    I stumbled on this email address robinsonbuckler few days ago, so i emailed him about my bad relationship condition, how my lover left me, how he was with another girl, so Mr Robinson told me it would take 3days to get my boyfriend back, i waited for 3 days, unbelievable my boyfriend came to my house asking me if we could try things out again. He broke up with the other girl and we rekindled and got back together, he now show me care and attention. Mr Robinson was my last hope, my last chance after all the spell casters I tried before, Mr Robinson kept his promise! he is the greatest spell caster on the internet, call Mr Robinson, he stays in UNITED STATE + [1 9 7 1 5 1 2 6 7 4 5] for

    Hi, Mike sensei!I’m from Malaysia and the radio working great. I wish to know what LP members do when they are off from works? Have you married?

  4. kaliblackbg on February 4, 2012 at 4:37 am

    wow, seriously – IT WORKS!!! Thanks, Mike!!! the radio is great!!! :) My question is: Will you keep making tracks like “RADIANCE”, “WISDOM, JUSTICE AND LOVE”… Waiting for the album :)

  5. kattoda on January 12, 2012 at 9:20 am

    I’m from Russia and I can listen to the radio, don’t know why some other guys can’t =/

    What could you do… maybe it would be cool to talk a bit about some awesome shows ща all time and about special fans which you found interesting and which were the most memorable. I think it would be great! =)

  6. brysislupin on January 10, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Im from Portugal and no :( I cant listen the LP radio with that link

  7. 1oo71 on December 19, 2011 at 3:48 am

    Oh, yeah, and how come you don’t dye your hair anymore? Will you ever again? ;_;

  8. 1oo71 on December 19, 2011 at 3:45 am

    It would be cool if transcripts of your interviews/Q&A’s were available for those of us who can’t listen.

    I have an inquiry… Why did you dye your hair back in the day? Was it inspired? Was it something you’d always wanted to do? Which colour did you have first? Which colour was your favourite?

    It was freakin’ awesome. Your red hair is why I will never forget “One Step Closer”. I want to know all about it.

  9. park3rms on December 18, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    Hey Mike, I’m not sure if you have all ready done this but I think it would be cool if you played the music that you grew up listening to, or that has inspired you to become who you are today. Anyways, I love the station! Keep up the great work!

    Hey Mike, this is a link to a little local band from my area. They sound similar to the type of songs you play on the radio already. Give them a listen! Thanks soo much! You and all the other LP guys are awesome forever!

  11. planetshadows on December 18, 2011 at 5:40 am

    Hi, Mike!!!!!!! Now I am in Ukraine , I don’t know why, but here even on this page I can’t listen LP. And yet, if you can, when come just at the profile of the radio, so it was immediately clear how quickly find the LP. Maybe this is a technical problem, but some of my friends are just at that address, and it is precisely on this page, not find the LP.

  12. jackiedis on December 18, 2011 at 3:49 am

    You should put your music less known, e.g. LPUs, the b-sides, etc.
    Incidentally, is there any band or singer that you would like to record together?
    and which countries you want to play yet?
    =)
    I hope you read this

    What inspired you to makes such kind of beautiful art? from where you get such amazing ideas?

    Translate Google: I would like to hear music varied, while doing the program, you are in a video chat for us to see you, and we can request songs of all kinds Sorry for not speak in English, but i dont know – Spanish: me gustaria que se escuchara musica variada, que mientras estes haciendo el programa, estes en un video chat para nosotros verlos a ustedes, y que podamos pedir canciones de todo tipo lo siento por no hablarte en ingles, pero es que no seee

  15. thegluelpfan on December 16, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    What do you guys enjoy doing in your free time?And what is the feeling of having millions of people caring about your music?

  16. aravind221 on December 16, 2011 at 11:27 am

    Mike the i – heart heart here in India is not accessible , its not only here , its not available in Many countries, Trying to make it accessible Globally would be Much appreciated for the fans !!!!!!!!!!!! Many thanks for your efforts though ;)

  18. sunnyroade on December 16, 2011 at 12:12 am

    Hey Mike you should check this out http://ellenrogers.co.uk/ photography it’s something what i love!Talk a little bit more about yourself in your LP Radio

  19. lilyrios10 on December 15, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    You guys should talk more about LP also more Linkin Park Music PLZ!!! :D Thank You so much for everything! U guys are FkING awesome!!!!!!!

  20. Nina Nine on December 15, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    How you feel about all the love that south america feels for you?? We the latins are passion… And we feel passion for LP. I hope have you back here soon!

  21. cxhxaxs on December 15, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    Hey Mike, is there any way you cold do competitions for people in the UK (Scotland) to meet you etc and do some LPU chats wihtin the UK time zone?
    Missed 2 and im gutted :(
    Take care CxHxAxS xxx

  22. annasteve on December 15, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    Sorry Mike, yes in Spain it works :) but I thing that you could include the raio in the LP app! It would be a nice idea becouse we could hear it not only when we’re near the computer :) And those are your favourite songs? you could put the name of who has choosed the songs! and the listeners can know what type of music does every member of the band listen!

  23. annasteve on December 15, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    …in Spain it doesn’t work, it’s only available in the U.S.
    I think that you shouldn’t talk about your private lifes and I know that you won’t do it! :) you can do a lot of things in the radio like talk about your projects for charities (PowerTheWorld), explain something about you experiences arround the world tour and some anecdotes, play some LP demos (for doing it more interesting)and Lp songs, and you can answer some questions that your fans have posted on the LP facebook’s wall for example… But first, make it available in all the countries please :)

  24. valeria012 on December 15, 2011 at 8:57 am

    I don’t like a Christmas album with Linkin Park, sorry but that’s what I think would seem to me something very amazing,sorry my english google translator hahahah XD

  25. h4321 on December 15, 2011 at 4:49 am

    Play an acoustic or different version of your popular songs – again available for download for charity.
    Bring wives and/or children in for a show once in awhile – maybe have a Mike week, then a Chester week, etc etc.
    If you are on the line for deciding between a couple of songs for your next album – let the fans decide the bonus track – play one a week for awhile and let people vote/text to decide what the final cut is.
    1. Whole game of LP for Guitar Hero and some songs for DJ Hero
    2. A Christmas Album with LP

  26. h4321 on December 15, 2011 at 4:48 am

    Have a theme for the show to help a cause – helping victims from disasters, abuse, bullying, drugs/alchohol abuse, depression. Talk about experiences and maybe have a short review with expert – but most of all PLAY (your) MUSIC. Play LP songs but also related songs – like for drug/alc day play some doors and some nirvana. Have the show available to download mp3/itunes with proceeds going to the theme of that week. (That way people who cant get radio can still listen). Maybe advertise the future themes and have listeners send in their stories and feature an average fan who overcame a problem, bring in the kid who is getting bullied, talk to someone affected by an earthquake, etc

  27. linkingabo on December 15, 2011 at 12:31 am

  29. kattshinoda on December 14, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Besides putting great music with music would be good to provide the best groups from each country.And just get more humanitarian aid

