Every hour at the top of the hour, between the previous hour’s 00:55 minute and 00:05 past the hour, the Radio Station will announce the name of the “Fresh Track Of the Hour”. When you hear the Radio Station play that FRESH Track of the Hour later in the hour, listeners are invited to call (705) 876-1005 (the “Contest Line”). A random numbered caller, as chosen and announced by the on-air announcer, who gets through to the Contest Line (a “Radio Qualifier”) will be entered into the draw for the Grand Prize, as described below (each, a “Call In Entry”). The Radio Qualifier may also be randomly selected to qualify to receive a Secondary Prize (defined below).
