t-e.n hits the airwaves??

Elite patron Thomas Andrews (aka “wiwf”) brought a remarkable little piece of news to me several weeks back. A friend of his, named Dennis Paul, runs a radio show at a station in Seattle. He was coming up on his last day at this station and asked Thomas (online) if he had any song requests. Thomas made his request and the two kept talking and apparently got on the topic of GoldenEye, and later, the-elite.net. Ultimately, our site received mention on the air, along the lines of:

“Thomas from Colorado, the Goldeneye Geek, wants you all to know to go to www.the-elite.net. There is an hyphen after the, so that you cats don’t get mixed up.”

Thomas added that he really has no idea what kind audience the broadcast had, but hell–not too bad!!

    Wow! Way to go Elite! Not many websites can say they’ve been on the radio.

    I wonder if anyone who heard that actually went to it though.. Hmmmm.

  • Thomas

    I recently talked to Dennis. SPU (Seattle Pacific) does not do normal radio brodcasts, like ones you can pick up on your car radio. SPU does webcasts. So basically no one really got to hear it unfortunately, unless they wanted to hear Dennis be a really lousy DJ, which he is. :(