  30. regiw on December 14, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    Do you think that Linkin Park’s image, or rather the way in which the big masses perceive and think of LP has changed considerably over the last ten years? Do you believe this perception – whatever it changed or not – has an impact on people’s interest on your music?
    Thanks again!
    – Regi

  31. regiw on December 14, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Hi Mike! I have one more for you: during the summit in Hamburg I’d the chance to ask you about the survey we had received the day before. Six moths afterwards and I’m still curious about it. Was there any unexpected answers? Any big surprises? Or did we stick to the predictable? ;-)
    Thanks
    – Regi

  32. valeria012 on December 14, 2011 at 10:55 am

    I have some ideas here that could use if they like
    1_. Try not to repeat the same thing because when I hear on the radio today are happening yesterday. Then put another member of the band on the radio, you are 6, one each day.
    2_. You can talk about yourself or curiosities of places that have been
    3_. you can play games by asking questions and people to respond with messages

    when I have more ideas I’ll post more

    a big hug

  33. Silvano_D on December 14, 2011 at 10:17 am

    Hey Mike,

    You should definitely leave up some live performances and a good mix of old and new stuff, some of which everybody knows, other songs that you feel would work, but maybe have never been published as singles.

    Of course we fans would love to see about what the next album is gonna be like, blabla, but I don’t think iHeartradio is the right place (no offense, I love their website, but what’s the LPU for?)
    I, personally, am always interested what you guys listen to, maybe even regarding the process of making the album (to make the other demanders happy) – it’s just interesting to know what inspires you, and what you like!

    Keep it up!
    [sd]

  34. loshi222 on December 14, 2011 at 6:26 am

    Hi uhmmi would really like to know more about the next album and new songs that you guys are going to release.

  35. calessi on December 14, 2011 at 6:13 am

    you still get not available outside us have just tried link this is impossible!!!

  36. angelicalala on December 14, 2011 at 5:13 am

    Yeah!! Thanks Mike for the link, it works!!
    So..it will be great if we can listen you guys playing new music live in the studio, and also wish to know more about the new album! cheers Mike.

  37. victoriacortez on December 13, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Mike, i was listening to iheartradio, and i heard a phone call from rosa in belgum? and she was saying that your womens apperal/ merch needs to be better. i totally agree! dont get me wrong i see nothing wrong with wearing a boys tee, but as a girl, i prefer girl clothing :)
    Thanks!

  38. mssueellen on December 13, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    Mike, I don’t know where Yomarqueslp is from, but here in my country (Honduras) we don’t listen at all. I know that my home is a third-world country, but I’ve listened to other things from here. Anyway, the idea is pretty cool,and I agree with some other bloggers that it’ll be cool if you include any information about the next album’s process when you get to work on it. As well as live recordings, I know it’s hard to decide among all the creations you work on, but I think we all love to hear what you’re doing at studio. I guess it would be fun. And hope to get to listen it someday!

  39. yomarqueslp on December 13, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    Yup, that link works! Thanks, Mike :)

  40. duragon on December 13, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    Oh and also, Christmas songs with Linkin Park! Piano, acoustic guitars, and all.
    Simple christmas song covers to make the radio, holiday fitting!
    Would love to drink my coffee, sitting in my kitchen watching out of the window to the lighted up houses while listening to ”Santa Claus is comming to town” and ”Jingle bell rock” by you guys. Christmas could not be more perfect!

  41. morganatenebre on December 13, 2011 at 11:45 am

    Hi. How re u? I hope u been great! Well, about ur question… I think u could record new episodes at radio every month, with the lastest charts and of course the favorite songs of LP members (cause fans like to hear wht u hear, make us more close of u) and interact with the fans alive, of course u would need to post when u would do that, so fans could have chance to participate in the radio show. U could to make some games alive, with prizes to the winners, something like quizzes about LP and another bands too (if u’d want) and the prizes since cds to free tickets to vip areas on LPS shows. What do u think?

  42. rockeraddict on December 13, 2011 at 11:26 am

    most of the comments have this promotional aspect as in listen to my song, listen to this band or read my blog.. you could pick either of them for a topic or even the latest humblebrag :)

    maybe you could also try getting the fans involved by randomly selecting people from around the globe and having them pick the song of the day or winning a chance to talk to all of the band members at once. Since the solar bulbs is at priority, you could try getting any lp fan to donate them personally at one of the homes.

  43. regiw on December 13, 2011 at 11:08 am

    Hi again! So far, it seems only you and Chester were playing the DJ part. It would be great if each of the guys would choose the songs too. Ideally they should all be there with you, but if not, they should give you their wish list. Like, I know most of the stuff Chester played, but not many of the artists you did…

  44. sasamarissa on December 13, 2011 at 10:29 am

    This is a bit out of the topic but I decided to post it anyway. Those of you who are from outside the U.S. and can’t access the radio try this : http://iheartradio.com/cc-common/widget/streaming.swf?wid=7558

    I don’t know if it works :D

    • tragictravis on December 13, 2011 at 10:34 am

      no no no, to his Spotify lol

  45. tine2510 on December 13, 2011 at 10:29 am

    Hi Mike, just one question: Why does LP support a game like ‘Medal of Honour’ which is violent and glorifies war? I think it doesn’t match with the pacifistic statement of ATS.

    • snowcrisp on December 13, 2011 at 2:59 pm

      why are they glorifying war when they could well be reaching out to other (or new) fans that will hear the music and beliefs?
      sometimes we must enter a part of this world we don’t like to get a message across

  46. tragictravis on December 13, 2011 at 9:46 am

    hey dude can u get me a link to ur Spotify follow page, they have a button thing that u can put on the sidebar.

  47. nicoxenoz on December 13, 2011 at 7:12 am

    hmmm… why don’t you guys make some songs for the Holidays? :D

  48. erimarika on December 13, 2011 at 5:22 am

    Mike,
    I’d like to know how you actually play a part as a producer while making an album, as well as being a band member at the same time. I’d also like to know what you guys do when you and other band member disagree, and how you try to find a solution?

  49. drunkenmunkey on December 13, 2011 at 4:06 am

    LOL. Info Wars. lol. Com. LOL. So Drunk….lol. LOL.

  50. blackhaos on December 13, 2011 at 3:21 am

    All you need is be you, don’t try be equal, just have so many radios like that, try to be yourself to be orginal, pass the messenger what you wanna pass, not what they want you pass. Tanks to share that with us…

    Leandro.

  51. snowcrisp on December 13, 2011 at 2:43 am

    explain how bands contact each other to perform on/make a song/vid with each other.
    who makes first contact?
    who decides which song?
    how the direction the song/vid goes?
    we know you like touring with MCR (their food tent) lol but who else?

  52. jershalp on December 13, 2011 at 12:59 am

    Talk about the new album, how much of the album is done. What do you think of the entire progress…..
    Also tell us about Power The World

  53. bothcsa on December 13, 2011 at 12:27 am

    Mike, what do you want to play on radio?

