Send your sweetheart a singing telegram from Ohm Radio


What could go wrong?

[embed-1] What’s Valentine’s Day without grand romantic gestures? Well, Charleston’s commercial-free and independent radio station Ohm Radio 96.3 FM is making those easier to conduct on Feb. 14.

Ohm Radio is offering singing telegrams for purchase if you’ve always wanted to surprise your love through song but never acquired the musical skill to do so. 

For $35 you get to pick from a list of songs, including, “Close To You” by the Carpenters, “My Girl By the Temptations, “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran, “You Are My Sunshine,” and “I Swear” by All-4-One. 

If your current situation is less than perfect or your sweetheart is less than existent, there are songs for you, too, like “More Than Friends” by Jason Mraz and Megan Trainor.

Your Valentine’s Day sweetheart will be serenaded by local musicians, including Mel Washington and Whitney Hannah. Proceeds from the telegram sales will help support Ohm Radio.
