Commercial radio stations across the UK are to put aside their rivalries on Monday morning to play a special version of Simple Mind's "Don't you forget about me" – as the campaign to find missing baby Madeleine McCann continues. The song, mixed by GCap Media has been distributed by IRN's RadioDirect facility.
John Perkins, managing director at IRN, who have supplied some of the news clips which are mixed into the song says it's a good example of the industry working together: "All the stations are to combine and create one hugh audience and impact on Monday morning. It's similar to how commercial radio worked together for Radio Aid", he told RadioToday.co.uk
"The idea started around two weeks ago by Dream 107 presenter Nick Hull who first contacted RadioCentre to see if the idea could work – they then contacted GCap and it continued from there," John added.
If any commercial radio station has not received their copy of the song, please contact Kevin or Julia at RadioDirect on 020 7430 4093. Or alternatively we can provide an MP3 copy for download. Just [email protected] Radio Today and we'll send you the details.