  54. smoshee on December 12, 2011 at 8:58 pm

    How about a section for sustainable development.. measures and technologies… I applaud your commitment to this cause and being an Energy Engineer myself and watching my fav band give importance to my field is overwhelming :)continue your good work…

    You have constantly said u have traveled to various places over the world and picked up tunes/instruments apart from the regular music we all listen to you could play us some ethnic tunes that have inspired your/Linkin Park’s music…

    And I like the idea of interviewing friends too :)

  55. thepixelpod on December 12, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    -i just want to hear the others members of the band talking in the radio :)

  56. starmony78 on December 12, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Hi mike, what about adding a section where you play great songs from LP or other bands that have never been release as a single. You could ask this to other musicians. Something like forgotten great songs :)

  57. adhara9 on December 12, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Hi Mike, here are some ideas:
    1. Freestyle rapping
    2. Share any interesting findings from that survey you asked fans to complete a couple months ago.
    3. Favorite foods/restaurant recommendations from the places you have traveled.
    4. Giveaways
    5. Interview some of your musician friends

  58. phoenix72 on December 12, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Share how the band works together and separately how you work withe creative process any tips for other musicians and creative types like writers like myself. Who were your inspirations as a musician and how did Linkin Park come about? Meanings of songs would be great too. Love you guys

  59. coizu on December 12, 2011 at 4:01 pm

    Just add that song and everything is perfect :-D

  60. melissapenney1955 on December 12, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    You inspire me. So let me put down what I’m writing and try to bring something beautiful to this gift.

  61. poddieman on December 12, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    Sorry, here is the correct link for the comment below:

  62. poddieman on December 12, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    Hey Mike, why not do a monthly / bi-monthly playlist highlighting stuff you have come across that you think is worth some attention. thecoolhunter.net does this with a playlist of about 10 songs – picking and choosing well know artists to literally unknown guys who make music in the bedroom. I found this on his most recent playlist – literally one dude in his bedroom making music – after thecoolhunter.net featured him thousands of people have had a chance to discover something new and great that would have drowned in the sea of unsigned musicians out there if it weren’t for guys like you and thecoolhunter who have audiences in the millions:

  63. 7kirara7 on December 12, 2011 at 2:48 pm

    Lots of good ideas already here…
    Best one was to interview other LP-members or other bands you are friends with. You should really do that!

    What about talking about your favourite countries so far, since you’ve already visited nearly the whole world! (*cough* don’t forget quiet little Austria xD)

    or… would there be any chance, that you guys would do something like Collision Course again? But with another artist?

    And of course, the next album. How far did you get until now? Will it be anything like A Thousand Suns, or a whole new experience again? (After ATS, we fans just don’t know what to expect. But I guess, it’s as Dave said two years ago: Expect the unexpected…

  64. scorpirocking on December 12, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    love your songs, keep rocking!!!

    here another idea for your great radio station: SEP7EMBER, great English singing indie-band from Frankfurt, Germany, who have just got a record deal with SPV. latest single: “I HATE NY”, funny song about all these “I love …” – shirts:

    here the link to their youtube – channel:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/september7000

  65. javierssgb on December 12, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    Mike see this:

    I have done :D

  66. kuja82 on December 12, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    Playlists…. the guys mp3s on heavy rotation at the moment !!
    Special guests, duets with unlikely people, maybe even fans lol

  67. aberu on December 12, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    another question: when you release the Nendroid of A Thousand Horizons?

  68. sasamarissa on December 12, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    It’d be fun to hear more fans on the radio (if that’s possible) :)

    It seems that a lot of people outside the U.S. don’t have an access to the iHeartRadio, well at least it works in Finland.

  69. genessa755 on December 12, 2011 at 1:41 pm

    my question is if and when you guys perform on SNL again, will you participate in a skit?

    and here is a band you guys hsould play they are called d.r.u.g.s. (destroy rebuild unitl god shows. they are great ive seen them like 4 times

  70. tikalbozeman on December 12, 2011 at 1:37 pm

    Mike, I got a few questions:
    1)When you’re in the process of making music, how difficult is it to decide which batch of songs will make the final cut or not? Does everyone in the band have to agree?
    2)When Linkin Park first started out, was it just you? Or was it you and Brad?
    3)Do you have any other favorite NBA teams other than the Lakers?
    4)How has the music industry changed as a whole since you first started out?
    5)How do you guys manage being on tour? Especially now that you guys are more “fashionably mature”? (I didn’t want to say older, Ha!
    6)Do you like Odd Future?
    If you answer any of these, thanks man! I appreciate it when you take the time to talk to fans!

    -Caleb

  71. bgrazi on December 12, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    Well…being a dude of radio, There’s plenty of different types of content you can cover. There could be some indepth bio…A lot of people appreciated you guys covering Adele’s Rolling in the Deep and some people might even say it was done better and the same thing with NIN’s Wish. So possibly taking polls or a look at new ways to cover different bands/artists/songs. You can talk about cities you guys been to…where to go….maybe get sponsorship from a travel agency company there.
    Different types of equipment usage?
    Free-styling? Interviews with other artists within the label? Promote the label and your buddies? Feedback?

  72. genessa755 on December 12, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    my question is if and when you guys perform on another snl episode, will you participate in a skit? personally, i think it would be very funny :)

    also here is a great band you should play they are called d.r.u.g.s. (destroy rebuild unitl god shows)ive seen them like 4 times

  73. taranee666 on December 12, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    when i could listen to you I thought it was great music but now i can not listen to this radio since i don’t live in USA. too bad!! :( but go on!!! great job as usual!!!

  74. nairod01 on December 12, 2011 at 12:58 pm

  75. bahar67 on December 12, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    you have a great musical taste, so whatever you choose is awesome :) may be you could add some muse and radiohead music , or even thom yorke’s solo work (lately i am quite stuck with their music), and some 70/80’s music(rock of course). you could as well do a live remix, what do you think? or just play your remixes. also inviting the other LP members over could be interesting, you guys should talk about some of your experiences :)or have interviews with the other guys helping you out in the studio (like sound engineers, etc). hope it was helpful, enjoy your day!

  76. nairod01 on December 12, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    Hey Mike,

    I tried to write an original song which looks like the one you made for The Raid !

    may you could play something from the german band Motorjesus when you find something xD they are not so popular at all but they rock! :D the howling ♥ one of their best songs :D

  78. sinshrift on December 12, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    Play independent Artist’s! I would love to hear my band be played on your station. We are from Gilbert, Arizona!

