Global Radio has announced that Vodafone, those fashionable tax dodgers, will be sponsoring its Big Top 40 Chart Show, which currently airs on 125 commercial radio stations around the country.

The twelve month sponsorship will promote Vodafone Freebees, a new promotion for cheap-skate pay-as-you-go customers.

Global Radio’s Group Commercial Director Mike Gordon told reporters: “A sponsorship of this scale truly reflects the phenomenal reach and innovation of the ‘Big Top 40’. We’re thrilled at this partnership and are proud to introduce ‘The Vodafone Freebees Big Top 40′”.

Vodafone Brand Director Danielle Crook added: “‘The Vodafone Freebees Big Top 40’ gives us a massive opportunity to get our message out that we offer great value to millions of Pay as you go customers across the UK. We’re excited to be able to reach such a huge audience with such a compelling message”.
