OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES
RAD PANDEMIC BAILOUT
UPDATED FRIDAY, MAY 29, 2020
Description of Contest
A. A daily game will award a chance at a prize and make the winners eligible to win the grand prizes as described below.
B. How to Enter and play: In addition to previous qualifiers as described in the rules below covering April 13, 2020 – May 29, 2020, Beginning on Monday, June 1, 2020 as close to 7:00 am PDT as possible, through a date still to be determined as a result of America’s adjustments to the Covd-19 pandemic, the show (RAD) will invite listeners to be either the 18th 19th and 20th callers at 888-989-9811 to play either “Treble Trouble,” or “Master of Movies.” Or, to simply be caller 18 and play the “pressure Cooker.” Invitations, including, and then following, the first one on 06/01/2020 will occur each weekday as close as possible to the top of each live hour of the show (7:00, 8:00, and 9:00 am). Once RAD is able to determine a reasonable date to execute the grand prize drawings, it will announce both the end date of qualifying contests, and the specific grand prizes, along with the grand prize drawing date.
The regular occurring RAD show games, “Treble Trouble,” and “Master of Movies,” and the “pressure cooker,” will be played once each daily, rotating the three available time slots.
Treble Trouble is a game of skill, luck, and knowledge. A “hint” or clue will be given as to the title of the song in question. For example, “this is a song by The Beatles.” A 3-4 second clip of a song will then be played. The clip will be fed directly to the phone lines of each caller simultaneously. Caller 18 will then be asked to name the title of the song. If Caller 18 identifies the song title correctly, they will win the previously stated prize. If Caller 18 does not correctly answer, caller 19 will be given a chance, and then caller 20. If none of the three callers identify the song, the prize is not awarded to anyone. Once the title has been identified, a longer (30 seconds) clip will be played for all to hear proving the song’s identity. It will be up to the show hosts discretion to determine if any song title guess is deemed “close enough,” using a reasonable formula of not adding words and eliminating only minor parts of any title. For example, if the given title of the song is “A crazy little thing called love,” and a caller guesses “little thing called love,” hosts will deem that to be incomplete, having left out a key word of the title. However, if a caller guesses “crazy little thing called love,” leaving out only “a” from the title, hosts will deem that to be in the spirit of a correct answer.
Master of Movies is a game of skill, luck, and knowledge. A “hint” or clue will be given as to the movie from which the clip to be played originates. For example, “this is from a 2020 action comedy movie.” A clip from the movie in question will then be played containing a well-known moment from that film. The clip will be fed directly to the phone lines of each caller simultaneously. Caller 18 will then be asked to name the title of the movie. If Caller 18 identifies the movie title correctly, they will win the previously stated prize. If Caller 18 does not correctly answer, caller 19 will be given a chance, and then caller 20. If none of the three callers identify the movie, the prize is not awarded to anyone. Once the title has been identified, a longer (30 seconds) clip will be played for all to hear proving the movie’s identity. It will be up to the show hosts discretion to determine if any movie title guess is deemed “close enough,” using a reasonable formula of not adding words and eliminating only minor parts of any title. For example, if the given title of the movie is “Bad Boys For Life” and a caller guesses “Bad Boys,” hosts will deem that to be incomplete, having left out a key word of the title. However, if a caller guesses “Bad Boys 3; Bad Boys for life” adding unnecessary words to the title, hosts will deem that to be in the spirit of a correct answer. “Bad Boys 3,” however, would not be accepted as that is not the title of the movie in this example.
The Pressure Cooker is a timed game of skill and knowledge. Caller 18 will have 30 seconds to answer trivia questions as read by the host. A minimum of 5 questions and a maximum of 9 will be read, time allowed. Caller 18 must answer 5 questions correctly in order to win the stated prize. Caller 18 will not be told in the immediate that their answer is or isn’t correct. Rather, after the 30 seconds of questioning, hosts will recap each question and reveal the correct answer(s) while tabulating the caller’s score. If Caller 18 does not correctly answer 5 of the questions, the prize is not awarded to anyone.
In each game, the hints, questions, and clips will have varying degrees of difficulty. RAD will insure, by adjusting difficulty levels as needed, a minimum of 30 qualifiers before announcing an end date to the qualifying and/or conducting the grand prize drawings.
During the playings of “Treble Trouble,” the “pressure cooker,” or “Master of Movies,” in the event that a technical malfunction makes it impossible for caller 18, 19, or 20 to participate in the game and/or provide the needed personal information to qualify for the drawing, caller will forfeit chance, regardless of the reasons for initial malfunction, including, but not limited to, cell phone cut-outs, accidental disconnection and force majeure. In the event of technical malfunction, original contestant waives and releases any and all rights and claims to attempt another guess, participate further in the contest, and to any contest prize.
C. Prizes: Effective with any winners as of June 1, 2020, The winners of each daily game will receive one of a series of rotated gift cards to the following businesses: Fire-Up-E-Sports, Hunstman Tavern, Our Bar, Nor Cal Gun Vault, Longhorn Meat Company, Inkoff.Me, Salisbury’s Deli and Grill, Sienna and Land Ocean Restaurants and Skipolinis.
Each winner will also receive an entry into the already existing pool of entries for grand prize drawings which will occur at a later date as determined above. The three grand prize winners will each receive a prize valued at a minimum of $500. Examples of such prizes are: gift cards, cash, concert tickets to confirmed events, or merchandise.
Once the grand prizes and the date of the drawings have been determined, each qualifier (winner of daily games) will be notified by RAD via the email address provided as to when the grand prize drawings will be held and what, if anything, the qualifiers will need to do to claim their prizes if chosen
In all events, the first grand prize drawing winner will have their choice of the three prizes available, followed by the second and third winners.
