Asked if we support college and non-commercial radio here at Matador, we would have to reply "yes". And, of course, if that means plying college MDs with free goods, tickets and expensive gifts to pump up chart positions, we'd emphatically reply "hell yes!!"
Well, The Ponys are about to put a little more rock action in their support. The Free Yr Radio campaign is putting together a series of in-stores to help in the support of the local college radio stations across the US and next Tuesday April 24th the band are going to be rocking Urban Outfitters (where else?) in Lawrence, KS in support of the very fine radio station KJHK.