  79. maldiniho on December 12, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    Hey Mike.
    I’am 15 and coming from germany, so my english is not my best.
    But your are a legend in mey eys.
    I am playing piano in my Band and we actully just playing Linkinpark stuff because we are your biggest fans.
    We want to know how we get fame and what we should do?
    Love ya. Intact (is this bandname nice? :D)

  80. michelletodorovic on December 12, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    Do you know the german band called “Rammstein”? I guess that would be quit good. They’re also quit succsessful in the US, so some ppl will know them ;)
    You should check them out on YT. :))

  81. regiw on December 12, 2011 at 11:37 am

    What I’d like to know, if you’d be so kind to answer: :-)

    I’m member of LinkinPark.com and also a LPUer for about an year now. Not that I’m complaining :-), but why does LP put such an effort in providing us fans with so much? Not only every single detail is so good taken care of, it seems you guys are always trying to improve it even more, always moving it forward. And just for the records: LPU11 is just incredible – in all possible ways!
    Thanks for all!

  82. colinreid on December 12, 2011 at 9:55 am

    Going back to your Twitter conversation about spelling and grammar. You wrote * I’m going to updating our station at IHeartRadio soon*. You forgot to add in the be lol

  83. krenol on December 12, 2011 at 9:13 am

    Could you please move to another station which is available outside the US? would be awesome Mike!

  84. adiek84 on December 12, 2011 at 7:34 am

    Hey Mike, you should definitely play the “Iridescent” cover some students recorded for charity. I already tweeted you an article about that, but I’m not sure that you even read your mentions. Here’s the video and article:

  85. angelicalala on December 12, 2011 at 7:05 am

    hi Mike, as IHeartRadio is now only available in the US, so, i really wish LP Radio can go live again internationally!! thanks.

  86. lprise on December 12, 2011 at 5:35 am

    Tell us more about the song wirting Process, gear you use and other LP behind the scenes stuff!

  87. lode1989 on December 12, 2011 at 4:41 am

    oow,now I got also an awesome idea: Let your fans submit their music and you stream all the tracks and tells about them. MAybe give some of the artist a call.

  88. lode1989 on December 12, 2011 at 4:39 am

    My question: Last months/years you hear more and more about Tinnitus en Hyperacusus what means ringing in the ears and over sensative for noise. Sound actually hurts… I got the both, good luck the hyperacusis is with ups and downs. Doctors only tell you you can’t cure it and tey don’t know why you have it. All other people going more to concerts, going more into noise.. Like you for example don’t have it. Do you think they need to start finding solutions? The tinnitus and hyperacusis disease are not deadly but 50% of tinnitus/hyperacusis sufferers kills them selves because they can’t live with the fact they get hurt just by noise.. The world is full of sound.

    More information about Music for Relief and PowerTheWorld.org <– I'd love to hear more about Dave's visit to Haiti and the project you guys have started!

    More Jensen Karp!!! That guy is hillarious!!!

    Funzt bei mir jedenfalls :) LG

  93. aline4lp on December 11, 2011 at 10:26 am

    What about “This or That” question sessions with the band members? That would be fun ;)
    I also have two questions: Do you think there will be a tour before the release of the next album, or afterwards?
    Second: Have you already worked on (or ideas for) the album artwork?

  94. akismet-e6dc45582db9948a882d6fcf7146d38b on December 11, 2011 at 9:33 am

    Didn’t get a chance to listen yet. But if it has not been offered up yet…
    What about live stuff, you guys messing around… and/or collabs live (even the ‘making of’ or having the fans listen in on moments they’d never experience elsewhere. mm mm dunno.

  95. brittlp on December 11, 2011 at 8:40 am

    Hey Mike :) I was wanting to know if you could maybe make a radiostation with the same songs and stuff for international use. For example here in Germany we cant listn to iHeart radio. *crys* Hoping or reply or a radio we can lisnt to ;)

  96. zarinab on December 11, 2011 at 8:10 am

    LAZIZASH, exactly) You should tell funny stories of your band or from childhood)

  97. zarinab on December 11, 2011 at 8:07 am

    I even don`t know…maybe more different styles of music (nevertheless it has a lots of music :)) Oh! You should make a interview with other musiciants, it would be interesting to listen your conversation)

  98. lillyhfg on December 11, 2011 at 6:53 am

    Lucky us, the radio is working in Hungary.

  99. nikoshinoda on December 11, 2011 at 6:30 am

  100. Dee on December 11, 2011 at 4:51 am

    what about the top 10 or top 40 list of songs that are chosen by Linkin Park members?

  101. pidgeon84 on December 10, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    what they said :P

  104. lazizash on December 10, 2011 at 1:00 pm

    Hi Mike!
    So you know what, I think you need to add a section where you, or other members of the group, talking about the funny moments during the tour, recording and so on, and telling interesting cases. There are a lot of ideas, you just need to sit down and think about it :) Good luck!
    P/S: or just tell bedtime stories for children, like in some of other radio stations :D
    Laziza

  105. lpglennlp on December 10, 2011 at 10:53 am

    Maybe you could answer this for me cause ive been wondering for awhile… Have you guys started writing for the new album. If so, How far into the process are ya’s?

  106. chocoinspire on December 10, 2011 at 10:20 am

    You can do more inserts where participants of Linkin Park will talk about impressions of the recent concerts, the fans, and more. Tell us more about how you began to write music, how to achieves perfection in the sound … It inspires me and I’m sure that has influenced for many, it’s really interesting, to know how it all began, developed and what planning for the future.
    Really like the music that you choose, we have similar tastes :) So I want more music that inspires you and inspires to this day. Thank you for your attention, Russia loves you very much :)

  107. nutritionelles on December 10, 2011 at 10:14 am

    Get dave and rob up there, I haven’t really heard them at all in the LPradio. You could talk about tours. Best&worst memories and stuff :)

  108. imgoinhome on December 10, 2011 at 9:48 am

    PRAAAAANK!!

  109. mikeecem on December 10, 2011 at 8:59 am

    i think you can add a chat-box, LP’s last photos by Mike Shinoda :D and sometimes you can ask to your fans a song request. the station must be a Linkin Park Heaven.

  110. vaan600 on December 10, 2011 at 6:35 am

    Please, can you try to expand the radio to Spain? I want to listen it but I can’t beacuse I’m in Spain

    Thank You

  111. kyroray on December 10, 2011 at 4:38 am

    You can make the radio you can listen to the Ukrainian IP?

  112. jsyst3m on December 10, 2011 at 4:24 am

    First thing you should do: 1)is to make it international
    cause me in Morocco I can’t listen to it !!!
    2) to make kind of a schedule like one day of the week you’ll be answering fan’s questions.
    3) to be more often on air ! like everytime one of the members talk about something, experience, or a plan …
    and Good luck with it :D

  113. krenol on December 10, 2011 at 3:34 am

    Where do you look for the latest fashion trends and where do you buy your clothes? ;)

  114. OSSPARK on December 10, 2011 at 1:24 am

    great ideas you got already….

  115. shashanksardesai on December 9, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    UMMMMMMMM, U CAN SHARE HOW LP EVOLVED AS A BAND AND HOW IT EVOLVED INTO WHAT IT IS TODAY, THE REASON FOR CHANGING GENRE AFTER MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT, U CAN TALK ABOUT RARE LP SONGS LIKE FROM HYBRID THEORY EP, PROBLEMS U HAD WHILE WORKING! U GET WHAT I;M TRYING TO SAY????

