96.3 WDVD Deeee-troit!

I never play radio call in games. They are so frustrating. Always a busy signal and hitting redial a bazillion times just to hear a loud pitched default noise followed by an obnoxious voice saying "all circuits are busy, please try again."

This morning I am at work and I knew of their latest game. There are fifty purses, all designer, from Prada, to Chanel, YSL, LV, Dooney & Bourke, etc. Out of the fifty, ten have $1,000 in them.

The DJ announced that the 96th caller would definitely win a purse and it could possibly have $1000 in it. I dialed and got the expected busy signal. I hit redial a couple times, listening to the music in the background of my office thinking I should stop because they probably have the caller by now.

Then I got a ring ...it kept ringing, like 6-8 times before it was answered with "you are the 96th caller." Just like all the other dumb responses I've laughed at, there I am saying "are you are kidding me?" to which he replied, "I don't kid about that!" He had me pick a purse, giving me a choice of three random numbers 35, 40, or 42. I picked 42, and he announced I won a Dooney & Bourke brown leather bag valued at $285, then he opened it up.

Drum-roll please ... ONE THOUSAND BUCK-A-ROOS! I have never won a thing in my life. Sure feels good!

Hi, Congrats for winning a nice purse. I am just like you. But I hardly participate in radio game shows. Whenever I have tried I had to face the same problem - The circuit is busy, please try again later. It just makes me very irritated. But once I have also won, a sum of $150. Little but I am happy, alteast I have one thing to say when any one says that he / she had won some gift on radio.
Bye and Happy Birthday.
