Let's Tell the UK About RCPM
Roger, PH, Jim, Nick and Jason are busy making preparations for their first ever journey across the Atlantic for a two-week tour of the UK. We know there are several of you planning on joining the band on their adventure and we're all looking forward to seeing many familiar faces in some unfamiliar settings.
But the band is also looking forward to sharing the Peacemaker experience with an entirely new set of fans, many of whom have never seen and might not be as familiar with RCPM as their Yankee counterparts. To get people in the UK ready for some kick ass Americana rock-n-roll, we'd like to expose more people over there to Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers. To do that, we need the RCPM vets to give our new UK friends an idea of what they're about to see.
The band would be most grateful if everyone would take a few minutes and request RCPM on UK radio. Whether you live in London or Phoenix, we'd like everyone to log in to as many websites as you can and make a request. And if you have time, find a message board to talk about why you love RCPM so much, what UK fans can expect when they go to a show, or even why learning key words such as ¡Salúd! may be important.
Our friend Kat has compiled a list of stations and websites that you can check out and make requests. A big gracias to her for taking the time to compile this list.
