are posted on pages related to that contest.
1. The Contest
a) Contest dates vary from contest to contest.
b) The Station, owned and operated by Connoisseur Media, LLC (CONNCOS) may terminate contest at any time or change dates and locations in its sole and absolute discretion
2. Entry / How To Win / Eligibility
a) Method of entry and determining winners varies from contest to contest.
b) Contestants listening to the Station via the internet stream are advised that there is a delay between the time the cues to call are made on the air and when they are heard over the internet and therefore will be at a disadvantage over those contestants listening over the air. Listeners to the online stream may not be able to timely participate in any station-conducted on-air contests. Due to this delay in the Station’s streaming broadcast, listeners to the online stream are encouraged to listen to the Station live on-air.
c) No purchase is necessary.
d) Odds of winning will depend on the number of qualified entries. Individuals may qualify more than once but are limited to once in a 14 day period.
