CPR Promotional Check-Up - Oct 13, 2015
October 13, 2015
K-Rock in Edmonton once took a listeners' basement and put $10,000 in electronics, music, bar and furniture into it and transformed the space into The Ultimate Hockey Viewing Room. If you have just an iota of an idea of how large hockey truly is in Canada, then you will know that this killed 100X over. K-102 in Minneapolis did something similar with an icehouse and Rock 102 in Fargo did it with a duck blind. And about 1000 Rock stations have done it with bathrooms as The Man Cave.
Station and a consortium of clients will take and redesign one listener's workspace to fit that person's dream motif. For me? It would be a throwback to any fort we built in 4th grade.
Step One: The contesting would be on-line with a video submission by a listener showing his/her cubical, interviews with coworkers and their employer. Also a hand sketch of what they'd like to see done. Ten station-chosen entries will be posted for voting. The most votes gets The Office Cave.
Step Two: A series of videos as our designer(s ) visit, look, measure and shop.
Step Three: The entire office is limo'ed to lunch and a movie and return for the unveiling, also captured ala "Extreme Home Makeover" on video for the final pay off.
Any office supply retailer like Staples, a restaurant, a design company or class from a college, a mall, and an appliance/furniture store.
"Manicure For The Cure"
From a station that, sadly, must remain nameless: Manicure for the Cure - Get local salons and day spas to donate their time and supplies for a marathon broadcast the 1st weekend in October at a client location. Ladies are encouraged to come to the client and recieve $5 manicures (which evidently is a huge bargain). Every penny will go to the Susan G. Komen foundation. Hoping that we'll raise lots of money, get some press and have one very happy client. Then 2 weeks later, we do another event called "Pedicure for the Cure"
"Monday Night Football"
NFL Squares For a bar or wing joint. First people in each get a square on the betting board, right before kickoff cards are dealt that assign numbers to the rows. You win based on 1st Q, half, 3rd Q and end-of-game scores. If this is gibberish, let me know and I'll explain it.
Monday Night Lites Title for any night sponsored by a Lite beer.
The MNFB Cliché Game Listeners come to the event and as they arrive, pull one of these randomly from a box. They win a prize whenever it's used.
