Jericho: Dedications, Actions, Promotions
RFJ Radio is now taking dedications. In order to process these we will have to stop taking dedications on Wednesday at midnight EST.
Email your dedication to:
You can dedicate a song to a fellow fan or to your favorite cast/crew member, character, or Jericho episode. You can also dedicate to a friend, co worker, family member, sweetheart or prospective sweetheart, and invite them to listen. They might just get hooked on Jericho.
There are some rules-
1. No offensive dedications (although unedited tracks are acceptable, dedications should be kind in spirit)
2. A short message is allowed, but no more than once sentence please.
The dedication show is planned to run Saturday nights starting at 9PM EST and will be replayed at least once thereafter.
ROCK ON JERICHO!
"Call to Action - The Time is Now!
I've compiled a list of things that need to be accomplished on both sides here - network and fanbase. We each hold a responsibility and the time for action is now. Not later, not tomorrow, not in a few days, not in a week.
"So many fans are doing things to promote the DVD and Season 2 quietly behind the scenes. I think its time we start shouting from the rooftops what we are doing to keep up our end of the bargain, maybe that will show CBS the time is past for them to keep up theirs."
"TV executives all over Hollywood must just want to beat Nina Tassler like a gong. The CBS Entertainment chief brought back "Jericho" for a deserved midseason run and admitted that the "Nuts to CBS" campaign by fans was a factor in the show's survival. Now every Comic Book Guy and No. #1 Fan out there is managing a campaign to save their favorite canceled show or fired actor. Aside from "Jericho" and "Cagney and Lacey" back in the '80s, there's seldom any sign that these campaigns are effective. The latest - again aimed in Tassler's direction - is a fan campaign for Jorja Fox as Sara Sidle, a supporting character on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."
