music. Dear Heather was the best-selling Sony release in November in Croatia, and now it's the best-selling along with Destiny's Child and Britney Spears. The promotion is slow but after all good; only now the album is chosed as album of the week (because the Sony dealer decided to promote album on other radio station originally; of course nothing happened. Also they wrongly decided to release Go No More A-Roving as the single without any impact: now The Letters are going to be pressed for radio stations in few days. Also, for Christmas days the poster for buses was printed, containing Dear Heather art cover beside Britney Spears and Destiny's Child; now the new poster is printed for the record stores, with Dear Heather, Britney, Destiny's Child and Anastacia, titled "best-selling releases from Sony in Croatia"). Maybe something happens now: In My Secret Life was chosen as single of the week in Sptember 2001, and 2 weeks later Ten New Songs were album of the week. The result was the most wide known Leonard's song after Suzanne, and the #1 place at radio and TV list by people's vote for couple of month and holding in Top Ten until February 2002.


For those interested, single of the week is Get Right by Jennifer Lopez.

That's quite the juxtaposition of artists in the Sony campaign! :wink:

Hooray for Leonard's Dear Heather being named album of the week!
"Why music?" "Why breathing?"

The Letters are getting nice airplay time. It was delight to hear L and Sharon in coffee bar last Sunday. It's much different experience than when you listen it on your equipment. I was having same experience with I'm Your Man adn TNS songs, the sound through radio airing gets somehow deeper.
