So, living in the city of Atlanta is awesome, and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in GA, but lately the spike in gas prices within city limits is getting a little ridiculous.
My first thought was, “Dang, I thought gas prices went down during election season?!” And then it came to me after a couple seconds… gas prices go up when there is a big holiday coming…Oh my gosh, Labor Day Weekend is almost here!! With the summer winding down, people are scrambling to get everything done at work before the long weekend. So here at FIT Radio, we want to keep everyone entertained on the last warm 3 day weekend holiday. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to depress you or wish away Summer (hell to the nah) but I looked at my calendar and then next “official” holiday (meaning not National Handstand Day, Jill Hanner! :D)
is Columbus Day which isn’t until the 2nd Monday in September, vom. So we absolutely have to enjoy our last warm weather hoorah. The mixes will provide you with the standard “Manic Monday” track list, along with other fun party mixes that will definitely pump you up to make sure you end your summer with a bang! you can find all the mixes under the Labor Day Station on http://fitradio.com
If the last post didn’t quench your thirst for knowledge of the goings on at the Red Bull Soapbox Race, then have a looksie at a little video we threw together!
FIT Radio is a fan of the music festival and the season is in full swing now…
Bonnaroo, Ultra, Coachella, or SXSW… you name it and at least one person from our FIT team has attended. Festivals have exploded in the last decade by building a cult following of fans that attend year in and year out to see all their favorite artist. Soon we hope to be sending FIT Radio representatives to all of these festivals with our own FIT promo tent to spread the word about this awesome app. Last year, in FIT Radio’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, the city announced the return of the popular annual Atlanta festival Music Midtown. The year of its resurrection was full of “bands of the future,” said long time Music Midtown coordinator and promoter, Peter Conlon. This year, Music Midtown will feature a more diverse line-up bringing in a couple hip-hop artists to the mix. Whether it’s the ten-day SXSW festival or the two-day Music Midtown, you can bet that FIT Radio will be in attendance, because it’s events like these that showcase all the great artists of today. We take the experience that these great music festivals offer music enthusiasts like us and bring it home to our app to provide our users with the best content from around the world.

So this past Saturday, Lexi and I had the privilege of promoting with the team organizing and coordinating The Great Urban Race, which is, if you don’t already know, a crazy fun scavenger hunt throughout Atlanta, or Chicago, or whichever city they are visiting that weekend. Think The Amazing Race television show but on a somewhat smaller scale 😉 Anyway, the race wasn’t without a clue sheet, themed teams with fun costumes and, what else, great music provided by yours truly! It was an awesome experience not only because of the stirring atmosphere surrounding all the runners but the people at Red Frog Events were so incredibly helpful and kind. Cynthia, Catherine, Tyler, and the rest of the team were a pleasure to work with and we can’t wait to do more with Red Frog Events! Anytime we ever speak with anyone at their company, they are always happy and full of excitement and energy. You can tell they all must love what they do! Here are some pics, and don’t forget to head on over to our Facebook to see them all!! P.S. I would definitely recommend signing up for this event! Check out their page to see if they’re in a city near you.

FIT Radio was invited to provide music for the Finish Line at The Color Run this past weekend at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. Since we all talked about how exciting it looked months before while we sat in the office, we were all thrilled to receive the opportunity to partner up with such a unique race. We brought out a team of Promo Girls with FIT Radio stencils and neon orange paint; as the girls ran around tagging people, they also got in on the action (see Abby, a FIT Radio promo girl, covered in paint to the left).
The Color Run was something none of us have ever seen before! It honestly was the Happiest 5K you could ever run! There were people playing around with colored powder everywhere, throwing it in the air, as they danced with their friends. The energy of the crowd was incredible! We may be a little biased, but we believe that it had something to do with our FIT Radio DJ Rimby who was providing non-stop, high-energy music throughout the entire event. All-in-all, it was a great day, and the most fun we have ever had promoting FIT Radio. Kudos to The Color Run for such a great idea!