  116. cezar_lp on December 9, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    Will be cool to listen to yourself singing (acoustic) in the radio interpreting any song of LP, FM or maybe other band

  117. andreas215 on December 9, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    Hey Mike,
    If you hadn’t created Linkin Park and instead started your career as an artist. Do you think you still would have become a famous artist, knowing that your paintings don’t have all the Linkin Park fans supporting them? :)

  118. djmoonx3 on December 9, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Original song. Posted this about a month ago. It’s gotten over 20 000 views now. If you haven’t checked it out yet, please do :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpGsXH6u9ws P.S. I’m 15

  119. stefraza on December 9, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    Well I would say:

    1) Talk what you guys plan for 2012, what the fans can look forward to n such. As examples:

    *** An update about your new Album, how far u got by now with it (I guess it’s the most important question for the fans ^^), what music style it will be, if it will be HT-style, ATS-style or completly new, maybe even give a teaser if possible
    *** Any plans for upcoming concerts?
    *** Projects

    2) A resume about 2011 would be cool

    3) Phone calls with fans or guests

    Yeah… And I got a question, I’d like to know why you guys have never put ur vocals on the demos Pale, Halo, Soundtrack and Program? They’re awesome n have so much potential

  120. Michael Gonzalez on December 9, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    I would appreciate it if you gave an opinion on the music my friends are making or promote them on the show somehow. That would be really cool to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

    Here is the trailer for upcoming album:

    -Mike

  121. JoanaLP on December 9, 2011 at 10:18 am

    hello mike
    one day I was listening to the LP and noticed that fans were participating in the issue.
    was wondering if anyone can participate in it, or just members of the LPU. I also wanted to ask when they come to Portugal: D
    Big Kiss by Joana, from Portugal <3

  122. shinodacakes77 on December 9, 2011 at 9:56 am

    I do have one question, I’ve been browsing youtube alot lately and I always see “Evanescence ft. Linkin Park: Wake me up inside” Now we all know that’s not the name of the song and it’s not you guys, but someone commented that they originally asked you to be on the song… true or false??

  123. koocoomoo on December 9, 2011 at 9:48 am

    Hey thanks so much for doing LP radio. I’ve discovered so much great music there that I haven’t heard anywhere else! You’re amazing. :D
    Maybe you can talk about some stuff that inspires you.
    Maybe comedians to check out.
    Oh, and one thing for sure, remember to be Awesome.
    =]

  124. frizzlefrazzlefrozzlefrome on December 9, 2011 at 8:54 am

    Maybe discuss five or so songs that you all have found personally &/or professionally inspiring.

    Any consideration to creating an indie type rock movie? It’s been too long since anything interesting’s been done.

  125. cincybmxlpfreak on December 9, 2011 at 8:37 am

    Hey. Uhh…Call me? That would make LP’s radio more interesting. :D :P Also, I’d love to hear about some of your recording techniques when you’re working with Pro Tools. Also, do you guys use MIDI at all, and if so, what do you use it for? Thanks. :)

  126. festiz1 on December 9, 2011 at 8:21 am

    Live freestyles!

  127. regiw on December 9, 2011 at 8:02 am

    Hi Mike!

    As you may have noticed, people tend to get a little nervous when talking to you and saying: ‘it’s only me, Mike’ is surely the sweetest thing I’ve heard, but not a great help to fans’ eloquence! So maybe you should do the talk – mostly.

    What about a ‘NAME THAT LINKIN PARK TUNE’ game? 3 seconds per song, 3 songs per person, 2 to 3 fans. Or even better, call the other guys and let them name the tune! Also 3 songs, but only 1 by LP! Do you reckon they would get it right?

    Maybe you could get people to tweet you questions, that way all fan community would be involved – and tweeter would go insane for a while! ;-)

    Love
    Regi

  128. im108ftw on December 9, 2011 at 7:47 am

    Hmmmm Mike.
    Maybe another LPU chat with questions-answers?
    That’s gotta be great, you know.

  129. anastasiyasamchenko on December 9, 2011 at 6:18 am

    Hello everybody! I think it would be more interesting if you fill your program by some old-school songs which you like. And you may make quotations of famous people including yours utterances. Thanks for your attention, your devoted fans from Ukraine)))We Love YOU. When will you arrive to us?

  130. msdonetsk on December 9, 2011 at 5:45 am

    Hi Mike. Or someone who’s reading that. Im listening the Radio only about three mothes, but I really enjoyed it from the first minute( maybe because Not Alone was the first song I listened to there)At first, I would like to hear more your songs from previous albums. Secondly, it will be cool to listen to some famous or maybe just talented musicians(What about Vampire Weekend?). Next, that will be awesome if you tell more about your life in band, about some funny events from the history of LP.Also I would like to hear Brad. His voice’s so lovely. Really. And tell about your new album) plz =3
    P.S. Sorry for my bad English. I’m from Ukraine and I’m just studying)
    МЫ ВАС ЛЮБИМ <3

  131. Braffschein on December 9, 2011 at 4:02 am

    OKAY NOW I’M SO, SO, SO SORRY FOR THE FOLLOWING. It doesn’t have much to deal with LP Radio. But well, Mike, you can tell all the listeners about this.
    Today I learned that my English teacher (she is close to her 70s) LIKES LINKIN PARK. I CAN’T. I JUST NEED TO TELL EVERYONE, especially you guys must know it.
    Isn’t that awesome? 70 years old LP fan. That’s saying something.
    I feel like a proud mother now :D Thank you for the fact that you are THAT amazing.

  132. svstels on December 9, 2011 at 4:00 am

    It will be great if you add this one to the radio playlist (sorry for spam).

  133. mrmmusictech on December 9, 2011 at 2:16 am

    hey mike! idea: you can try to post new unsigned acts’ music up on the LP radio! example this one–>

    hey mike! idea: you can try to post new unsigned acts’ music up on the LP radio! example this one–> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMYLWUBQkDU

  135. shoegaze4u on December 9, 2011 at 12:48 am

    ps: For me as a LP Fan it is always interesting to hear, what music you guys listening to. Do you already integrate music from all band members in your program? Or is the station your own baby?

  136. shoegaze4u on December 9, 2011 at 12:35 am

    Sorry Mike, I can’t give you a appropriate answer, cause iHeartRadio is only available in the U.S. :-(

    But, I listen a lot to other stations (SomaFM, Indie/Pop/Rocks is a great one!) and I appreciate that I can get in touch with artists, that fit into “my” genres and that I don’t know before. So make your radio station to a source of inspiration for the listeners.

  137. Braffschein on December 9, 2011 at 12:11 am

    Hey Mike, here’s what I suggest:
    1. Someone said about other members, THAT WOULD BE SO RIGHT. I need them there, especially Phoenix, so badly.
    2. You guys could do some surveys with LP fans and then announce the results on LPRadio.
    3. Just put some more new music there, almost everytime I listen to LP Radio I hear same songs again and again. I know you try to keep it updated, but still.

