When does C-lebrity go to radio in North America?
Does anyone know this? I'd like to know when I could expect to hear it / can start to request it?

Good question!

My guess is that it won't be heard until maybe just a few days before the album comes out (Oct. 14). Actually, I would like to hear more about the album on the television and radio -- not just the internet. It seems as if nobody will know of the album until the day of or after it comes out. I realize people write about it in magazines (especially Classic Rock), but there should be more happening in my opinion.

Of course I doubt there will be ANY promotion for it in North America. It will be slipped onto iTunes quietly. Then they will wonder why it did not do well.

I think we should all call our local radio stations and request it. They might say...huh, but we can try. ;-)

Absolutely, XM would play it

Now, the question is on what channel

I'd guess either Big Tracks or Bone Yard. Mix does play new stuff so perhaps that would work. As soon as it's available over here I will request it on all three stations.

Bone Yard??? They play hair bands. Big Tracks is for rock hits, but they do play some Queen. Hmmm.....

Big Tracks is stuck in the 80s - I can't see them playing anything post 2000 (and as I write this, Journey is playing on Big Tracks)

I can see Deep Tracks or Bone Yard, but I never listen to either station for long to really know what they play.

If they would make a video I am sure VH1 Classic would play it. They featured a lot of Queen programming around the time of the New Jersey show.

A DJ friend of mine has heard the song recently and thought it wasn't bad but noted that a good deal of radio DJs have not, so far anyway, shown any great deal of interest in wanting to play it.

I would imagine most have no idea it's even coming out. I will be requesting it on local radio here as soon as it comes out.
