Stunting idea

Post by ftballfan » Mon Oct 14, 2019 9:00 am

With UAW on strike against GM with no end in sight, I feel that a radio station that is struggling should stunt with Christmas music, then either when the strike ends or December 26, whatever happens first, they should either flip to a new format or rebrand their existing format.

You could also do actually have staged phone calls, people calling in saying why there on strike in there own way.

" Blake From Southfield, Your on 93.1, What are you on strike about?" " My mom took my X box away and disconnected The WIFI, so I'm not gonna clean my room or do my homework I'm on strike"

" Sue From Gross point Woods, what say you?" " My stupid Neighborhood association won't let me put out my big plastic Santa that goes HO HO HO and Rudolf with the blinking nose, We had to make 2 new legs for him with paint sticks, because my sister ran over it with the car last year" . So I'm not paying my monthly dues, I'm no Strike"

" Todd From Monroe, Your on 93.1 The strike.. " " Hey.... city still hasn't picked up my leaves so I'm not gonna pay water bill" I'm on strike"

Maybe play only a few select songs. Like.. Workin in coal mine- Lee Dorsey , Sam Cooke- Chain gang, Go For a soda- Kim Mitchell, Take this job and shove it- Johnny Paycheck, Communication breakdown- Led Zeppelin, Wish I had a job to shove- Geezinslaw Brothers. LOL.

" The UAW workers are on strike, so are we at 93.1

I've been dreaming about a stunt forever, especially appropriate for a station leaving the AOR format.

A caller calls in (already set up) and requests the apocryphal "Long Version" of "Stairway to Heaven".

DJ cues Neil Sedaka's Stairway to heaven. That song has three long rests - join the last rest to the first, and the song can play indefinitely!

I have hit Quote button instead of Edit. It's happened a lot and it was always my fault.

LOL wow.

Since it's going to be Halloween!

Hell 106.7! "This is the sound of Hell"(in a demonic voice)

Play Type 0 Negative- Black No 1 , Alice in Chains- Grind, Iron Maiden- From here to eternity, Black Sabbath- NIB, and a few others.

Get someone to impersonate Satan and take calls.
