Oooh – yesterday I forgot! Two years ago, a girl approached me after the end of the Aaron Carter show and said hi. My reply “Dude… am I supposed to remember you?”
Haha… well that was the start of a good friendship with Amanda… aka, the CEO of Tommy2.Net. The person that makes sure every morning you all have something to look at. I take care of writing it up, and she makes it happen. If you want to send her a thank you you can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yesterday Jesse McCartney blew up the Radio Disney Music Mailbag with Beautiful Soul receiving 1,073 picks and 28 kicks. That’s a 98% approval ratings – I’d call that rockin’ the vote! For the record Jesse just barely beat the record set by Greg Raposo’s Take Me Back Home which was 97%.
Minor correction on the news yesterday. The new Plus One song is Sea of Angels not Circle of Angels. My bad. Thanks to Kari and Jenny for the note. Today at 7pm Plus One’s brand new website is set to be launched.
At the moment Angel Faith (former No Secrets) is on track to have her single out in January, a DVD release in February and her debut release out in March.
Has anyone noticed that Play has completely fallen off the radar. Two weeks after their release they were pulled off the Aaron Carter Tour to visit Europe. Since then no dates or appearances have been announced. It just might be possible that they have been dropped from their contract with Sony/Columbia.

Available exclusively at the Disney Store – a special edition version of Hilary Duff’s Metamorphosis featuring a different cover.
You can vote for Jesse McCartney’s Beautiful Soul today at Radio Disney.com at 2pm (eastern). At that time you can register your pick or kick vote, right here. The latest regarding Jesse’s TV series Summerland is that will be making it’s debut in June of 2004. (credit: Candi)

Also, be sure to tune into the Radio Disney Top 30 Countdown tomorrow to hear an all new interview with Greg Raposo! If you experienced problems with the video I posted yesterday be sure to try again. You guys were killing the server, I’m guessing there won’t be nearly as much traffic today.

Newsflash: Rumor has it five jumpers took to the stage last night at an industry show. Yes, Jump5 – including Lesley Moore! Before everyone gets too excited, keep in mind that this was probably just a test since she is still recovering and may not be ready to take on a traveling/touring schedule just yet. If any of you know someone that’s had mono, it can take awhile to get back to full strength – so continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Be sure to check out the all new backstage access video clip of Greg Raposo! It’s available in Hi-Res or Regular! It looks as if Greg will be following in Nick Carter’s footsteps by staring in a horror movie called, Return To Sleep Away Camp. Details at the moment are very sketchy.
Last night at the MN State Fair, Plus One performed a brand new song from their upcoming album. Wish I knew the title, sorry!
