CUMULUS Country WKHX (KICKS 101.5)/ATLANTA got in on the APRIL FOOL'S DAY action today with the help of CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist DARIUS RUCKER.
RUCKER joined WKHX morning team CADILLAC and DALLAS to unveil his new reality stunt show entitled "I Double Dog DARIUS You" and recruit KICKS listeners to be a part of the pilot episode filming in ATLANTA. RUCKER asked listeners who would be willing to participate in stunts like sky diving into TURNER FIELD, bungee jumping off of the SKYVIEW FERRIS WHEEL, and swimming with sharks at the GEORGIA AQUARIUM to apply for his show via the station website.
When listeners went to the website to apply, they were greeted with a video message from RUCKER revealing the gag. "APRIL FOOL'S, Kicks Country!" declared RUCKER via the video. "I don't really have a crazy reality show ... but I do want to see you at my show! Click the link below to enter for your chance to see me in concert on [THURSDAY], MAY 21st and meet me backstage with my friends at KICKS 101-5!"
