Breakfast host rolls a stone for The Stones
The Rolling Stones have added a gig at Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley on their rescheduled tour later this year. Stolzy, who does breakfast on 2NM in the Hunter Valley, was desperate to get hold of tickets to the local gig for his listeners.
The first lot of cash to get the tickets came from station client Darryl from the Muswellbrook RSL, but there was a catch. He offered Stolzy $300 if he rolled a stone through the Hunter Valley all day.
Stolzy was up for it and on Thursday morning dressed as the fifth member of The Rolling Stones, armed with a skateboard with a stone attached and rolled it through Muswellbrook and ended up in Scone about 25 kms away.
2NM listeners and local businesses loved it and donated $1400 so he now has 2 Reserve Premium tickets to give away on the station.
Stolzy said: "People were coming from everywhere, local shop owners, listeners, it was amazing. It was one of the most enjoyable days I have had in radio and the people of the Upper Hunter have really made me feel like this is home."
2NM PD Billy McFerrin says: "This is a feel good story for the Hunter Valley. Our breakfast show recently raised $30,000 to help struggling farmers with Buy a Bale and now the local community got together again and have raised enough money to give two lucky Rolling Stones fans the chance to see them at Hope Estate."
