When a fan of a 96.2 The Revolution offered to write its name in the snow bosses at the station weren’t expecting what happened next.
The listener, Tristan Wood from Shaw, spent three days in a large snow-covered field spelling out the station’s name, frequency and slogan in giant 12 foot letters.
Station Manager John Evington is delighted with the unexpected voluntary contribution to the station’s marketing drive: “The image lies right in the flight path of Manchester airport and we’ve received several telephone calls from bemused passengers who’ve spotted it from the air.
"The old mill building in the background contains the offices of Littlewoods Shop Direct in Shaw and a worker there, Peter Webster, independently sent the station a photo of Tristan’s work taken from one of the windows."
Revolution owner and Breakfast Presenter, Steve Penk, has been encouraging others to follow suit while the snow remains. “It’s great to be back on truly local radio where listeners have real passion for the station”, said Steve, “Tristan’s display of loyalty to The Revolution is to be commended and we really appreciate the extra publicity”.
