Despite our being just past the holidays, here’s a break from Lisa and Ray, US99.5, Chicago, that really excelled. Like many popular morning shows, the team was offered an interview with country legend Trace Adkins. Not content to just do a Q&A centered around his agenda, the team made the off-air ask and then wrote a Chicago version of the classic “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”. Trace consented and with his large, booming voice, read the poem in one of the breaks. We were uber local and affirmed our fun images. We always ask: what are we doing with this topic no one else thought to do? In doing so, we create an innovative moment which helps us bring the audience back again.
