You may be wondering – What’s a Radio Promo?

We broadcast them on every show. They’re short recorded messages that remind people of what they’re listening to….write your own clever radio promo for the Weekly Dose of Fat with Sven and Gomez. or say something clever about Fat-bike Radio. Do a celebrity imitation, or just burp the whole thing. Get creative!
