    Okay everyone, we've got an idea and are hoping it is going to be a LOT of fun for everyone!

    The Idea:
    We all work together to create some really fun 30 second recordings / commercials for BYC. We'll then have a winning commercial aired on real radio stations that broadcast on AM and FM channels.

    The Goal:
    Have lots of fun!
    Spread the word about BYC
    Have more fun!

    The Plan:
    We want our super creative members to create their own 30 second radio commercial about BYC. You guys have total free creative license to come up with whatever you want. Once we get a handful of submissions we'll choose a winner and air it on the radio.

    We'll do all we can to find out where and when the radio spots will air so hopefully someone locally can record them or grab them from a stream from the radio station (if they have one).

    For those of you that want to join in the fun, but don't want to record yourselves, feel free to pitch in by posting your ideas on what the commercial should be, say, sound like, etc.

    We're hoping you guys will really have fun with this!

    So, what do you think? If you want to create a BYC radio commercial (by yourself or with friends or family) please post here and let us know!

    I'd love to, I sell my voice and don't have a choice of what I am advertising, I would absolutely love to do something I actually wanted to record! I'm digging out my mic as we type.

    Oh GOOODIE!!! Cant wait till DH gets to hear about this!!

    considering he already has a script worked out for GopherBoy.

    But I guess he will have to do 2 commercials, since the one his is working on is video.....

    this is a great idea....what fun!
