    I suspect the chances of new VH being on the radio tomorrow are approx. 0% I guess it's one of the following

    1. a hoax email (likely but boring)
    2. a radio gag (likely but boring)
    3. A bluff by the radio station to see if they get a cease and desist (maybe and potentially interesting)
    4. New music has leaked (unlikely but very interesting).

    I guess WRIF does at least have some history with VH - the DLRarmy streams a Roth interview from their site. On the other hand FORD posted some stuff over at the Pasture Dome suggesting WRIF are less than reliable.

    Well you know Jonathan I'll bet you're right on dude. 0 chance in hell, but that would rock if it happened. Kick ass! The rumor mill might be back in full swing. Out.

    I know nothing about the radio business, but it seems to me that no station would play new VH even if they had it, because then when VH is out doing the publicity rounds, that radio station would be frozen out of coverage.

    Which could give possibility to your 3rd point.

    Having said that, it isn't going to happen anyway, but it's fun to wait and wonder.

    Magic Eight Ball took a peak into the Starks Dome...someone has called this WRIF radio and they stand by their claim of playing a new track around noon.

    Magic Eight Ball is still skeptical.

    I did say 'unlikely' rather than 'impossible' Radio stations in the US seem to play stuff before it's officially released quite often. But new VH is more (or less) than 'unreleased' at this stage - we don't even know whether they have a singer let alone whether they are recording. And if they are planning some huge media blitz (which is likely) then the person who leaks new music in advance doesn't have much of a future in the music biz IMO.

    I disagree with Glenn though. If a radio station somehow gets hold of new VH, they are going to play the hell out of it until legally stopped. The publicity thing goes both ways - VH can't afford to boycott big stations in major markets.

    I tend to agree that they'd play it if they have it. "You heard it here first," and all that.

    The possibility that you guys haven't mentioned is that it's a joke track, or something like TWILY.

    It sounds to me like I gag, I can't imagine them going through all the pains of keeping everything quiet, only to have 1 radio station leak out the new song..

    Well, I haven't heard anything and I listen to that station all the time. I guess I can call them and see what they say. If you're interested, you can call them at 313-298-WRIF or listen at www.wrif.com

    To be fair, they had the new Gary material weeks before the release date and got fined for playing it. Same thing with Metalica when "Load" came out.

    It's funny though because just the other day one of the dj's said "We're still waiting to hear from Van Halen..."

    If and when I hear anything, I'll let you folks know!

    I seriously doubt it's gonna happen but you never know. I listen to WRIF's morning show (Drew & Mike) & they haven't said anything about it & they're big VH fans. It wouldnít surprise me if they played it though, I donít think WRIF is too worried about pissing VH off. WRIF is the only real rock station around here, all the others are either alternative or classic rock & the classic rock station is basically the Elton John/Billy Joel station, you never hear VH on that one. VH canít burn any bridges with WRIF cause WRIF is the only station thatíll play Ďem.

    I guess Iíll be taking my lunch break at noon today. If I hear anything, I'll let you know but I doubt it.
