WFBC Hosts 'Cups' Reenactment -- On Much Larger Scale
April 30, 2013 at 3:55 AM (PT)
Pop culture followers are well aware of the "cups" phenomenon - performing a song using only plastic solo cups and hand claps to create the music. It was brought to the big screen by ANNA KENDRICK, who performed the song "When I'm Gone" using that technique in the film "PITCH PERFECT" (the actress had actually discovered the concept though a viral YOUTUBE video).
Flash forward to this past SUNDAY, where ENTERCOM Top 40 station WFBC (B93.7)/GREENVILLE attempted to take things to the proverbial 'next level.' PD TIAS SCHUSTER told ALL ACCESS, "In radio, we like to find a 'parade' to jump in front of. Well, that parade was viral and online already. We simply asked our listeners to show up and show off their skills! We invited our listeners to the BILO CENTER and filled the floor with cup holding percussionists. Hundreds attended and the video is about to explode on YOUTUBE!"
Watch for yourself here.
