Palamedes PR has secured media exposure for audiobook publisher AudioGO on popular UK news website Metro.co.uk.
The agency’s story about the most irritating – and most loved – nursery rhymes was incorporated into a wider feature on the subject, written by Metro journalist Ross McGuinness.
The Metro website attracts almost 10million unique visitors per month.
The nursery rhyme news story, based upon a national survey of 1,000 parents and promoting AudioGO’s popular Wheels on the Bus release, has also generated coverage in a variety of other media outlets including the Bath Chronicle, Frost Magazine and London News.
The survey revealed how “Michael Finnegan” was named as the most irritating nursery rhyme of all time.
Its tune and lyrics were said to be so “utterly catchy” that mums and dads found it impossible to stop humming it for the rest of the day.
The nursery rhyme has ten verses but its ‘begin again’ line means it can continue on a perpetual loop.
“Old MacDonald”, meanwhile, was voted the nation’s parents’ favourite nursery rhyme, beating “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”, “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain” and “Pop Goes the Weasel” to the top spot.
The Wheels on the Bus audiobook is available now from AudioGO.
