Karen Carson with Johnny Minge and Intern Anthony, WNEW-FM, New York with It’s Raining Men Ringtone

What radio is missing many places is a sense of silliness and frivolity.  Mischievous shows tends to make their audiences giggle with laughter.  Looking at something through those lenses will bring out the goofiness in a show.  Marry it to an opposite, include a family member, and you have a great recipe for a strategic, memorable break.  As in the case heard here by Karen Carson with Johnny Minge, and Intern Anthony, WNEW-FM, New York.  Anthony’s father is a longshoreman at the piers of New York City.  This is a man’s man’s job.  It’s hard, grueling work.  How does his father react when Anthony changes his father’s ringtone to the iconic Weather Girls song “It’s Raining Men”?  Silly and mischievous.  Here’s the story of how it all unfolded and Anthony’s father’s reaction.  An instantly memorable break.
