Newsgroup Frühead Angel posted this info to

I've been looking through my radio trade magazines in search of want ads and looks what I came across:

FMQB (Friday morning quarterback)<-- popular industry magazine that covers... umm, well, lotsa stuff-

Progressive adult Radio Progress report, April 11th issue. This is basically music directors from stations talking about the hot new records/songs

David Dye, WXPN, Philly
-Moxy Fruvous, You Will Go to the Moon- "The Bee Gees cover and Michigan Militia are really garnering listener reaction!" <-- to yawl in Chicago, Jian was going to tell us about getting the support of this major station before he and Dave started interrupting each other. BTW, in the Radio & Records chart, they have Michigan listed as their #1 track of the past week. EEEEEEEE!! :)

Rita Houston, WFUV, NY
-Moxy Fruvous, Gotta Get a Message to You- "Easily the best cover of the year."

yaayyy, but that's not all folks. April 18th FMQB, the album got a writeup in Progressive adult radio picks-

"This record is simply amazing. After hearing You Will Go to the Moon, we are thoroughly convinced that this is the album that will break Moxy Fruvous wide open. Combining solid pop songs with 'gangsta banjo hip-hop' and 'accordion love songs,' the 13 songs on this album have appeal that could easily cross from Progressive to Modern, and possibly even top 40." then it goes on to give Bottom Line's phone # and their suggested tracks (which are basically half the songs on the album. Pretty cool, also in that section were reviews of the new Skynrd, Son Volt, Depeche Mode and Bela Fleck. Nice company to keep.

'Moon' font

The YWGTTM font is called Harlem Slang Normal. It's a commercial font. (i.e. not free)

You can find info on it here:

Fruhead David Garcia (Donovan) has made his own font that looks a lot like Harlem Slang. He calls it 'Hardly Slang' and you can download it by clicking on this link. (Note: you may have to right-click on the link and select "Save As...")

You can also go to a web page David has set up: This page includes his font and also a YWGTTM winamp skin.
