Weird But True: Radio Campaign Wants Conan O'Brien at Sheetz

01/27/2010
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Local radio's host Demetri "The Greek" Ravanos and his sidekick partner Salt MacMillan are hoping to bring the former late night TV host Conan O'Brien to a Sheetz convenience store here.

In a press release, the duo stated they got the idea to invite O'Brien to perform in the parking lot of a Sheetz gas station after hearing O'Brien make a joke about his next gig in a 7-Eleven parking lot, according to a report by NBC17.

"We don't have 7-Elevens in the Triangle. We have something better," said Ravanos. "Sheetz has better food, better coffee and gas."

Ravanos and MacMillan have set up a Facebook group called "Triangle Team Coco" for listeners to show their allegiance to O'Brien. A second Facebook page called "Bring Coco to the Triangle" asks for listeners to show support for the idea, according to the report.
