A radio station in Oxford is taking a new direction with it's programming - they're gleeking out!
Targeted at the fans of the hit show, the once troubled student station FM107.9 is now becoming Glee FM. All day, a playlist of 80 songs all covered by Princess Lea Michele and her crew will play across the airwaves.
Program director Susan Carte says:
"The radio station had to keep to a remit that appeals to under 30s and we realized that to go for an all-Glee format completely fitted that…The response has been very divided. People are either in the Glee camp or they are not. Female listeners love it more than male. We will see how it goes. It is really in the hands of the listeners. We hope it will be very successful."
We think it might end up being a little fruitless and repetitive after awhile, but for right now, it might do fairly well. Plus, if they can get some of the Glee kids to call in every once and awhile, and maybe spice things up with the original songs that the show has covered, they might find some longevity.
Some, mind you. Not a lot.
