Road Radio USA: Mixing Music With the Message
At Edgar Snyder & Associates, we see first-hand the devastation that underage drinking can cause. We represent victims of serious injuries or worse. That’s why our law firm teamed up with Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC to present Road Radio USA for six years. During Edgar Snyder & Associates' sponsorship of the show, Road Radio visited 164 venues, including 160 schools -- reaching 66,825 students.

Alright, alright, alright. Listen up. All this is Road Radio USA. Now listen, Road Radio, the station that broadcasts messages, but today you guys are gonna hear that same old message like you've never heard it before.
Road Radio USA is a multimedia assembly for middle school and high school students that promotes safe choices and discourages underage drinking and drunk driving. Using music, lights, video, and a simulated live radio show Road Radio USA mixes music with the message.
Jimbo Stereo and Big Andy are the hosts for this experience that students won't soon forget. Throughout the show Jimbo interacts via webcam with students, community leaders, parents, school administrators, and a news reporter who talk about the consequences of drinking alcohol.
If Road Radio can stop even one person from making a bad choice it's all worth it.
The students are encouraged to clap, dance, and have fun while the anti drinking message is woven into the show. Then the students are riveted by a tragic true story of someone who almost died in a drunk driving accident and they get to meet him. The boisterous crowd turns silent as they hear the details.
For three months my son lay in a coma 13 man-made holes were putting him to keep him alive. They wired his mouth shut, fed him...
And just when you think it's over there's an uplifting ending with song, dance, and audience interaction the students love it when their teachers and school administrators get into the fun.
Road Radio USA is sponsored free of charge to western Pennsylvania middle schools and high schools by Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and Edgar Snyder & Associates; a law firm that helps victims who are injured or killed by drunk drivers.
