CPR Promotional Check-Up - Jun 13, 2012
June 13, 2012
One of the stations is throwing "the ultimate" bachelorette party for a winner. There were no less than three BIG bachelorette parties at my hotel the other night. They were large, well-organized and raucous.
I'd send the guy(s) from the morning show out to tag along on one of these and get a glimpse at how the other gender celebrates one of these occasions. Kind of did this with Albie Dee when we were doing Friday Night Live at WPGC and he gave me the wheel, jumped out of the van and into a limo of women and did about 30 minutes on cell from the rolling party. Amazing-sounding Radio.
Dialing For Dollars
Airport shuttle vans seem to be a strange communal mobile lounge where people who would never normally talk to each other, open up. I'm talking to the guy behind me. He tells me that when he was in highschool, he played spots during Red Sox broadcasts on some little station in Maine. And that the biggest contest ever in that market was "Dialing For Dollars." DJ randomly calls someone from the phone book and if they know the dollar amount from the previous hour, they win it. If they don't, $20 or $50 or $100 is added on. The pilot in the back starts talking about how they used to do that game on TV in Atlanta. I was like "Yeah, Channel 11 used to do it during the Mid-Day Matinee in Minneapolis." The lady across the aisle says they did it on TV in San Diego when she was growing up. It faded away because fewer homes had someone at home during the day. But it was huge. People were glued to it, hoping for the phone to ring.
This could be resurrected with listeners e-mailing in their cell numbers, and choosing from those.
Booty Cruise XV
First of the year was last week at KDWB in Minny. What do you get when you take 300 (soon to be drunk) women and stick them on a party boat with 20 male strippers? You get a benchmark bit that will NOT go away. Pics are up at http://daveryanshow.iheart.com/cc-common/mainheadlines3.html?feed=336979&article=10186903
