FlyFM’s David Week – Recap Day 2!! (A BIG and special thanks to kylie again for doing this!!)
Tuesday, 16th Sept
DJ: Adam Boy (10am – 1pm)
Adam Boy was shouting out some Archie terms and got somewhat exasperated at the end, HILARIOUS”…ODD, Archie, Arch Angel, Archufied, …..Banafied….I don’t know if I made the last one up!” (Note: I was rolling on the floor laughing. They are certainly being Archified for sure!!!!!!!!). He then played an interview clip of David talking about Cook’s AI win …”it’s so right for him to win…he’s amazing…he understood what he’s doing musically…” (Note: need interview link here). Adam finished it off by saying that David Archuleta is “humble as ever. Love this guy!!”
Adam played one of his favorite David’s AI performance, “Stand By Me” and the judges’ comments. (Note: No David introduction to the song – the “singing to his dog or something like that” – just the song and judges’ comments. – IMO, the turnaround performance since being labeled “ballad-boy”. Boo to SC for nitpicking and Yay for Randy declaring David as the best vocalist standing among the Top 4. Might I add, rousing, rousing, rousing applause for David and I’m sure it’s due to “all you beautiful girls”! Yes! )
Stand By Me
Woooaahhh, this video clip has over 1.7mil views!
Right after the song, David was heard talking about school and time for the AI stuff (Note: need interview source). Followed by the cute fan shoutout – “I am an Arch Angel and I love David Archuleta!” (Note: All Angels please practice this fan cry – we will do this in unison in front of David when he gets here.)
The David Archuleta Week promo clip came on followed by David talking about his younger days and the same fan shoutout. (Note: So sorry, I didn’t catch what David was saying. Need the interview source.)
DJ: Steve (1 pm – 4pm)
Steve said he will play one of David’s AI performance which was deemed by the judges as his best performance. Stay tuned.
Steve played the AI intro video clip from Shop Around where the now famous jingle and phrase came from -“What a feeling!” and “oooh…i’m gettin’ shaky just thinkin’ about it!”. The clip also included flashback to his San Diego audition and Hollywood rounds. (Note: He didn’t play David singing Shop Around).
Steve aired a phone conversation of a fan correcting him about CRUSH being David’s best performance or something like that (Note: Sorry, I didn’t spot this mistake earlier on. Can anyone explain?). So Steve rectified it by saying it was his performance of “When You Believe” (by Mariah Carey) that was deemed by the judges as his best performance. (Note: LOL, this is so confusing. I am just going to add that it was David’s best performance up to Top 7 stage because David went on sing some of the most memorable songs later on.). The clip ended with Ryan asking David if he had eaten that night since he usually skip meals on performance nights due to nerves.
Check out David’s performance here – all kinds of awesomeness showcasing his amazing vocal abilities – the low note (growl), the falsetto, the beautiful tone, the improvisation! I love this performance. Simon – best performance so far!
When You Believe
The David Archuleta Week promo clip came right after – “FLY FM crushes on David Archuleta!”, then a playback of David talking about CRUSH being a relatable, sophisticated and mature song (Note: need interview source) and ending with the same fan shoutout.
Steve aired a phone conversation with our very own Justine from Archuleta Avenue!!I think she was asking if Steve can play some of David’s iTunes version and said she hoped David will tour Malaysia (YAY!). Steve replied that he believes that David will come to Malaysia since “his fanbase here is SO big.” (Note: Big? Serious??? Fly FM should know, right??? Malaysian Arch Angels, where are you? Please CRUSH the Archuleta Avenue Malaysia now!!! Justine FTW!). Uh-oh, the girlfriend question coming up soon!
Steve played the interview clip from Regis & Kelly Show where David was asked by Regis if he has a girlfriend. Weelllll, we know the answer to that, don’t we, altogether now…”I don’t. Not yet…..when I’m ready…it’s just there is so much going on right now…” (Note: David, do you know how many hearts will be “crushed” to pieces when you do get a girlfriend?)
OH MY GOSH, CRUSH! CRUSH!
His voice is so beautiful. This Crush ain’t goin’ away ay ay ay……
Steve asked us to call because it’s ALL about David Archuleta this week!
(note: Haha, this must be when our famous John got through to Steve!!!! Aww this so fun!)
Steve gave another David Archuleta Week shoutout, saying that they will give you “all that you want to know about the extraordinary 17 years old who was the runner-up in AI” and will be playing another the judges’ favorite David performance. (Note: Imagine?? Love the little insert of “extraordinary” – FLY FM gets David :D)
Steve aired the phone conversation with Justine. She gave a shoutout to ARCHULETA AVENUE MALAYSIA (wooohooo!Way to go gurl!!) and even spelled out the domain name, “archuletavenue.wordpress.com”, with one “a”. Steve actually understood her and repeated the “archuletavenue” with one “a”. (Note:We love you, Justine! Our first on air shoutout! I was sorta emotional at this part!)
Steve asked how it was for David when walking down a street now that he is so famous and then played a clip of the Radio Disney interview. David also mentioned about Jason’s dreads! Steve said, “Poor guy. But he loves his fans.” Part 2 of Radio Disney interview here.
This is the winning phone conversation!! Our very own John! I will try to do the recap but John can add/correct me. We love you, John!
Steve started out saying about calling in to profess our love for David Archuleta…
Steve: What’s up, John?
John: I want to thank you guys for having a David Archuleta Week.
Steve: You’re welcome. It’s so nice to have male fans call up.
John: I’m sure there will be more male fans calling up now.
Steve: Yes, starting from now, I want male fans to call me.
John: Well, I love David Archuleta (Note: John, the fanboy, was very calm and collected. We must learn from him, fangirls!)
Steve: Thank you for professing your love for David Archuleta, John.
John: You’re most welcome.
(LOL!What a gentleman. He has a nice voice, people. John, you forgot to give a shoutout to our lovely Anne & Lily from Archuleta Avenue Malaysia leh. Nevermind, call Steve again!)
Steve aired a phone conversation with Lin/Lynn (Note: Spelling? )She thanked FLY FM and also asked when David’s album will be out. Steve said that he got word from his record label that it will be out at the same time with David Cook’s and it is around mid-November. She asked if there was an exact date, to which Steve replied that it could 18th Nov but to be confirmed later.
S: Are you excited about David’s album?
L: Of course! Oh my gosh!
S: You know what, look out for his second single (Note: Does he know something??) I mean I love CRUSH but I’m looking forward to his second single.
David’s Week 8 AI performance coming up! (Note: Who can guess the song? You must heard this song a million times by now!)
Steve mentioned about David being the “Artist of the Week” and played the Top 8 episode starting from David’s introduction up to Ryan’s closing remarks. Chills! Please take a moment to view David’s Angels during AI and at Tulsa concert (general consensus, the best Angels!). See how far David has come! David, we love you!!!!!
AI Angels Performance
Tulsa Angels Performance
Steve closed this segment by saying that all the 3 judges adored David’s rendition of Robin Williams’s Angels
WOW! DAVID LOVEFEST AT FLY FM!
