Well the launch went well. Sir Terry was fabulous and said a lot of very encouraging things (film to follow). Aled Jones came along and met all the songwriters and singers.
FTW and the wonderful Anthony Head sang fantastically well http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKCZNZlTrvI
A couple of journalists interviewed Terry and Anthony, but more than all of that, there was real happiness, a feeling of achievement.
We had taken this from "One of my ideas" to fruition where the songs were performed for the first time. I think I can safely say that the four songwriters have had an experience beyond what they expected.
Now we call upon you all. We don't know if we will get national radio play, so we need to spread the word through the internet.
If you could possibly take this link www.oldiecomposers.com and paste it into an email and send it to everyone in your address book. and ask them to do the same. If you could ask your boss if you could put it on your work intranet. If you can tweet about it or put it on your Facebook page please ask everyone to share it.
I think all of these songs are fabulous and deserve airplay, but more importantly, by downloading them, people will help Barnardos, who help the most disadvantaged children in this country.
I know money is tight for everyone at the moment, you don't need to spend a lot of money on this... just a little bit of time, to spread the word.
Having just heard that a nine year old girl has gone viral with her blog, I feel the older generation should show that we can do it too!!
Thank you very much
