COX MEDIA Country WZZK/BIRMINGHAM and ‘sister’ station Classic Hits WBPT (EAGLE 106.9) hosted a “Request-A-Thon,” on MONDAY, MAY 9th from 10a-7p (ET), raising $7,000 for GOVERNOR BENTLEY’s EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND. Listeners made $50 donations in exchange for requests.
“This was a way to connect with our listeners through music and help the communities hit by the April 2011 storms,” said Promotions Director JUSTIN RAGLAND.
“Our goal was to raise five thousand dollars… we’re very pleased with the support from listeners. We said if we could find it, we’d play it. And we did. Independent stuff… BOB WILLS and the PLAYBOYS… even “Brick” from DAZZ,” said WZZK PD JUSTIN CASE.
