For the first time the Gialappa’s Band will comment live also on R101 everything going on inside the Big Brother 11 house, presented by Alessia Marcuzzi.
Every Monday from 9 pm until April 2011 the members of the legendary trio (otherwise known as Giorgio Gherarducci, Marco Santin and Carlo Taranto) will provide an exclusive radio report on R101 and at the same time on Mediaset Premium Extra 1 of everything that happens during the live coverage of the reality show, with comments and asides on the most amusing contestants.
The live format for the Gialappa’s Band has been used in the past for matches involving the Italian national team and for the Sanremo Festival, though never for a reality show lasting around 4 hours.
After just three episodes of Big Brother 11, a sort of Gialappa-mania has already exploded online. The audience will be able to follow the trio on different ways. On Mediaset Premium Extra 1, which also exploits supplementary TV cameras, on the radio on R101, or by tuning in to Canale 5, turning down the volume of the TV and turning up that of the radio with the comments of the Gialappa’s Band.
