Official Contest Rules - Treble Trouble
Description of Contest
1. A recurring game called “Treble Trouble,” may award prizes to one lucky caller as described below.
How to Enter and play: Listeners may participate anytime the show (RAD) invites listeners to be the 18th, 19th and 20th callers at 888-989-9811 to play the Treble Trouble game. Invitations will occur randomly at hosts’ discretion and may or may not occur daily or multiple times per day at random times between 6-10am PT. The 18th-20th callers will then be given a chance to play as follows:
2. 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 have 10 trivia questions read to them by the host. After each question, 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.
3. At any time, during any play, In the event that a technical malfunction makes it impossible for the winner to express a guess, or for a guess to be heard by the hosts, a back-up caller, previously determined to be caller #19, will be given a chance to play. If caller #19 is unable or unavailable, the game will be postponed until a substitute contestant calls in, when directed by the hosts later. Original contestant will forfeit chance to guess, 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.
4. Prizes: Prizes will vary and will be announced at each invitation to play each contest.
