We had a really fun Street School the other day and as always we handed out names to the 'teamers. "Kat" got hers because she looks like Kat Denning. "Po Po" got hers because the competition has called the cops on her THREE times. She's a keeper.
Ticket Bandit is great. Think of Fugitive(tm) but crammed into four or five days and based on the theft of front row tickets or backstage stages from the morning guy's desk. They did it for Taylor Swift tix in Cincy at Q-102. In Indy at NOU it was for Gaga. And it's coming back and is so simple and appt. time driven.
One of the stations had the opportunity to have a back-of-the-bus wrap. A giant, full-back piece of art. As opposed to just having a logo and music position, I suggested that the art be a reproduction of the front of the bus. With a determined looking driver and terrified looking passengers in the back. Under the "drivers window" would be a station busboard that said "(format) That Will Run Your Over". I'm kind of vague on who shot this down; either the transit company or the city. But c'mon: this is one of those things that would get you massive, ridiculous market buzz and would also get e-mailed to about 40,000,000 worldwide.

Boom in Toronto celebrated Pride in that market by doing eight hours of 80's anthems for the parade and festivities.
In the past week I've seen one print story and a bunch of social media pieces on the new trend of establishments doing painting parties. I read. I filed. I forgot. And this morning got an email from a station where they're going to sell some of these events hosted by the morning show. http://the-paint-pub.com/
