If this thing ever comes to your market and you miss being in it, it would be a tragedy. 80,000 people in downtown Portland this weekend and Z-100's iHeart"plane" was built in conjunction with the Carpenters Union. At about :51 into the video, it's the pink thing that crashes immediately after takeoff. But, they were still voted 11th out of 46 flying machines.
Dad's In Drag, v15
Since the dawn of time when a lone caveman stumbled out of his, well, cave, in hopes of getting a better signal, "Dad's In Drag" has killed. It's a constant like Stuff The Bus and head lice. And Hot 99.5 in DC is bringing it back digitally for 1D. The caveman would be proud. http://www.hot995.com/contests/meet-one-direction/393188
Nothing great has ever been accomplished by people who were afraid to ask for outlandish stuff. Wild in SFO getting a free plane from United Airlines to fly water to LA after the earthquake? Most people would have never thought to ask. It took one call.
It is hopefully inevitable that one of the fast food chains will come to you with $$$ and ask for a promotion.
- Always ask, "Is there a way we could get the station played in all of your local stores?" What the Hell. Why not ask.
- Always ask, "Is there a way we could get on all your trayliners?" KUBE in Seattle asked and ended up getting "Match Game" on every McDonalds trayliner in western Washington State. To play their ratings contest, you needed to go and get a trayliner. Q in Memphis got a ski trip on Wendy's trayliners. Again, what is the worst possible thing that could happen: they say 'no'.
