CPR Promotional Check-Up - Feb 8, 2012
February 8, 2012
When Radio started using psychics back-in-the-day, it was really compelling. Cool questions. Some drama. Really kept you glued to your radio. 99% of calls now are so basic and stereotype that really, anyone can be a radio psychic. In fact, get me wasted and I'll do my dead-on impersonation. The standard question goes something like this: "I've been dating this guy for 17 years and he keeps saying he's going to leave his wife, and next month he was supposed to take me on a business trip with him to Hawaii. But last night he called and said that he has to go to Atlanta with his wife to see their son's doctoral thesis presentation at Emory. My question is, is he ever going to leave her?" The answer of course is "No, you homewrecking skank."
Surprisingly, considering that so many of the calls are about love and romance, I've never heard a station do a Valentines-specific psychic bit. Vic Bullis is OUTSTANDING. Reach out to her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Her website is www.victoriabullis.com
This is pretty damn cool. Mike McVay shares www.instasong.com . You go and create your own music. Perfect for Valentines Day. Which is nice because Hallmark doesn't have an "I Guess We'll Just Have To Be Friends" section that's geared towards old exchange students.
Short Attention Span Romance
Yet another Valentines option would be to introduce a couple on the morning show, have them go through all the stages of romance: introduction, getting to know each other, lunch, movie, dancing, break up in afternoon drive and never see each other again.
