FLINN Top 40 WHBQ (Q107.5)/MEMPHIS turned the town on its "sexyback" with a major announcement FRIDAY (8/18) afternoon as KARSON & KENNEDY took over the afternoon show. KENNEDY found 25 pairs of extra JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE tickets for his SATURDAY (8/19) night show hidden in KARSON WITH A K's desk. It was then announced that WHBQ would be "Bustin' For Justin'" at 9a the next morning at a local gas station where they would give away 107 balloons, some of which had tickets in them. Listeners started lining up at 2a at the gas station to try and win the tickets for the sold out show at THE NEW DAISY on BEALE STREET!
On stage, JT thanked his friends and family in MEMPHIS including HUSTLE & FLOW director CRAIG BREWER and the listeners that bet their wedding dress and hair on 107.5 to win tickets. THREE 6 MAFIA also made a special appearance and performed with JUSTIN during the song "Chop Me Up" that will be featured on his new album, "FutureSex/LoveSounds."