    AND A FINAL LINK TO ALL THE FANS WHO SAY THEY CAN’T LISTEN TO LP RADIO: what do you mean it’s been finished outside US? isn’t this an LP Radio as well? http://www.iheartradio.com/cc-common/news/sections/special/linkinpark/

  138. michelle2014 on December 8, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Hey mike. Can you tell what art school you went to? I am interested in doing album art and im starting my basics in the summer. PS im only 15 and am going to college next year., thanks mike and how did cheaters surgery go? 

  139. dcl1982 on December 8, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    I haven’t listened to the station in awhile, but I’d be cool to hear what the other guys grew up on and/or listen to now.

  140. Alexandra Nofi on December 8, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    1. Hire Stryker. I miss the two of you on radio together.
    2. Maybe feature LPU demos from time to time?
    3. Giveaways. Every station has them. (If you’ve already done this then, whoops. I don’t listen to LPradio)
    4. This is kind of a big one with me. I’d love it if you would feature international music. Like, Rammstein, even though I’m not a fan of them, I know a lot of fans from Germany who adore them <3. There are a lot of great South Korean bands, like 2NE1 and Big Bang who are mega talented and deserve some American ears. Big Bang are a pretty standard hip hop/R&B group, but 2NE1, very unique sound, 100% worth looking up and promoting.

  141. evanstoker on December 8, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    How about a monthly or semi annual art contest or music contest? You could add a thematic element to it or you could just pick your favorites from the entries and either give the winner a radio play or, if it were an art contest, post about the winning piece here on your blog.

    Also, perhaps an underground music segment? Listeners could submit pieces of original music for you to review and play during a half hour or full hour block dedicated to underground music that hasn’t been picked up by a label.

    Finally, a “pick of the day” segment in which you can share some kind of charity/cause you like that people can get involved with.

    Hope you enjoy the suggestions! Thx!
    Evan

  142. derekoswald on December 8, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    1. Repeat the LPU chat and private phone number deal. It was executed well, and I believe it produced some great segments for radio.
    2. Allow downloads of the show. Having to stream it on a bad connection for over an hour is a pain.
    3. Handpick a fan remix or two and play it on air. Same with the featuring of unheard artists like you did through your blog 1-2 shows ago.
    4. New album progress, projects your working on (including ones we did know) etc.
    5. A third phone line. When you had two, they got congested real quick.
    6. Live on air contest for those who are listening in while its recorded.
    7. Wear a try the ketchup shirt during the webcam stream :P.

    -Derek

  143. argol8489 on December 8, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    information about “power of the word”, more phone calls, comment on the best and worst moments of linkin park in 2011, what are your plans for this new year? Will you come back to do some design with DC or some other brand of shoes? Will you ever return to see you without a beard? What do not you like to receive Christmas gift?

  144. Nina Nine on December 8, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    Hey mike! Thanks for ask our help. I start to saying that I really love LPRadio, I can’t listen every day, but I listen every time I can. I love the music, and I love your comments, maybe you can talk more about MFR and Power The World, I follow in fb, and I share every time, but some time the people not have mood to read this things, I don’t why. But when the people hear it, keep it inside his minds and apply with out think it.
    But, I really love LPRadio. THANKS FOR DO THIS WITH US. YOU’RE LOVELY.
    PS: I’m sorry for my bad english, I’m argentinian, and I stiil learning… :)

  145. vickykun on December 8, 2011 at 7:12 pm

  146. vickykun on December 8, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    Questions huh? so…
    Obviously I was wondering about the new album.
    Is it done?, is it flowing , or…What?
    I wanted to know How are you doing too. Are you taking care of your health?
    You could give some hot tips about new bands and singers.
    And my last question is: When you´re coming to Brazil? We already miss you ;.;

    kiss kiss

  147. purnamalp on December 8, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    I live in Indonesia, and iHeartRadio not available here :( , please make it available Mike :)

  148. Gonzalo Martin on December 8, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    Hey Mike, this is a question for your radio program.
    As you know, the fanbase you have in South America is bigger day after day. What about a LPU summit over here? maybe in Buenos Aires? or the place you waht.

    Ideas,
    You could bring to some well known person from MFR or someone related with PTW to talk with the audience and help us to help.

    You can bring Joe hahn to the radio, that would be very funny. Specially if we can talk with him.

    You can sugest “topics of the day” and we can debate or give our opinions about that, in a special area like facebook or somewhere in LPU.

    Hope this helps :)

    – G. Martin
    [Linkin Park Argentina]

  149. konasa on December 8, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    give us your information of your life (like new album etc….)

  150. jessica74 on December 8, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    You guys always make me laugh, so whatever you choose to talk about I’m sure I will enjoy it. I loved the itunes playlist podcast you did with Chester. You two cracked me up! It was cool to hear the music you like and grew up with.

  151. trini001 on December 8, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    How about access for countries of the Caribbean, namely Trinidad and Tobago, please.

  152. parry13 on December 8, 2011 at 3:46 pm

    Yeah!! I support about the gossips of the band, the people need more information of your life.

  153. cxhxaxs on December 8, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    Mike PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, could you broadcast to Scotland, I am a UK LP member and cant listen, UK fans dont get the same privileges as the USA fans ie: radio/competitions etc.
    you do so much for the world, please can you do the same of UK who follow you and the rest of the world? thanks x

  154. 筱田の友 on December 8, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    how about some debate? or discussion? plz let me know if you’re on. will you do it tomorrow? because many ppl are not available these times. weekend is better. thank you.=]

    1. You know so many interesting people, have one as a guest. Maybe someone who works for MFR, a visual artist you like, or anyone else who can tell us some interesting stories about their life/work.
    2. Talk to the fans via Chat/phone. Life communication is always funny.
    3. Talk about your 2011 e.g. your experiences with the band, with MFR and the UN, your favourite albums/songs/artists/shows/books etc…. of 2011.
    4. Give us some names of bands/artists that you think will be big in 2012.
    5. Give my blog a shoutout. I know it’s pretty bold to just ask like that, but no guts, no glory. So click my name and do it.
    6. Play the new LP single which will be out in early 2012 ;-D

    Any Funny Moments That Happened When LP First Started

  157. duragon on December 8, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    Hobby talk, guest hosting from the band (since it’s LPradio) Live studio sessions. Showing of unreleased songs and demos, not included in the LPU cd’s.
    Phone calls to call randoms and wish them happy holidays!
    Live equipment testing. CHRISTMAS STORY TELLING! SANTA SHINODA CLAUS!
    Recomendations to movies, bands. Find random music of garage bands and promote them thru ur channel =)

  158. michelle2014 on December 8, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    USTREAM!

  159. Alina on December 8, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    You should tell little stories/adventures/funny things that happen with you while touring or when LP hangs out together.

