WBUL Holds Hot Air Balloon Chase For Swift Tickets
April 21, 2010 at 9:09 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Country WBUL/LEXINGTON, KY morning team JD and DeANN gave away backstage meet-&-greet passes and front-row tickets to see BIG MACHINE star TAYLOR SWIFT at the RUPP ARENA in LEXINGTON on APRIL 29th in a unique way this week. A member of the morning show was sent up in a hot air balloon while live on the air and streaming video from the balloon.
The balloon could be seen for miles and the first listener to reach the balloon when it landed was to be the big winner. The balloon was in the air for an hour-and-a-half and there were over 20 people on site as the balloon landed. Many more listeners showed up just a little too late and a random drawing was done to break the 20-person tie.
