Music Row Magazine Great Review - August 3, 2012

DISClaimer Single Reviews Robert K. Oermann • August 3, 2011 It’s nice to know that country hasn’t forgotten its sense of humor. Reckless Kelly’s “Good Luck & True Love” made me smile because of its cleverness. Sam Roark found me grinning from ear to ear with her merry “Check Out Girl.” Buddy Jewell had me openly chuckling from his performance of “Jesus, Elvis & Me.” And, trust me, you have GOT to listen to “No Beer Here” by Amy Ames. It is a complete hoot. AMY AMES/No Beer Here Writer: Amy Ames; Producer: Eddie Hedges; Publisher: Amy Ames/Eddie Hedges, BMI; Grand Channel (CDX) (http://www.amyames.com/) —This toe tapper has zippy fiddling, dandy banjo plunking and hilarious backup men practically burping their lines. The whole thing is so goofy and zany that it doesn’t even matter that she can just barely sing. Must be heard to be believed. the PDF of the magazine article is attached.

Stuart Cameron Talks Amy Ames - May 30, 2012

Stuart Cameron Talks Amy Ames on her 6th song to Chart at The Hotdisc Top 40    www.hotdisc.net/charts1.htm

You never know what you are going to get with Amy. Her
latest track is 3 Boyfriends which takes you on an
interesting journey! There is a good twist here in the
storyline so prepare to be offended first and then, when
you get the true meaning of the song you will allow yourself
a wry smile.
Her new album will be out soon and American Idol’s Tony
Pulizzi has had a big influence on it. We look forward
to it.

Amy's song, 3 Boyfriends, charts at No. 38 on The Hotdisc Top 40 at www.hotdisc.net/charts1.htm making it th 6th song to hit the top 40 from her last album.  No Beer Here was the first song to place at No. 11 in the US.  Bedroom Blues became a line dance sensation in Europe at No. 11.  Holy Balls surprised us all at No. 1 for nobody thought it would get played on the radio due to the ball pun in it.  Santa's Littlest Elf jumped to No. 5 during the holidays and Alaska crept in last month at No. 39.  To check out the video for "3 Boyfriends," go to: http://youtu.be/jWsRKrm7Gzs  Amy's next album is scheduled to be released out of Nashville June 17th.

Note from Amy: I'm asking my supporters to please send a thank-you card to this radio station.  It is very difficult to get a song on the radio, and this may be the first (and hopefully not the last) song about Autism.  May this song pave the way for more Autism awareness.  Thank you.

Hi Amy,

Thank you for including us! I have forwarded your email to all of our SC
autism email lists. Hopefully that will generate some calls in to more
local radio stations!

Special Events Coordinator, Strides for Autism
Project Coordinator, "All Are Welcome"

I have sent out emails to all of the applicable stations here in Hawaii.  We actually have a talk scheduled with a radio station this Sunday the 6th at 9 PST, not a mainstream one, more of a talk show but we will definitely bring it up.  We would love it if we could get a station here to promote autism during the holidays as well.  ………..Jessica Wong-Sumida

I graduated high school with a guy that works for KIII TV in a non t.v. capacity in Corpus.  I will see what contacts he might have and see if we can help get your songs played.  I am also following Monte from the radio station C101 (Rock-n-roll station) in Corpus.  I will direct message him on twitter and see if he has any contacts as well as spread the word on facebook and twitter.  My oldest sister and her family actually live down in McAllen so I will see if she knows of anyone down there involved with any of the stations…….. Robert Hutchins......Southern Texas

I am posting your email below on the Autism Society of America – Dayton Chapter” website and will also send the information out via our email distribution list which contains approximately 2300 emails.........Kelli Cook, Region 10 - State Support Team

We will send this out in our enewsletter to let people across Iowa know.  Thanks for sending it to us......Kris Steinmetz  Autism Society of Iowa

Santa's Littlest Elf has Autism goes Gobal - October 20, 2011

The song, “Santa’s Littlest Elf has Autism,” by Amy Ames and James Martinez will be going out to over 2,600 radio stations around the world.  Amy is on a mission to raise monies for local Autism/Asperger’s groups with CD sales and radio airplays of the song.

Kacey Jones from Radio Mavens will do a special Christmas promotion to include 6 weeks of promotion between Nov. 21st and Dec. 25th.  She will also send out two e-flyer/press releases to the entire database (of all genres of music) which numbers over 10,000.      

Then Airplay Specialists will call 300 of the 2,600 stations that received the song, “Santa’s Littlest Elf (has Autism) on CDX 535, Song Number 20, beginning Nov. 28th until Dec. 23rd.  There will be some radio stations in your area that will not get called, but will receive the song on CDX535. 

I’m asking if you can get out the message that some of the radio stations in your area will get the CD, but not be told about the song.  If radio stations get calls from their listeners explaining that the message of the song is to promote Autism, they may be inspired to play it.  Also, if listeners call in and request the song to be played, they will play it. 

Please relay the message to have friends, family and parents of Autistic children call the radio stations and request the song, “Santa’s Littlest Elf has Autism.”

To view the song, “Santa’s Littlest Elf has Autism,” on YouTube go to:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwIX4d2vD3E&feature=colike

This Christmas the story about “Santa’s Littlest Elf has Autism” is going around the world bringing awareness of Autism for the holidays.  My son and I would really appreciate your help in getting out the message. 

Thank you,

Amy Ames and James
