Tips on Writing to AMC/Rainbow/Anyone Else
- First and foremost, be polite. No one will listen to you if you name call, and fans will be considered immatureand frankly not worth programming for. Would you do something nice for someone who called you names?
- Also, don't "get cute." Threatening the equivalent of "I'll hold my breath and turn blue" makes no better impression than name calling. There are enough immature television viewers out there alreadyand unfortunately they're not all of the age to watch Sesame Street and Blue's Clues.
- Again, as always, make sure your letter is neat with not no grammar or speling misteaks. (See how distracting that was?) A handwritten letter is fine as long as it is neat and legible.
- State your purpose simply. Tell them how much you enjoyed the series. Give concrete reasons: for instance, no insulting humor, no toilet jokes, quality of scripts/actors/production, fondness for the era, particular characters or performers. Speaking of programming, if Remember WENN led you to watch more of AMC, do add that; they would probably be pleased to know that the series expanded your AMC viewing habits.
- You might want to say a little about yourself to further explain why you enjoy Remember WENN, but don't overdo it. A simple "I am a freshman in college studying for an English degree" or "I am 42 years old and grew up on my parents' stories of the Golden Age of Radio" is preferable to a two page bio. We want AMC to sit up and take notice, not fall asleep. <g>
Okay, have at it!
