Valentine's Day dog stunt at Free Radio
Free Radio presenters Foxy & Giuliano hosted what they call a radio first this morning – a dog wedding.
The Valentine’s Day event saw Rufus and Lady tie the knot in a special ceremony after the story unfolded on-air across the last week, with the dogs enjoying dates at the cinema, a ‘stag-do’ at the local dog track and a pamper day at local pooch parlour for the ‘hen-party’.
The whole thing was officially overseen by registrar Anne Clark and an Elvis impersonator sang the classic “Hound Dog” for the first dance.
Meanwhile, at Free Radio in the Black Country, Fresh & Cat helped Lindsay Beddows propose to her long term boyfriend Gerard Fletcher by securing an advert on Europe’s biggest digital poster site that stands beside the M6 in Walsall. Gerard from Wolverhampton said “I’ve known this lady for over 20 years and she never fails to amaze me. What she has done for me today is incredible. The answer is most definitely – yes!”
And in Worcester Hursty & Helen helped deliver flowers for loved ones in the city, taking them via shuttle bus and celebrated local businesses that were still open braving the weather for Valentines night. In Coventry, JD is about to become best man for a listener, a listener he’s only met once and that was at the suit fitting.
JD announced on-air that he’d never been a best man and Groom-to-be Gav from Bedworth rang in and offered him the chance to step in.
Group Editorial Director David Lloyd said “Valentine’s Day means different things to our listeners across the patch, one thing’s for sure, today proved that there’s Never a Dull Moment at Free Radio”.
