The David Nelson Ostrosser song "G'Ling G'Ling" was sent to 124 Francophone radio stations in Canada June 13 under the artist name "David Nelson O." First station to jump on it (and let us know) - CINN-FM in Hearst, Ontario. Thanks, Melanie!

A full-year after the filming, editing for the video for "G'Ling G'Ling" was edited and ready to go online, thanks to the help of talented Yvan Roy and Jacqueline Ludlow. Posted to youTube under the artist name "David Nelson O.", a single of the song will now be distributed to Francophone radio stations across Canada.

David Nelson Ostrosser is setting his songs free to fend for themselves this winter. They've garnered satisfying radio play and been downloaded plenty, but some of the best songs don't seem to have had the exposure they deserve. When songs are offered free on Internet, they are downloaded about 100 times more than if people are asked to pay for them. Go figure. This must be due to the excellent financial acumen of the consumer. It may be a kind of pilot project for a new economic model that will shortly be extended to the plumber, the grocery store, and others, who will doubtless be just as willing to share the fruit of their labour free of charge. Be that as it may, David Nelson Ostrosser is offering FREE DOWNLOADS and FREE STREAMING of his songs this winter, to increase their exposure. Some of these songs just shouldn't...

Christian Lamitschka, of Country Home Magazine in Germany has recommended Second Hand Store as its top album pick for November 2009!

"Auf dem aktuellen Album von David Nelson Ostrosser geben sich die unterschiedlichsten Musikrichtungen die Klinke in die Hand. Da passiert es schon, dass sich Pop mit Country und America mischt. Doch das macht das Album gerade empfehlenswert. Denn es ist etwas anders als andere Alben." He-he, you can say THAT again!

Much to everyone's surprise, Radio-Canada's Infoman show featured excerpts of the «Iggy Eyebrows video». The appearance on a nationally televised network program before over a million viewers naturally caused a spike in youTube viewers that triggered a 24-hour viewer count freeze. They do that because they think people are cheating when the view counts spike that much! (To see the whole episode, click here.) (WMV, 9.5 Meg!)
