Ain't Patricks Day
This is one of those Gift From God Weekends: no gnashing of teeth or stretching of premise. It's St. Patrick's Day. All you need to do is acknowledge that and you're cool.
One of the stations has Miley tickets and part-timers on the air. You COULD do "Ain't Patrick's Day. Because discrimination by race and gender in your state are illegal BUT you can still hate on people because of their name, then ban any winners named Patrick. Why? Because you SUCK and we CAN.
Inmate Or Playmate
Sarah Pepper at Hot in Houston has been reading dating profiles from meet-an-inmate.com and from non-prisoner dating sites. ID the subject as one or the other to win.
I heard a DJ at one of the other stations in town give a mention to "one of our regular listeners, listening on line at (website) in Belarus."
Okay. That's kinda cool. When 98PXY in Rochester started steaming, they had a globe on the website where little logos appeared where people were listening in from. Again, it was a KILLER visual.
When I went to China for our second adoption, I brought some station bumperstickers and placed them and took photos. (the Wild/Tampa sticker on a highway overpass in Nanjing almost got me arrested and 30-40 years in a penal colony harvesting organs)
What...if you did a graphic with a logo, superimposed on a globe, that your worldwide listeners could download and shoot at vibing local spots?
Co-Worker Jill from the Clifton Radio/Greenville Bureau took me to a cool little bar on some island near Charleston. The wall was covered with photos that people had taken of their drink coasters, all over the world. In front of a pyramid. With the Eiffel Tower in the background. In Pisa. Again, why not a radio station? We're a lot more global than a bar in South Carolina.
