Planet Rock follows charity ride on Audioboo

Digital radio station Planet Rock is using Audioboo to provide regular updates on a charity motorbike ride across North America.

Members of the band Thunder are among a small group taking part in the Hands Across The Water ride, with lead singer Danny Bowes filing audio reports back to the station for broadcast daily on the breakfast show.

The ride on Harley Davidsons – a 900 mile route through British Columbia and Idaho – started yesterday (Sunday) and is due to finish on Friday. Thunder’s Danny Bowes, Luke Morley and Ben Matthews are joined by Peter Shoulder from The Union and 25 bike enthusiasts. They’re doing it to raise money for Childline, with Thunder already having raised nearly £10,000 for the cause.

They’ll also be playing impromptu gigs in towns they visit along the way, and the ride will culminate in a ‘Battle Of The Bands’ style show in Ketchum, Idaho where the remaining members of Thunder will join Danny, Luke and Ben to play their first proper show together since they announced their temporary reunion earlier this year.

Danny’s ‘Boos’ will air each morning this week on Lucio’s Planet Rock breakfast show just after 8am, with plenty of web content available for listeners to follow the ride too. Planet Rock say it’s the first time that any radio station in the world has harnessed Audioboo’s technology in this way.
