I was listening to John Reid who does the morning radio show on WRVA. Every Friday he does it from a different location in VA and said that this weeks show would be from Ireland at Busch Gardens Christmas Town. When he did one earlier this year from KD he had on lot of people talking about the history of the park. So this might be a fun thing to tubed into if you are up early.

I'm a bit confused. How will there be a morning show there, when the park doesn't open until 2 pm?
The show runs 6 to 10 so the park would be closed during normal hours anyhow. Obviously all setup well in advance with the park. Funny story when he did KD there was some mix up with the parks pr people not getting them cleared through security and they actually had to start the show from the parking lot till someone could get it straightened out. He went out of his way to praise park security and point out that it wasn't there fault but a snafu somewhere.

So it'll be a radio broadcast from the middle of an empty park? I'm not sure I see the point...

Can't see anything on radio, and nothing to hear

The point is
(1) The park gets low cost local marketing
(2) The show gets low cost local content

Interviewing Joe Random doesn't necessarily accomplish either of those. Neither does hosting a radio show sporadically filled with the background noise of screaming girls, crooning holiday singers, and prerecorded accordion music. Doing the thing when the park is empty makes a lot of sense in this case.

Not to mention the ability to have performers stop by and perform live without the show having to travel around the park.

I I really like the idea, that way park isn't open and would be a good time to get various department heads or managers to talk about stuff related to their jobs. Like Park ops can do specifics on the rides and such, Entertainment can give out schedule times and talk about various shows, Culinary can maybe give out food available, and hell give out recipies of the holiday offerings.

So would be unique for people like passholders, locals, and of course tourist who could hear the offerings. Good for them I say. And they picked a good time 6am til 10am so just in case they expecting really bad weather or had bad weather could give out park closings or delays. I like the idea, and good for them.