  160. kathyxx on December 8, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    *stabs dark*

    Game show? XD

  161. yomarqueslp on December 8, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    Great news! I really liked those phone calls, it would be awesome to do it again.
    Can you give us any info about the new album?
    And, as many people have mentioned already, it would be nice if iHeartRadio was available worldwide :)

  162. tomodachi89 on December 8, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Please talk about the LP intern responsibilities of the band members. Like Rob being in charge of the set lists, Joe for touring etc.

  163. bleedinggreen62 on December 8, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    Bring in MR. HAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHNNNNNN!

  164. anaphx on December 8, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    - Have you ever went shopping at Abercrombie&fitch / Hollister?

    – Have you ever done Cow-tipping?

    – How can you handle all the jetlag, performing, interviews… Do you work out and eat healthy or do you have to take sleep aid?

    – American Pop Music changed / turned into dance/house music like in europe. How do you see the “change”/”progress” of the new mainstream music?
    (Like rihanna using dubstep elements, pitbull with house… and David guetta’s influence)

    A lot of european DJ’s collaborate with american artists, is there one you would like to work with?

    I would love to hear a song from you (expect numb/encore) in the club. Fedde Le grand, Avicii.. all good DJ’s :)

  165. anvanoppens on December 8, 2011 at 12:49 pm

    Last time was unforgettable!

  166. anvanoppens on December 8, 2011 at 12:49 pm

    More phone calls while recorded on LPU chat!

  167. trey57 on December 8, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    Oh and what kind of effects pedals do you use for your keyboard? I’m starting up a band where I sing and do keyboards, but I want to have distortion/various effects at the ready, but I have idea where to start…

  168. Tappirware on December 8, 2011 at 11:53 am

    ummmm, yeah please make it available in all countries..
    why it only in US?? Last year it still can heard,
    so please make it across the universe *wew

    -indra permana | Indonesia-

  169. lpsoul on December 8, 2011 at 11:50 am

    I know you probably can’t make this happen at the moment but it’d be great if iheartradio was available worldwide ^~^

  170. lillyhfg on December 8, 2011 at 11:49 am

    Another idea:
    make a top 10 list of your favorite songs of 2011. :)

  171. Pandayna on December 8, 2011 at 11:24 am

    Since we’re counting down until 2012, why not update with some of the greatest songs & artists of the year? Or feature a handful of totally-awesome holiday songs (i.e. Stone Temple Pilots’ live version of Christmas Time Is Here).

    Q&A’s with the fans and LPU chats are always fun. Updates with the band, MFR, and progress with the new album would be appreciated as well.

    As far as interaction with the listeners, maybe an online poll or survey of popular music would help. Not mainstream ‘pop’-ular, but more like a ‘fan favorites’ type of thing. It might throw a bit of positive subjectivity into the mix.

  172. cristiann88 on December 8, 2011 at 11:11 am

    Metric songs! handshakes! :D

  173. kosrobot on December 8, 2011 at 10:58 am

    Tell us about a bird from you Flickr :D
    What is it? :D

  174. marikobawi on December 8, 2011 at 10:57 am

    Some explanation on what music instruments are going to be explored for Linkin Park’s next album. Are you guys interest to explore traditional music instruments from other country to be mixed with your current genre?

  175. leila_lp on December 8, 2011 at 10:54 am

    Thanks God! It’s still working in Russia! Guys, don’t frighten me so much anymore please

  176. leila_lp on December 8, 2011 at 10:49 am

    Well…. How do you think..social networks.. how it affects the relationship between band and fans? Affects for better or for worse? And yes, make it available to other countries again, if it’s possivle :(

  177. george23wagner on December 8, 2011 at 10:46 am

    My ideas:

    – You should interview some artist
    – Power the World Project, the progress.
    – A Contest? Picture, Music, etc.
    – should play some music. Like M86

    Question: You’re getting older and older. Did you have any plans after LP? :P

  178. sagback on December 8, 2011 at 10:45 am

    I think you should interview your each band mates about new year projects or what they expect from 2012 :D and ask them little hard questions that you know before :D ^_^ or call some celebs -who are your friends- to ask for their upcoming tours or past :D

    also I will like what you do :D

  179. gustina05 on December 8, 2011 at 10:44 am

    Hey Mike some of us really want to know about a new album! I guess you guys are working on something…can you tell us??

  180. michelle2014 on December 8, 2011 at 10:43 am

    DO A USA SUMMIT……IT WOULD BE AWESOME

  181. lillyhfg on December 8, 2011 at 10:41 am

    Maybe you should make a list about the funniest things what you’ve ever got from your fans. :)
    thx, Lilla

  182. meglp on December 8, 2011 at 10:37 am

    umm i live in Europe so id like to be able to listen to LPradio :D also id like to know what is your favourite album by any artist? :D

  183. tulikachy on December 8, 2011 at 10:34 am

    And yeah! PLEASE make it available in all countries!!!! :(

  184. tulikachy on December 8, 2011 at 10:32 am

    A LOOOOONG LPU chat…then maybe some interview with ol of u guys…

    and u knw maybe you tellin us some story of yours relatd to the songs or d reason y you love the songs you r playin on d radio :)

  185. A.Jay.D on December 8, 2011 at 10:27 am

    You should release an exclusive instrumental and have a contest to see who can make the BEST song out of it. Play the songs on air and vote in groups. Then do some crazy challenge for the 2 finalist.

  186. vladikmmm on December 8, 2011 at 10:24 am

    Hey Mike. You don’t think that Linkin Park Radio want to hear not only in the U.S.?

  187. kristinabe on December 8, 2011 at 10:20 am

    about implementation of projects MFR
    What will be done during the project Power The World?
    for me as the ecologist , it will be interesting

  188. therosko on December 8, 2011 at 10:19 am

    …but since it is a radio station, just let us hear some good music. Maybe songs that not every people knows. It does not have to be from 2011, but something new for us. In fact are love the music you are playing :) and the last thing that I have on my mind is that you could record short interviews with other artists (maybe painters, i think you used to do that anyway) cause some people are interested in art and for example I would love to see something new and get to know artists I have never heard of.
    I hope I helped at least a bit!
    Keep up the good work!

    – Rossi from Bulgaria

  189. schennj on December 8, 2011 at 10:19 am

    Hey Mike, what keeps you motivated to find new ways to help regions and countries in need of supplies and shelter?

    -Schen

    P.S. I still want a NYC summit. :D

  190. drichester on December 8, 2011 at 10:17 am

    Besides the music, you could interview some artists! What do you think?

