BS Your Way To Great Ideas: That's Brainstorming 101
By: Larry Daniels, Bob Richards, and Jay McCarthy's
Brainstorming = Creativity. There's no question that unique ideas come from thinking 'out
of the box' and that's one of the big benefits of brainstorming. You see, it's easy to
repeat a contest, a stunt, sweepers, strategies and nearly anything else that involves
on-air content in radio; but repeating and repeating and repeating can get old to your

Increase Fan Base
We will need everyone's help on this VERY IMPORTANT PROJECT.
As most of you already know, Jaime has moved to Dallas, Texas, under new management,
"Rendleman Management Group, Inc." (with Marty Rendleman President who was LeAnn
Rimes Manager for 3 years when she first got started) she will also be performing 5 times
per week at the biggest Dancehall/Night Club in the Dallas, Texas area. Jaime has finally
gotten a few good breaks and is headed in the right direction.
We now have to concentrate on building her "FAN BASE",to
show the Major Recording Companies that she has a huge following. Please join her mailing list and Fan Club - it
does not cost you anything! Just go to her web site at www.jaimebeaver.com, click on "Contacts"
at the top of the page, click Join My Mailing List, fill out the form and submit. In the
future we will be putting out a monthly News Letter via the Internet to her fans. The
music business is changing very fast thanks to the Internet and now Indie artist like
Jaime can get the attention of Nashville Executive's without even leaving the house so to
speak. What are they (Nashville) looking for?
1. Does the artist have a large fan base?
2. Is the artist getting lots of radio airplay, does not matter if it's overseas or in the
3. How is the artist doing on the International Radio Charts based on airplay.
4. Does the artist have a web site? How many people go to the web site, daily, monthly or
yearly? Here they are talking # of hits the web site is getting, over 50,000 people have
gone to Jaime's site.
5. Is the artist selling lots of CD's via the stores and/or downloads over the internet.
Fans can now download Jaime's music (by song) at the WAL-MART & BEST BUY online music
6. Where has the artist performed in the past and where is the artist going to be
performing in the future?
7. Who is the Management Team behind the artist?
8. What kind of media coverage is the artist getting, TV, Radio, Newspaper, Magazine,
9. What are they (fans & people in the music business) saying about the artist? (
Reviews....see her web site).
10. Is the artist really talented? Does the artist have the looks & personality? Does
the artist have good stage presents? Is the artist totally committed to her/his career?
The list goes on & on, but I think you get the picture. Jaime needs a big "Fan
Base" and we need to keep Jaime's name out there all of the time and in every
positive way we can. We must show Nashville that Jaime is popular and she has what it
takes to make it at the Major Recording Artist Level. Can we depend on you?

Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan
When I first met Misty
Morgan we were both pianists and singers. Well, to be honest, she was actually the singer,
and I was more of a songwriter.
After we had been working together a while natural selection took over, and she became the
lead piano player and I became the backup rhythm and bass guy.
Her singing voice is so smooth and full of nuances and depth, we developed a Beauty
and the Beast style of duet singing. Of course I was the beast.
Besides being a great at the keyboards, she has always been my favorite singer. Somehow,
shes never been as thrilled with her own singing as the rest of us are.
Misty released several solo singles in the 1960s on our own labels. She recorded
under the names Jacqueline Hyde and Maryanne Mail. at least two of the cuts were
exceptionally good, but they never got much airplay on our little label.
Jump ahead a bunch of years and you see us in a recording studio in Muscle Shoals,
Alabama, where were recording some duets and the great country/jazz fiddle player
Vassar Clements is there. We decide to do a couple of things featuring Misty and Vassar.
First they do an instrumental, Georgia on My Mind, which just gets them warmed
Then Misty picks out a bluesy torch song I wrote called Still Comin Down from
You. The performance is a classic.
I love it! Misty has a little smile when she hears it. Im sure she likes it too,
although she probably wont come right out and say so.
Listen to the clip: http://www.kokosuniverse.com/jm/wma/still_comin_down.htm
For a while I belonged to The International Platform
a speakers' organization, and this was my billing...
"Professor Blanchard lectures on Dynamic Ignorance."
With a little professional help, I got over it.
