The Best Admin Pro Day Bit Of 2013
From the always cool Rewind 94.9 in Cincinnati where they opened up the phones and played anything under the premise, "People tell you what to do all the time, now, you tell US what to do." Crystal Waters "100% Pure Love"? C'mon. That's awesome.
One Of The Best Publicity Stunts That Got Thwarted By An International Crisis
Some little known history in this piece about the iconic TV show "Rocky & Friends". http://www.minnesotafunfacts.com/minnesota-in-mass-media/television-shows/the-rocky-and-bullwinkle-show/ If you haven't renamed something for some buzz, do it. K-102 changed Brooklyn Park (suburb of Minneapolis) to Garth Brooks-lyn Park when he was in town maybe 15 years ago. One of the Pamal stations in Albany took over a little town on an island in the river as a Tax Day thing. Keep your eyes open for these opps. They're fun.
Divorcing A Friend
I heard this very reminiscent-of-Seinfeld thing on a station yesterday. A listener has a long time friend who had just sucked the life out of her. This person is just a drain on her emotionally and she doesn't know how to break it off. So the morning guy is going to.
From the minds at C-95 in Saskatoon, this on-line gallery contest will have listeners submitting photos of their dads who they believe look like a celebrity. As Chris Taylor at Flinn in Memphis would say: winner winner chicken dinner. Could also be done as something for Mothers Day if only as an excuse to say "mommygangers".
We're about ten days away from this starting somewhere. It's the "tag" contest where you have to know the name of the previous winner to win, and the next person has to know your name, etc. ad nauseum. In this case, they'll be winning tanks of gas. Remember: "gas card" emasculates a great sounding prize. Use semantics and try to make it sound big.
