According to the station, the morning began with modest requests for those who only have a birthday 'once every four years', and Good Morning Breakfast presenter Margaret Whitfield even surprised listener Stephan Meyer with cake and balloons.

With the Money for Nothing Quiz, the breakfast team's Shandor Potgieter challenged participants to provide only wrong answers, and listener Corné Calitz succeeded with flying colours and won R3 000. She also received an additional R1 000 for registering as an official OFM listener during its 'Big Radio Registration' campaign. 

Pulane Nel-Sekepe delighted the At Lunch audience with her reverse version of At LunchSounds where listeners could quiz her about a secret sound. During the show, Anny Bruyns and Ashmund Martin also visited McDonald's in Bloemfontein and handed out cash prizes.

The station adds that on the Joyride, Nico van der Westhuizen, Nikki vander Linde and Kayla Barker ensured that the day ended on a high musical note, as well as the customary Leap Day marriage proposal — this time from Theunissen. 

Liana Weideman asked Barend Howard for his hand, and their story had the team — as well as some of the listeners who sent in congratulations — in tears.

The station says that a final big highlight of the day was the announcement of the winner of flight tickets for someone who has never flown on a plane. Yolanda and Alex du Pisani from Viljoenskroon will soon be able to tick this experience off their bucket list. 

It was also Alex's birthday on the day, and the couple celebrated their wedding anniversary on Friday, 1 March.

According to OFM, Anything CanHappen Day was a full-fledged celebration of all the magical elements that make radio 'radio', and strengthens the bond between the brand, the presenters and the audience. 

The station concludes that fans don't have to wait four years for the next surprises, though.
