DELMARVA Adult Top 40 WSTW/WILMINGTON, DE's "The Wakeup Crew" with SPENCER GRAVES and NANCY JOHNSON launched their APRIL Fools prank YESTERDAY (4/1), by telling listeners "All major cell carriers use our towers. All have reported a virus that accesses your apps, contacts, texts, and call history. Text fix to 56221 to be on the list for repair."
GRAVES tells ALL ACCESS, "In addition we played 'LIFEHOUSE -- Hanging By A Moment, BRITNEY SPEARS -- Hit Me Baby, BACKSTREET BOYS -- Larger Than Life, NELLY -- Ride Wit Me and NSYNC -- Tearin Up My Heart, while RDS showed our actual playlist. We blamed it on the cell tower virus."
