Helping promote Paul/KISS
Shea Grant on 09/30/2006
I hope things are going well for you and your family. Congratulations on the new addition to the family!
I\'ve been trying to get the fans together to email their radio stations and so far I\'m only sure that I\'ve done it. I\'m sending you a copy of the email I sent and the two responses I received.

I hope that you are the person to contact with the question I have. As you may know, Paul Stanley of KISS has a solo CD scheduled for release on Oct. 24th. I would love to hear it on your station, when it becomes available for general release.
He responded very quickly and here is his response:

I\'m looking forward to Paul\'s new album as well. Whether or not we get to play any of it will depend on a few things, but as a KISS fan, I\'m really excited that there\'s something new coming from Paul Stanley. Usually, we get advance copies of things like this to listen to before the actual release date. I\'ll check with my usual promoters to see when they plan on releasing it to radio, and I\'ll check with the interactive folks to see if we might be able to do an On Demand or Sneak Peek online at WTAK.COM. Wish me luck! Thanks for your email.

Not only that, he sent me another email not long after that:
I\'ve gotten in touch with one of the major promoters for classic rock artists to see if he\'s handling this one for possible on-air giveaways, and it turns out that he is! So we should be able to get some copies of Paul\'s album to give away, and possibly even the KISS DVD Boxed Set as well. I\'ve asked for a few autographed ones, we\'ll see if that pans out or not. I thought you might like to know.
I just want to wish you the best, both personally and professionally. You have been an inspiration to me in many ways. Thank you
