A Summer Umbrella Deserves A Summer Song
Z-102.9 in Cedar Rapids did a great Sumbrella (TM pending) with "Best Summer Ever". And their station band even did a tune for it.

If you are a US station it is inevitable that you were at a festival or event on the 4th. After 9/11 stations like Star in San Diego and KDWB in Minneapolis hastily organized human flags. You need a grid on the ground, a few hundred participants and red, white and blue cards. This has never ever not gotten a front page photo. And you have Veterans Day on November 11th to get ready for.
Jerry Miller, Insultant To The Stars
Jerry Miller is my alter ego. He is what Tony Clifton was to Andy Kaufman. He was a one-time bit with the morning show at 98PXY when Steve O who is now at KDWB was there. He asked me to leave a vm as a dbag morning show consultant. I did. Phones blew up. He asked for another one. A week later the audience wanted to track me down and kill me.
I've done "Jerry" 18 times and he's 18-0. To the point that I have to change the name every time because, as in the case of Hot in Ottawa, they Googled and found evidence that it had been done as a bit.
He's back and doing it on a major market morning show this week. The GM's email is blowing up with listeners begging her to fire "me". This is from the morning guy's FB page:
When lilstening to the consultant's voice mail today, I got a little offended. As a listener, I don't ever want to hear someone say, that no one cares about what the listeners have to say. It really upset me. Don't they know, if it weren't for us listeners, there would be no station? Keep doing what you do!
Omg I just heard that guy you had on the radio wtf? I'm with you and (cohost) he's a (bad word) I love listening to you guys
