Malibu Rum contest launches search for traveling radio correspondent

Tune in, Radio Maliboom Boom.

Malibu, the coconutty rum that’s like summer in a bottle, is looking for one outgoing, creative, beach-bum-lifestyle-loving man or woman for their nationwide radio correspondent search.
The chosen one will travel across the country attending concerts, reporting from the road, interviewing celebrities, and “celebrating the season of the sun.”

The Correspondent position was developed to find the emcee for the Station Invasion Concert Tour–a 10-city musical series–which will “bring the spirit of the Caribbean from coast to coast.
As the Radio Maliboom Boom Correspondent, you’ll introduce the tour and musical acts, do video and blog posts, Facebook updates, and tweets. You’ll also represent Malibu by conducting and participating in video, radio, and media interviews across the nation.

Applications are being accepted online through May 15, 2011. You must be 25 and over, fill out an application, and submit a video “reel” that creatively showcases why you should be chosen, incorporating three key messages about Malibu (the rum, not the city). Three finalists will attend training in Malibu’s homeland of Barbados from June 20-23. The summer stipend for the Correspondent will be $15,000-and all the dancing (and, presumably, rum, sunscreen, and hair of the dog) you can handle. Cheers to summer!

Daily Pampering: Soulful serenading in the Swiss Alps

What’s more romantic than a hot summer evening and the smooth sounds of Foreigner? (Cue the high school flashbacks) Outdoor music fans (and children of the 1980s and 1990s) prepare to flock to the Swiss Alps for the “Live at Sunset” concert.

If your summer travels involves a trip to Europe, you might want to stopover in Zurich for this music event.

Nestled amongst the Swiss Alps and Lake Zurich, the city comes alive at the “Live at Sunset” concert from July 14 – 25, hosted at the Dolder Sports ice rink. Tori Amos, Foreigner, John Fogarty, A-Ha, and many more, will be on hand to serenade you amid the stunning landscape.

No concert package is complete without a place to stay. The historic Dolder Grand resort is the host of the Live at Sunset festival, and is offering a special package including a three-course pre-concert dinner and tickets to the concert of your choice, along with one night accommodation and breakfast at the Garden Restaurant from 980 CHF (approximately $837 USD).
