In a record-setting night, WFAL Falcon radio hosted a twelf-hour marathon this month, featuring Tim Reynolds from the Dave Matthews Band.
In a new high for the student-run station, more than 1,100 online listeners tuned in to hear Reynolds chat by phone about his musical career and the new Dave Matthews Band album. Some listeners to the show hailed from countries such as Brazil, Australia, Ireland and the Czech Republic.
“In my three years here, this completely annihilates any ratings I have ever witnessed,” WFAL General Manager Richard Ehrbar said in a press release. “On our analytics page, the numbers just kept going up, it never stopped, and it remained steady from the first hour to the last.”
Based on the response to the marathon, a similar show is planned for the future. The show was hosted by Tim Kilkenny, Matt Leininger, and Patrick Dougherty. The station can be heard online at www.falconradio.org.
