From 5pm on Thursday 20th December through to 6pm on Friday 21st December, The Midweek Drive Team will be broadcasting continuously to commemorate the end of the ancient Mayan calendar, at 11:11 UTC on 21st December 2012.
To mark the passing of the predicted apocalypse, Alex Lewczuk, has scheduled the unique trans-Atlantic broadcast with US film-maker and radio host Phil Leirness. Phil currently co-hosts Chillpak Hollywood on the American community radio station Combat Radio.
While ‘X-Files’ and ‘Lone Gunmen’ star Dean Haglund will be hosting the event from LA with director Ilana Rein and actress Lily Holleman, guests appearing on the show in the UK include Grand National commentator Malcolm Tomlinson, his actress daughter Eleanor Tomlinson, and ‘Ladette to Lady’ etiquette expert Liz Brewer.
Nashville publicist and manager Cameron Tilbury has scheduled many of his company’s artists to contribute to the show, including: Tonya Kennedy (from Barrie, Ontario), Darren Harmon of rock band Harmon (from Calgary, Alberta), Shane Gusé of The Western Swing Authority (from Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario), Kenny Holliday (from Houston, Texas), Raintown (from Glasgow, Scotland), Lesley Curtis (from Oundle, England), Dee Allen of rockers Tall Dark Stranger (from Nashville, Tennessee), as well as Nashville songwriters Jo-Leah Tilbury and Seth Alley. Cameron Tilbury said: “We’re excited that so many of the artists we work with around the world are able to take part in this show. We’ve introduced many of these artists to regular listeners of Siren FM through our weekly segment on the station, ‘Live From Nashville.’”
Other features throughout the show include interviews with Sara Bullimore, live studio readings with Producer/writer Steve Cawte, Coronation Street & Doctor Who Director Graeme Harper and more. According to Siren FM’s Alex Lewczuk, “We aim to make this the very best `End of Mayan Calendar Show EVER `.”
So tune in to Siren FM for what could be the last show you ever hear… (alright, it probably won’t be, but it’ll still be a lot of fun!)
