The Millionth Request
You know how theme parks, malls, grocery stores and other high traffic clients will sometimes honor the "millionth customer" with a big surprise on the unsuspecting customer? One of the stations is doing The Millionth Request. They've been tracking the calls and soon, very soon, the millionth will come through. That person is going to get picked up, brought to the station and loaded down with prizes including a trip to see Rihanna in London.
Home & Garden Expos
Appear to be back with a vengeance. Two stations in the past week have needed "stuff". From the perspective of a dad, these are brutal things to take a couple of little kids to. So, why not do something for the kids who get dragged to this thing. Come to our booth and get an Eye Spy sheet and a crayon. They walk/are dragged around with their parents and look for stuff like "a bird house", "A roll of sod", "A man on a ladder". X them off and bring it back to the station booth for a balloon or a piece of candy as they leave. It's the same concept as car games to keep the kids occupied on driving trips.
This came up in a brainstorming session yesterday with a PD whowas telling me about how he'd done it at another station.
Basically, you take the morning person, you dress them as a turkey and let them loose on a ballfield or other ""wide open space". Listeners can buy five paintballs for five bucks and try to shoot him. Hit him and win a turkey or something else. All the money of course would go to charity.
Also, when doing anything like this, we want the recap video to be slowed down ala AFV and exaggerated "Ooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhs" and close-ups of the pellets popping on him.
Secret Santa v2
We've all done the thing where we send hoards of listeners to malls looking for the Secret Santa. And many of you have done Ten Secret Superstars. Brian Michael's from Lite Rock in Grand Forks' version would be to take ten Santas from movies, mash them up in a clip and ID them all for something like a fully trimmed tree and some presents to go under it. Genius.
