Hey everyone! How was your first day of David Week on FlyFM? For those who missed it, here’s a written recap from Kylie (THANKS KYLIE!! 😀 ) so you’ll have an idea on what happened on air today!
Disclaimer: Kylie was multi-tasking so some details might have been missed out or remembered wrongly – please do correct and update! Most of the statements have been paraphrased and some links have been added if you want to reminisce a bit.
Monday, 15th Sept.
DJ: Hafiz (10 am – 1 pm)
Clip of young David singing “Fallin’” by Alicia Keys
“Crush” was played. (Note: I missed the morning part. Anyone can fill out the gaps?)
Hafiz said that he will be playing David’s AI audition clip. He also mentioned David’s vocal paralysis and one functioning vocal chord. He later mentioned about David’s Top 3 favourite artists (John Mayer, Sara Bareilles, Jason Mraz) and played the MyFox Interview from DC
DJ: Steve (1 pm – 4 pm)
1.00 pm He played David’s AI audition clip – “Waiting On the World to Change” (John Mayer). Steve pointed out that Randy Jackson was doing the backup and played a clip of someone without vocal chords trying to speak. He ended with “What will Arch Angels do without David Archuleta? They would be like.. Click 5……Empty.” (Click 5’s “Empty” played).
A FLY FM David Week promo clip – “We are crushing on David Archuleta” all week this week. Then there was a playback of David himself talking about how he almost did not audition due to his summer job. (Note: need to find that interview clip). It ended with a fan shoutout – “I am an Arch Angel and I love David Archuleta!!”
Steve said that David’s debut album will be out mid-November and that “Crush” is the highly successful debut single from this debut album. He asked, “Do you know when was the 1st time that David perform in public? Stay tuned.”
Steve aired his phone conversation with a fan(Elicia) – she thanked FLY FM for being so awesome to the Arch Angels and mentioned about ODD, to which Steve asked what it was. Of course, “Obsessive David Disorder” – with the tour over, the Arch Angels don’t have any youtube videos to watch so it was “Totally, totally awesome that FLY FM is doing this”.
Steve mentioned about David being in Star Search (similar to AI but they are awarded “stars”) when he was 12 years old and played back a clip where David was sharing about his 1st public performance (note: need interview source) – “…in a restaurant….singing “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus” or something like that ..”. (Then Jason Mraz “I’m Yours” came on).
Steve aired his phone conversation with Jolene – “…so happy about David Week and “Crush” playing every day.” Steve said “it is because you want to listen to it.” Jolene thanked FLY FM again – “we appreciate it very much!” and Steve said, “Thanks for supporting us!” The Hollywood audition clips will be coming up shortly.
Steve aired the Hollywood audition clips:-
“Crazy“ – Just the first few lines – (Note: We never ever had the AI’s version so this must be from the Utah Interview Rounds)
“Heaven” – Wooott!!!He played the whole thing!! Right from David talking before he sang (“I’m just going to tell the judges and make them understand.”) up to the judges’ comments and him saying about that tingly feeling (“3 yes-es”). Just to hear “Heaven” and Simon’s comments again… made me all tingly!!! Check it out here and take a trip down memory lane.
Heaven – Hollywood Week
Steve reminded us to request for David’s song on the MUST HAVE MUSIC webpage – (Note: Do this during the program – most effective! Steve might call you!)
We can also call him at 603-77241144 to “profess your love for David Archuleta.” (Note: I love FLY FM! So guys, CALLLLLLLL!!!! And I also mean “GUYS”, we need to hear from the male fans. John, please lead the pack )
FLY FM David Week promo clip with a playback of David saying, “It’s pretty weird hearing people call me ‘Archie’…..they call me ‘Archie’ to distinguish the 2 Davids….you can call me Archie if you want…” (Note: need the interview clip) and ended with the same fan shoutout, “I am an Arch Angel and I love David Archuleta!”
Extra update from elicia : They also did a promo snippet at around 9.30pm – an excerpt from his interview talking about his dad keeping him grounded and another fan shoutout! Looks like itsDavid Archuleta on FlyFM 24 hours this week haha! I think they must have monitored a listener surge since they debuted Crush! And the DJs must all have been Archuletafied by now lol.
Yeap,that’s it for Day 1 folks!
I have recorded a short clip (about 3 mins) from what I was able to catch today but I’m still trying to figure out how to post the clip here as it’s not in the required format. Will work on it and post it up when I can!
Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow and remember to thank the folks over at FlyFM for doing this because it sure needed some work and its great promotion for David!Its certainly a David lovefest there!
Do email or pass to me any updates/written recap you’ll have for the rest of the week as well!
