Have you ever phoned up a radio station and dedicated a song to someone special? Better still, have you made a "hoax" dedication?

Hmmm, not that I recall. Too romantic for my taste (the unromantic one here). I wouldnt mind if someone dedicated something for me though...

Many a time - from age 12 to 15. Then the rock station changed to country/western so we quit listening. Hoax dedications?? Those were the most fun!!!

We used to call bars and ask for the strangest name we could find in the phone book - saying we were their babysitter or wife. One of the people who's name we used was actually in the bar we called one night. He wasn't suppose to be there...

When i was about 8 years old i phoned up Radio 1 and spoke to Tony Blackburn. He put a request on for me for my brothers 1st birthday. The song was called Postman Pat and my brother used to go absolutely crazy to this song if he was in his baby walker!!!!!

For those in the UK they will know exactly what i'm on about and what a legend Tony Blackburn is.

When I was small, we lived on a street named Shady Lane. The neighbor's son was a DJ at the local radio station. Every afternoon, he would begin his show by playing the song "Naughty Lady of Shady Lane" and dedicating it to me. We moved away when I was six but I remember it as though it were yesterday.

One of my favorite songs is by Stevie Wonder, "I Just Called to Say I Love You". When I was younger, I called in as a hoax, so I could get them to play it.
