The Bad Hand hits #182 on CMJ Radio 200!
Startling evidence has recently come to light indicating that numerous people enjoy The Bad Hand's music. This week's CMJ Radio 200 chart placed The Bad Hand at #182. Despite solid radio play in the last few weeks, The Bad Hand was kept out of the Top 20 chart positions by meddlesome bands such as TV On The Radio, Thievery Corporation and Oasis. Songs from The Bad Hand's new album, 'in this line wish you happiness,' have been getting coast-to-coast airtime on indie and college stations, including LA's Indie 103, KEXP-Seattle, WRDP-Chicago, KJHK in Kansas, WRAS-Atlanta and WURV in Burlington, Vermont. Most of the music directors and DJs at the stations in question appear startled (or even offended) by their own enjoyment of the band's music, but this isn't stopping them from repeatedly subjecting the unsuspecting public to The Bad Hand.
