COOL FM Interview!
On Monday 9th June, Quiz Britain’s Managing Director popped in to Benidorm’s COOL FM for a ‘live’ interview with their resident DJ Ashley Price.
Now as all the listeners in the Costa Blanca knows, Ashley’s wit and easy radio banter is legendary. Most days you can here his interviews with celebrities who are in ‘town’, but today was Quiz Britain’s chance to elbow them out the way to have an interview to discuss the launch of Quiz Spain on the show.
Unknown to Ashley or the COOL FM crew, our team had lost their bearings in the many skyscrapers that dominate Benidorm. With our photographer in tow, time was marching on and the interview loomed ever nearer…….
The planned brief at 12.45 was now ‘out of the window’ and a final frantic email to Darren at the studios gave us a heads-up to the studio whereabouts. When you consider that our MD had been there in April, maybe a ‘senior moment’ had taken place!
A taxi and quick jog got them in the studios at 13.10 hrs as Enrique’s new single Baby Come Back To Me’ was playing in the background. Quite fitting as it turned out!
So no rehersal, or pre-talk and straight into it. Talking about exciting new ideas to promote quizzing in Spain, as well as hint at who might be the new face of Quiz Spain you’ll just have to listen to the interview!
A big thankyou to Darren Duncan for the ‘heads up’ and Ashley Price for making the interview happen in the first place!
It almost didn’t happen at all!
