Nearly a month has passed since the invasion of Oman's airwaves, and the Galactic Republic of Hi FM is in turmoil. Former Jedi Master Chris Fisher has organized a separatist movement against the Republic, known as the rebel alliance, Merge. The Republic contemplated creating an army to assist the crushing of the rebel alliance, prompting Senator Darren Shortt, to return to Planet Nawras to court them for free tickets to stuff, again.
The Storm Troopers from Nawras were only too happy to assist the Republic's battle against the Merge rebels, and rolled out an extremely successful campaign that kept the citizens (listeners!) tuned to Hi FM.
The Merge rebels were left as a minority, but had been secretly preparing an army of droids to assist them in their battle with Hi FM. The music being played by both stations is very similar, albeit a fairly high occurrence of tracks from the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack.
Meanwhile, the Ewoks were making technological advancements, but being teddy bears, seem to be loved by many hotels across the galaxy of Oman. The Ewoks have launched a campaign of giving away free meals to any hotel that will give them vouchers, and seem to have even started advertising for some companies.
It seems that the more competition, the better things are for us citizens, the listeners. The Hi FM Republic forces have now recruited the services of a bounty hunter, called Bobba Fett, who likes to read the news a few times a day. Finally, a decent news service broadcast regularly giving world news - great!
I wonder what the Merge rebels are going to do to respond to this? It seems that their RO 104.800 daily give away is not cutting it. The rebels have, however, managed to tempt lots of advertisers to do business with them. One wonders what their listener base is like though, it's really just Hi FM with some fancy branding as far as I can see so far when it comes to music being played.
What can the Merge rebels bring to the table to fight the Hi FM Republic? Time will tell.
