Fan E-Mail Website Turns Nobodies Into Stars In Their Own Minds

WASHINGTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You don’t have to be a celebrity to get fan mail anymore.

Mark Kaye – a Washington, D.C.-based radio disc jockey – has created a web service that e-mails fan letters to people’s inboxes to make them feel like a big shot celebrity.

Kaye says he’s used to getting fan letters from listeners and felt it would be nice if other Joe Schmoes could experience what it feels like.

The service is free. Users just log their e-mail on the site and after that, every few days, non-customized, generic fan letters are sent to their inboxes.

So far, Kaye says a couple thousand people have signed up – including a lot of folks from Denmark – and he claims that people have written fan letters back to him praising him for his fan mail system.

Kaye hopes people will take his word that he won’t sell his e-mail list to spammers.

In his words, “You’re not going to get additional Viagra spam mail from me.”
