Big Mama and the Wild Bunch of B103's morning show broadcasted an April Fool's joke this week, telling listeners that Beasley Broadcasting had purchased Mantanzas Pass skybridge and was planning on placing a toll on the Fort Myers Beach passage way.

Big Mama told listeners they wouldn't have to pay a $5 fee if they stopped by the station to get a special transponder which turned out to be a B-103 sticker.

B-103's radio personaility 'Boston' said many listeners laughed at the joke while some were irked by the hoax.
