Get Happy with SPLAT!

Here’s something to smile about: the SPLAT! HAPPY emoji. Because we could all use a little extra happy right about now!

 

Front Line Radio

The rhythms of the world may be out of sync, but if you listen to radio, the beat goes on. Now, more than ever, radio is doing what it does best–adapting, enduring, and providing a vital link to spread support, information, and comfort to the community in a way no other medium can. The work is hard, but it’s never been more important. Radio is essential. And so are you.

Even better than free hand sanitizer

Hey gang, just a quick reminder to keep your imaging, promos and messaging up to date when it comes to anything dealing with the coronavirus.  As the situation changes, what was appropriate just a few days ago may not be today.  We know you know that, but wanted to send a quick reminder anyway.  If you’re in need of general scripts, below are more idea starters from your friends at SPLAT!  These were written mostly for AC or CHR formats, but they can be adapted for any format with just a few quick edits.

YOUR WORK AT HOME, PLAY AT HOME, PLEASE STAY AT HOME MUSIC VARIETY STATION.

Writing copy while “social distancing.” You can still stay close to your listeners.

In times like these music makes us all feel better and radio offers something extra that playlists can’t: emotions, empathy and shared human experiences…we’re all in this together.  While it’s never wise to joke about serious stuff, a tasteful, well-written sweeper can speak to the new daily experiences that we all have in common.  Here are a few (hopefully) non-offensive script ideas from SPLAT!  Feel free to use these, edit, adapt, improvise, improve, etc. Most of these scripts can work for just about any radio format.

Social distancing might keep us apart, but the music brings us closer together.

Your “work from home” hit music station.

Making your morning commute more fun… even if it’s just from the kitchen to the living room.

Your at work, at home, at home while you work station.

We’re out of hand sanitizer and wipes, but we have the most music in town.

We suggest washing your hands for the length of this next song.

We encourage you to keep your hands clean. You don’t even have to touch your radio. Just tell your smart speaker, “play my favorite station”

Divided by social distancing, united by sports.  This is where we can still gather to talk, and we’re taking your calls now. (for a sports station, of course)
