The Chubbtroduction Continues
Chubbs, the new morning host at Island 106 in Panama City continues to take on listener-picked local activities in his quest to be accepted as one of them. A Panamian Citian. Last week? He tackled The Verticle Accelerator.
The one thing that I've seen over all the years I've done this, is that #1 stations are always the ones who are open to trying something new. The lovely and odd(tm) Elizabethany at Hot 99.5 went out during the afternoon with a tablet and Periscoped a live shot of where she was. The first person to run up to her won front row 1D tickets.
An Oldie But Goodie
It worked so well 8 years ago that Cat Thomas has brought the Payroll Payoff back to Mix in Las Vegas. Disregarding all the legal mumbo jumbo, you listen for your name, call in and are on the payroll at $94 dollars an hour. If the next hour's listener doesn't call in, you stay on...and on...or off. http://mix941fm.cbslocal.com/mix-94-1s-payroll-contest
First Crack At Christmas
Toyz Noise One of the stations has a toy store that wants to do something. One of the greatest skills I've developed as a parent is to monitor my kids without actually having to deal with them, ie: sitting and working and listening to them make pipe bombs (for instance) in the other room. So this contest would test parent's abilities to ID their kids toys based on SFX. IE: shake the Boggle board, hear the letter cubes rattle around, call in, ID the game and win.
Ghost Of Christmas Passed Every adult has a toy that they never got as a kid and it's haunted them all these years. With eBay, everything is now available. If you have a slushfund or a client that wants to sponsor something, anything, at Christmas, make some listeners belated dreams come true. Write a letter to Santa Kane or Santa Ryan or Santa Mauler telling them what you always wanted. Go through and pick some that you can track down, and dressed as a drunk mall Santa, surprise these good little woman and men at work with their dream gift.
For the record, I always wanted to get a cool Matchbox parking garage with an elevator. But not one of the new fangled plastic ones, but the old school kind that was made of metal and had unprotected razor sharp surfaces that would filet you like a side of beef if you picked it up the wrong way.
