GREG CAPULLO AND TODD McFARLANE DESIGN MASCOT FOR KUPD RADIO
FM Station Launches Web Site with New Custom Character
Friday, October 06, 2006
Legendary creative forces Greg Capullo and Todd McFarlane have teamed up again -- this time to design the mascot for Phoenix radio station KUPD-FM's new Web site.
The new mascot is a classic Capullo/McFarlane collaboration. He looks like he could crush a bar full of bikers. He's big, bad and angry -- and he's ready to bang his head. Or yours.
While Capullo and McFarlane's newest creation remains nameless, its hard-rocking attitude clearly reflects the "Big Red Radio"'s hard-charging spirit to its core.
The new animated mascot isn't the only new addition to the 98 KUPD-FM Web site. The entire site has a totally new look and feel, and listeners around the world can now hear "Arizona's Real Rock" via streaming audio.
"This is something our listeners have really been asking for," says Larry McFeelie, 98 KUPD-FM's program director. "The Big Red Radio has taken the next step in the digital revolution, and listeners can now hear us whether you're across the street, across the country or across the ocean, especially our service members and their families who are currently overseas."
