Of course: It actually IS part my actual job. Shilling never sleeps.
Surfbum: So, because I may or may not have info I should just never come here and participate in discussion, talking about stuff our station will be doing related to Fest, etc? I never came here and said "Hey, I'm gonna leak you info." Teasing is exactly that....teasing. If you don't like being teased, why are you a board full of rumors and booking theories if not to tease your self? Sorry I upset you...relax dude...it's supposed to be fun....no one's kids will starve over concert rumors....
whoever asked about our site/stream: I don't handle those things....that would go to our tech/web folk....but, we are also on Tune In Radio app if our stream is wonky because of our site....
And my goal is not to brag (I have nothing to brag about!), merely to troll up interest for our announcements, contests and such....but I am at Hangout's mercy too...when they wanna drop the info, they will....not my place to give out when/where/who/etc.....

I may get shiz for this but doing some freelance in the COM field myself I get it Pablo, you're just doing you're job. Yeah it's super annoying because we're all antsy about the lineup, but radio is all about promo
Part of my job is to use social media to promote my bosses businesses too. I'm sure some done like it- but girls gotta get paid

All the people want out of you Pablo is a date the lineup will be dropped. We don't need you to name names. Just a day that the lineup will be announced. If your pompous ass can't provide us with that little itsy bitsy piece of information than you are useless.
4/4: of Montreal
4/8: Between the Buried and Me
4/22: Peter Hook & The Light
4/24: Gov't Mule
4.25: Dead Feat?
5/1: Primus > Voodoo Dead
5/2: Zappa Plays Zappa
5/3: Jazzfest > Voodoo Dead
7/3-5: Fare Thee Well
7/31, 8/7-8: My Morning Jacket
Pablo, f*ckface, I come here to talk rumors and have good conversation with people who are interested in the festival(s) that I am. See, there is a big difference between someone saying "I think so-and-so is going to be there because x-reason" and a dickbag fuckface promoter coming and teasing like he knows sh*t. Either you know something and won't share it which makes you a cocksmoker beyond belief, or you don't know fuckall and you're wanting us to bob for semen from you and beg you for information.
I just think it's lame how he's here just to hock for his radio station. This isn't the appropriate place for that.
I could care less whether or not he reveals a bit of information about the lineup.
I just think it is funny no one had a problem with his 40 posts over 2 years until they got frustrated because he will not give them confidential info.
I've been critical of him because he's a shill. I never expected any information from him. Anybody who was around the last two years knows he can't say anything. Do we really want posters who are here solely for promotion?
It bothered me last year but I guess I didn't care as much because I had no intention on going (until I saw the lineup). This year I have less patience for sh*t like this and actually am interested in going and he finally got to me.
I don't post here much, but I've been watching this thread for a while hoping for some useful info. Like most of you, I just want to see the lineup. I've found some nice condo deals, but don't want to commit until I'm sold on the lineup. I expect it to be worth the drive from NW Ala., but you never know. Honestly, I wouldn't go to Sasquatch. Just nothing there that excites me, but I'm "old" and prefer the "hippy festivals."
So.....maybe mumford announces in an hour and half that they are at hangout. They become the 1st headline leak a la Jack White last year. Then Hangout comes in and tells us the rest will drop on Thurs or something?
