MILITARY RADIO HAS NO ROOM FOR TRIBUTE

January 23, 2007 -- ROLAND MAJEAU just wants his song, "Soldier's Cry," played for U.S. troops fighting overseas. But the American military says that it not only won't, but can't, grant his wish.

This would be an easier story if I could say that Majeau's tune just isn't good enough. It is. In fact, the song is already being played for British troops in Iraq as well as for Canadians forces.

Majeau, a Canadian himself, had the foresight to write three versions of the ditty - one for each country - which he first composed in 1992.

And now he wishes that the soldiers themselves could hear his tribute to the Armed Forces that he paid $7,000 of his own money to record.

Majeau remembers writing the song after seeing a television documentary on how veterans were being forgotten.

"I believe in the message," he said. "These people need support."

The song was first played in Canada on Nov. 11, Remembrance Day, which is the Canadian equivalent of our Veterans Day. The British also started to give it air time recently.

But not the Americans - although there could be a good reason for the shun. Lawrence Sichter, chief of affiliated relations for the Armed Forces Network, says Majeau is asking for the impossible.

Eight years ago, Armed Forces radio got rid of all its DJs - remember Robin Williams playing one in "Good Morning, Vietnam"? - in favor of picking up feeds from commercial radio stations like Westwood One.

"On the radio side, we are basically automated," Sichter told me. "It's just a pass through" from stations in the U.S.

Besides, Sichter says, there are a lot of Roland Majeaus out there with songs they want played for the soldiers.

Sichter says Armed Forces Radio gets five songs a week during quiet times; 50 or 60 in a week after events such as 9/11.

"If we had a show it would be this kind of message all the time," says Sichter. So American soldiers get whatever song is charting on Billboard and playing on the Top 10 stations in the U.S.

"We use nothing that hasn't been on the Billboard charts," says Paul Waldrop, who also works on Armed Forces radio.

Here's Majeau's message in "Soldier's Cry," a tune that you might hear from someone like country singer Lee Greenwood and which - unlike many Billboard songs - doesn't contain a foul word or indecent thought.

Talk of trouble is sent through the country and we need an army to fight for the right.
Young men enlist and are sent to the battle to fight the offender and help our allies. And the young men cry, 'America we'll gladly go and fight for thee'

And the young men cry, 'America we'll fight to keep you free.'

The battle's raging, gunfire is blazing, a tired young soldier is clinging to life.

He's ordered on and obeys by advancing, no hope of returning from the enemy fire.

The Armed Forces Radio directs future Irving Berlins to a Web site where songs - like other messages - can be posted.

But unless a soldier happens to be carrying a laptop computer through Baghdad and wanders into a Wifi zone, he's not going to hear the song on www.AmericaSupportsYou.com either.

"We've done extensive research with our 33 overseas affiliates that continues to confirm their audiences only want to hear the hits," Armed Forces Network tells songwriters in its standardized rejection.

Nobody ever said introducing a new song was easy - not even when there's a higher
purpose than just making money.
