Radio Orla: Elton John Day's impressions

Anyone could imagine an Elton's Day on one of the most recognized radios in UK, for Elton's birthday? Anyone could imagine a radio station promoting a song for Elton like "Original Sin", for an event created with the pretention to make smile Elton? Yes, one person, and it's not me. That's Nigel Coleman, who contacted one of the greatest fans over the world, George Matlock. We had the opportunity to reach so many people in UK, and it was a profit occasion. Me, I contacted George Matlock and, in two days, we promoted the event about "Original Sin" due on the radio on thursday.

Maybe that was a short time to do it, but before we did, we are plenty satisfied. "A lot of emails with greetings about Elton's songs on the radio, it was nice" said Artur Skupienski, the chief producer, about the Elton's Day on Radio ORLA. We could hear some of Elton's songs that we could never heard on the main radio stations, normally. Classic, obscure songs, "B" Sides, duets, lives, etc. and "Original Sin" shining above all. It was quite amazing to hear these songs live, that didn't happen very often.

Other thing, Ulrike Sherling, for her part, had the very good idea to promote our event in Germany, explaining that "on radio HR1 8.13 MP local time they played 'Original Sin'! I hope along with my greetings, where I mentioned it's the fans' officially chosen birthday song for Elton!". Thanks to her too.

We never ever will see a playlist like this, I am afraid. Or maybe not?
