View Full Version : Music Help me come up with a new radio feature

09-03-2012, 09:05 PM
For the last 3 years we've done a feature on our morning show called "Fact or Bullcrap." My co-host and I ask each other 5 trivia questions and the other has to answer if it is fact or bullcrap. Winner (person who gets the most right)gets bragging rights for the week yadda yadda.

She won the first year overall, I won the second, she is bludgeoning me about the head and shoulders with a blunt object in year 3. She leads like 25 weeks to 7. (We do it once a week)

It's always been a popular feature and has many people who follow it and talk about it. That said it's always a good idea to refresh the show now and then and retire old things. The other thing is this is hard to replace, even though she owns me this year.

So I'm asking for ideas that maybe you guys/gals have heard on other stations that you find entertaining. Hell almost everything is recycled anymore.

And yes I know... I know... everyone here is far too cool to listen to commercial radio. It would make you less of a man/woman to admit that... I get it.

But maybe you've "heard" of something. I have a few ideas to replace it with at the first of the year but I'm not sold on any of them yet.

Thanks in advance.

These are straight up stealing from the podcast world, but;

Build a Title - each person must add to a movie title by adding at the beginning or the end of what came before with existing movie titles. ie,

the mighty duck-s-ome like it hot-to t-rot-ten dirty scoundrels

Leonard Maltin Game - like name that tune, but instead of seconds of music played as the bid, you bid on # of names, starting from the bottom of the list of stars of the movie

Movie Cats - competitors go around a circle switching between a movie starring someone and someone else starring in another movie. eg, Pulp Fiction - Samuel L. Jackson - Jungle Fever - Denzel Washington - Training Day - Ethan Hawke - Before Sunrise - Julie Delpy - etc, etc. The trick here is, if someone tries to stump you with an obscure cast member/movie , you can challenge them to come up with another movie or another cast member. If they can't, THEY'RE the one who loses a point.

BTW - those game names will almost certainly lead you, via google, directly to podcasts of people playing them so you can see how the flow of play works.

"Name that Philosopher." The radio hosts present a discussion of some of the basic concepts the philosopher wrote about. The clues get progressively easier. The winner gets a used copy of the philosopher's writing.

Or, you could make it political. "Dumb political fact of the week."

The real problem is that some people would look up the answer on google. Another possible problem is that people don't want to hear about politics.

Ah, reminds me.

"What am I thinking?"

Best with three or four people. Two people count down, 3, 2, 1, and immediately say what comes to mind. Then 3, 2, 1 and say what each thinks is 1/2way between the previous two words/phrases, over, and over, until both blurt out the same thing.

See which combo/team/config can match up the fastest.

Any delay after the '1' is a DQ, as is offering up hints before the countdown.

If its to personal and you don't want to answer you say none of your business and they win.

You don't. There's just a trust factor. Most of that stuff is pre-determinded and pre-recorded with an ending in the bag just waiting for someone to guess the right answer. If they are lucky enough to get it then good for them. Really that's just as random as actually spinning a

I've heard radio stations do "Wheel of" something or other. It's like how do you know what's actually happening?

FWIW I've worked at 9 different stations in 22 years and all have had a strict policy against "fixing" contests for a certain listener. If there's ever any fixing it's the other way... we have personal friends enter stuff all the time but I can tell you they aren't going to win. They don't know they're thrown out of the running for pretty much anything and they don't need to know.

1. We don't need any unfair claims coming back on us and

2. That person/people are already friends and are probably going to listen anyway. You don't build audience by catering to people you already know.

If I have 20 tickets to a show and a couple friends want to go and tell me in advance I might slide them a pair. The rest go to a fair promotion. If I only have a pair or two then they have no chance.

In the board game thread I posted a pic of the game Tribond. My idea comes from that game. What you do is name three things that all have one thing in common and people have to figure out what the common thing is.

Example: A car, a tree, an elephant

Answer: they all have trunks

Example 2: protesters, bowlers, pitchers

Answer: they all have strikes

You guys would obviously have to come up with more. You could also buy the game and use the cards from the game (hundreds of 'em)

The ones I hear in different markets are like, Name X many things in 30 seconds. Like, name 12 NL teams in 30 seconds, etc.
Or, they'll do a thing where they give the caller a choice of three topics. I mostly listen to sports, so it would be like, NBA, College Football or NFL. The caller picks a topic and they feed him trivia questions to see how many he can answer in a minute. Then the host answers as many as he can in a minute. If the caller answers more he wins.

You need a small segment in which the host describes a famous or important person's life and all of the trials and tribulations they went through.

At the end, the host needs to tell us who the person is, followed by "And that's.....the rest of the story...."

This is one of the funniest bits I've ever heard on radio. You are a country station so it wouldn't work in this format but you could do a different genre of music. The bit starts about 20 seconds into the video. It's called country psychic. The host gives his co host the name of a country song and plays him about 30 second of the intro and then the co host has to sing the song to a karaoke track having never heard it.

I remember one DJ getting on the air and saying that he was at such and such gas station an hour ago and bought a pack a gum and paid for it with a dollar. Then said the serial number of the dollar. If anyone brought him that dollar he'd give them $100. It must have got popular because soon he was reading off bunches of serial numbers a shift. Then they'd throw in a $5 bill once a week and give $500 for that. You could put the serial numbers online after you read them off to help with web traffic too. Give people a week to turn in and start again new the next week.

Sounds like your current "thing" doesn't involve the listeners, i.e. contests.

Are you trying to change that?

We've almost been over-contested this summer, that's not a problem actually. Just trying to freshen things up at the first of the year. Fact or bullcrap is popular even though it doesn't directly involved the audience. They do make fb comments and such and one guy gives me his "cheat sheet" each Wednesday morning to try to help me out since I've been sucking so bad lately heh.

I remember one DJ getting on the air and saying that he was at such and such gas station an hour ago and bought a pack a gum and paid for it with a dollar. Then said the serial number of the dollar. If anyone brought him that dollar he'd give them $100. It must have got popular because soon he was reading off bunches of serial numbers a shift. Then they'd throw in a $5 bill once a week and give $500 for that. You could put the serial numbers online after you read them off to help with web traffic too. Give people a week to turn in and start again new the next week.

Note to self... redo the budget for next year :D

If there was any way you could do a "Would You" segment on the radio, it would be huge.

LMAO That would be a win.

"Missed Connections"
You and your co-host could take turns reading some of the local Craigslist "Missed Connection" posts. She reads the female posts and you read the male posts, (obviously). However, you could mix it up on every Wednesday or some other day and reverse roles, (and adjust your voices accordingly). After each reading, use a funny "ooh la-la" type of sound bite.

One of the radio stations up here does something similar, (only they don't do the reverse roles thing - I came up w/ that twist).

Not sure that it would cost a bunch. I think a lot of people listened in and started hoarding $1's, but you have to find 1 dollar in circualtion to win. It's like the lotto. I guess it depends how big the city is. This was in San Diego at the time.

Yeah we aren't San Diego heh. Basically you budget that stuff or get a sponsor and they pay for it and get advertising in return. It's a neat idea, thank you.

My buddy was down in the dumps and actually got a date by using CL a few months back. He went on a date with the girl and later that night checked CL and there was a missed connect talking about him at a bar they went to saying 'I hope that's not your GF." Now, the MC here is very slow, especially for WSM. How in the hell do you get an MC when your on a date from CL??? When he told me, I thought it has to be that girl trying to see what he'd say in a reply about her. He called her out in a text, but she wouldn't admit to it. OF course, this mystery MC girl never met him in person.
