The Bear (Ottawa Radio) has picked "8th Wonder" as one of the five finalists for The Radio Star National Songwriting Competition - Ottawa.That means my song is now posted on their website (www.thebear.fm). Scroll down to the bottom of the main page and you'll find the banner to click on to take you to voting/listening page. I believe the system is set to accept one vote per computer per day. Voting runs until 9 a.m. on Monday, January 21st. We will announce the winning songwriter in the 4 p.m. hour of the same day. BEAR listeners will also hear my song on air. Each song will be featured one day next week with a play in the 9 p.m. hour with Dylan Black and another play in the 11 p.m. hour on Local Licks. Scott Lear will feature a 40 second excerpt from the song during middays.
Here is the schedule for next week:
Monday, January 14 - 8th Wonder - Lindsay Ferguson Tuesday, January 15 - Find Me - Bluestone (Sandy Hunter) Wednesday, January 16 - String Of Pearls - Darius Doddridge and Rodney Doddridge Thursday, January 17 - Vagabond - Frank Beecher Friday, January 18 - When The Summer Ends - The Watters Brothers Rebellion
If I win this section of the contest it means I will go on to Toronto's Canadian Music Week in March with all the other finalists from other regions in Canada... I'm not sure how many other finalists there will be, but it would be nice to get there!!!
Thanks a lot for your support!!! Lindsay
