Kerrang! Radio will be marking the forthcoming apocalypse by counting down to the moment all life on earth will be extinguished.
In addition, all Christmas songs on the station are banned, with Programme Director James Walshe telling RadioToday.co.uk: “They’re all crap anyway”.
The 5000-year-long Mayan calendar ends on December 21st 2012 so the radio station’s entire playlist will be taken over by listeners, who will request the songs they’d most like to hear before the world ends.
In the countdown to midnight, presenters, staff and listeners will await the coming of the eternal darkness at a nearby bar where presenter Johnny Doom is broadcasting live.
On the night, one pair of lucky listeners will get the chance to win a place in their own secure bunker in which they will be expected to reproduce and save the human race from extinction.