  191. therosko on December 8, 2011 at 10:14 am

    I know that many of your fans are interested in your side-projects. Maybe it would be interesting if every one of you told a short story about his? You have painting, designing, DBS, FM, etc. You could make a separate page where everyone could post questions on a specific topic (for example your art) and then you could read the questions and respond. Something like that… The LPU chat when people were able to call you was great (even though I am still disappointed that the female merch idea is probably never going to work out). Many fans loved it. You could use that in the future again. You could also give advices on what music equipment to use (since many fans are musicians themselves)…

  192. andyslinkinparker on December 8, 2011 at 10:14 am

    Hey Mike. I just now registered only to add comment here:)) because I suppose you will see this comment.
    1)Talk more about your process on your upcoming album.
    2)Please make another LPU Free-pass weekend :)
    3)Please,please,please, on your next tour,please come to CYPRUS!! We are the same with Greece,but you never came :(( Linkin Park has a lot of fans in Cyprus!

    Thank you.
    Andys:)

    (I was at the iTunes Festival,front line,and I made a handshake with you =DD )

  193. evooba on December 8, 2011 at 10:12 am

    May I suggest a few songs? Maybe play a bit of Rise Against, Avenged Sevenfold and maybe some more of Manchester Orchestra? Oh oh…and maybe the new GBC song “Poppin’ Bottles” featuring Gilbere Forte or the Wretches Remix, pretty please? :D

    A few insights on the new album would be great too ;)

  194. Shinoda's Army on December 8, 2011 at 10:09 am

    Ask other band members to talk too so we can hear them a little (Dave, Rob, Joe, Brad), tell us how your taste in music changed since 2000, share your favorite songs and suggest various genres as you did before, suggest bands/ artists, talk about various topics of public interests, ask to support MFR (many of your fans aren’t on Twitter), talk about sports you like, share informations about the band or recent updates, share impressions of tours and wich were the best years of your career/ episodes on tour, talk about The Raid, future projects…

  195. brox2lp90 on December 8, 2011 at 10:08 am

    I agree with the others below. Maybe a slight update on how the new album is coming along. Also, a surprise visit to the LPU chat would be nice. Just please don’t announce it on your Twitter! As far as an idea for iHeart Radio, it would be great if they could have it as an app on Xbox LIVE. I don’t know if there’s anyone higher up that you could speak to about proposing the idea, but it would be a great one, and you would be able to compete with Last.fm. :P

  196. tlpfan on December 8, 2011 at 10:07 am

    to diabloanton: you serious? he’s not anyone’s toy and the other LP bembers either. stop being interested in their PRIVATE life and focus on their music, that’s what they are there for.

    btw Mike, do anything you want, you’re always very appreciated. the last LPU chat with you at the radio was very cool for example, but I like everything you guys do. thank you!

  197. Claudia B. on December 8, 2011 at 10:07 am

    I think some never-before said stuff, and some exclusive sneak peak songs/demos you guys have been working on for a while would be nice :)

  198. shivani94 on December 8, 2011 at 10:06 am

    i cant listen to iheart radio anymore… but that was pretty cool…they’ve stopped it in India…whats da matter? :C Ideas could be like… why not try out some international music this time?, something like classical or typical regional music..!

  199. kelly jean on December 8, 2011 at 10:06 am

    Also you should have Mike Shinoda radio because I agree a lot or the stuff is indie and not similar to LP. I LOVE it but it might turn off listeners that want music very similar to yours

  200. jorenderidder on December 8, 2011 at 10:04 am

    Interview and play some music of support acts you toured with troughout the years. Also of side projects. I would love to hear some more info about delta fiasco for example.

    Give some more info about bucket of weenies from chester. The songs they played. Not only the covers but some HQ-music of the song written by band members

    Call kroq instead of them calling you and ask them why they still use “the world famous kroq” but don’t stream international anymore.

  201. amandakbp on December 8, 2011 at 10:04 am

    It would be nice you tell stories about the tour of A Thousand Suns since it ended. You always have something cool to tell, Mike :)

  202. calessi on December 8, 2011 at 10:03 am

    make it available to UK again. it was originally but now all you get is not available in your country then you would get wider audience

  203. ivanastahov on December 8, 2011 at 10:02 am

    by the way, another LPU Chat idea is great, but it will be better if you’ll use Skype .instead of normal phone.

  204. aline4lp on December 8, 2011 at 10:01 am

    What about “This or That” question sessions with the band members? That would be fun ;)
    I also have two questions: Do you think there will be a tour before the release of the next album, or afterwards?
    Second: Have you already worked on (or ideas for) the album artwork?

  205. kelly jean on December 8, 2011 at 10:00 am

    P.S you could always read your hilarious twitter mentions. Of course don’t tweet about this though

  206. emzlp123 on December 8, 2011 at 10:00 am

    It’s really unfair now cause they no longer let you listen outside the US, so I won’t be able to listen to anything new anyway ;-(

  207. ivanastahov on December 8, 2011 at 9:59 am

    Live recordings. From Red Square, for example…
    By the way, will you release DVD from that show? we know that full show record exist, and hope to see it someday…

  208. linkinparkette on December 8, 2011 at 9:59 am

    oh what about u take callers to ask for songs to play on the radio and have them talk about the songs and why they like them :3

  209. nettie21 on December 8, 2011 at 9:59 am

    Some infos about the new album would be great. But I like to hear about your artwork. Are you working on something now, or how is it working with you? You just creat what you want, anytime you want it… pictures and things…

  210. EpicLinkinPark on December 8, 2011 at 9:59 am

    Probably more phone calls, I agree with Ally. Also, I have a question. . If you could make a video game into a movie, which game would you choose and why? Personally, I would choose Zelda: Ocarina of time. Lots of people including me, are waiting for this movie to happen. I know your a video game buff, thought you would like that question.

  211. AndyMC on December 8, 2011 at 9:57 am

    mmm
    Do you like some music in spanish if yes which?

    Some Mexican food that you like

    Some memorie of the A Thousand Suns World Tour

    The best moment of that tour=)

    att.

    Andy MC-México

  212. abelota on December 8, 2011 at 9:57 am

    You should sleep more, I can’t see your red eyes…
    And about radio… Why did you turn on basically just indie??

  213. kelly jean on December 8, 2011 at 9:56 am

    Inerview Skylar Grey and/or play her song Dance Without You ;)

  214. anacrisbennoda on December 8, 2011 at 9:56 am

    You can do whatever you want :D

  215. sodhipop on December 8, 2011 at 9:52 am

    Any updates on the latest album progress is always nice. Or maybe some funny/interesting stories from the studio you could share?

  216. julienstrong on December 8, 2011 at 9:51 am

    You should give (more?) anecdotes about the process of creation of your albums, or from your live shows, and maybe call some guys from the band because they haven’t much been heard on LP Radio… Oh, and keep up the good work Mike!

  217. aberu on December 8, 2011 at 9:51 am

    One the past question. In your “Diamonds, Spades, Hearts, Clubs” art exhibition in 2006, why some pictures were not included in your book?

  218. Ally on December 8, 2011 at 9:51 am

    Taking more phone calls would be fun to do again.

  219. diabloanton on December 8, 2011 at 9:50 am

    What I can say? You must doing more music, or… oh i know, you can talk in the radio, about the members of LP, for example, his life’s, girlfriends, house… Haha
    gossip of LP !
