Dave “Chachi” Denes, President, Benztown, commented: “We think Free Britney Day and the nationwide ‘Free Britney Radio’ blitz on July 14th will show our collective appreciation for all that Britney Spears has done for music and for radio over the years, through her tremendous talent and contributions to our medium. The more stations across the U.S. that join the #FreeBritney movement and re-brand as ‘Free Britney Radio’ for this one important day for Britney, the bigger impact we will have in making her voice heard. Not to mention, this will make exciting topical radio programming that listeners will love, showcasing the biggest hits by Britney!”
Jeff Timmons, Host of Free Britney Radio, added: “I’m extremely proud and honored to be the host of what we hope will be an impactful message. I’ve known Britney for years, and every time I’ve encountered her she’s been a complete joy to be around, and is clearly a strong and extremely intelligent person, in addition to having immense talent.”
