John and Tammy, KSON, San Diego Emma Knows Her Halloween Candy

With Halloween a few short weeks away, this is one of my all-time favorite breaks.  Halloween is a kid’s holiday, right?  And it’s all about candy!  Which is why John and Tammy, KSON, San Diego grabbed a cute kid of a co-worker (Emma) and had her read the ingredients of popular Halloween candy.  They played the audio for a listener who had to guess which Halloween candy Emma was describing.  You can hear audio of the execution of this fun idea below.  If you do this idea, two keys to its success are finding the right kid.  Also, don’t let them pre-read the ingredients before you record them.  Hearing the kid stumble over the big words adds to its cuteness.  If you find the right kid, record a bunch so you can do it a few times leading up to October 31.
