GLEE-FM takes to the airwaves

Canwest taking over Toronto radio station in stunt for new season

This will either make you want to turn it up to 11, or hide under your desk: Toronto radio station 103.9 Proud FM will on Monday be all Glee, all day long. In a promotional event for the new season, the station will devote itself to the songs that have helped catapult the Global show into a top-rated hit.

Familiar classics like Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing, Queen’s Somebody to Love and John Lennon’s Imagine are just some of the chart-toppers that will be broadcast by the temporarily christened GLEE-FM, sung both by the original artists and cast members as taken from the albums Glee: The Music Volumes 1 and 2 and the soon-to-be-released The Power of Madonna.

Cast interviews, behind-the-scenes info, and hourly CD prize packs will also quicken the pulse of the most devoted Glee fan, or ‘Gleek,’ as will the grand prize: a trip for two to New York to see a date of the sold-out Glee U.S. concert tour.

The station will also broadcast at www.globaltv.com/gleefm throughout the day and feature a performance by a street-singing choir.

Glee returns to Global on April 13 for a one-time 9:25 p.m. airing. Subsequent episodes will air regularly on Tuesdays at 9 p.m.
