April Fools: A Recap
April 2, 2007 at 7:47 AM (PT)
APRIL FOOLS DAY seemed quiet this year due to it's arrival on a SUNDAY, but CPR's PAIGE NEINABER shares a few good radio ones with ALL ACCESS.
"ACE & TJ at WNKS (KISS 95.1)/CHARLOTTE did the "Pets By Mail" bit. www.petparcelservice.com is the link to the site that fake spots drove listeners to. The elephants are a great touch."
"Just as there’s no sex in the Champagne Room, there’s no nudism in the CAYMAN ISLANDS. No nudist beaches. Period. So BEN MAXWELL (formerly ROCCO THE JANITOR at WRWD/PHILADELPHIA) at 96.5 CAYROCK opened a nudist resort and the station broadcast from there. It sounded so real that I felt compelled to go and check out the website www.freedompointbeachresort.com in the middle of the afternoon, BEN got his old Sales Manager from PHILLY on the line and had him be a 'guest' drinking Kettle One martini’s in the Trousers Down Lounge."
"HOT 89.9/OTTAWA came to the rescue of parents with ugly babies. They ran spots for The Early Life Cosmetics Center: plastic surgery for babies. I have the spot if you’d like to hear it at www.Earlylifecosmetics.com."
And finally, "www.TattooYourToddler.com is the link to a website where parents can get their infants tattoo’ed. This piece of art was done by TROY DAYTON at WDAY-F (Y-94)/FARGO. Realistic? The competition tried to send a sales person to call on them."
