Z90 PD R DUB said, “In my 23 years in radio, I have never been part of a promotion this absolutely massive! In fact, I’m not sure I’ve even seen or heard any radio promotion this big … anywhere. A huge thank you to the many people who made #EPIC48Hours truly epic, including every department here at SD LOCAL, our record label partners, and valued clients. Too many people to thank individually, but each was instrumental in pulling this off.”
