BMA Official Rules




  1. How to Enter/How to Win. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.

    This is a listen and win sweepstakes. When listeners hear the “And the Billboard Award Goes To” sounder on KS95, the first person who reaches the station by calling 651-989-5795 will become a qualifier. This sweepstakes will run on Monday, April 27, 2015, only, between 6:00 a.m. and 11:59:59 p.m. The sounder will play every hour for a total of eighteen (18) qualifiers. “And the Billboard Award Goes To” sounder occurring during promotional announcements does not count as a listener’s chance to call in; listeners are only eligible to call in to participate in this sweepstakes when the “And the Billboard Award Goes To” sounder occurs by itself, not in conjunction with a promotional announcement.

    There will be eighteen (18) qualifiers.  On Tuesday, April 28, 2015, from the eighteen (18) qualifiers, one name will be drawn at the KS95 Studios to be the grand prize winner.

    Note that webcasts of KS95’s programming are typically on a delayed basis, which may affect a webcast listener’s ability to participate in this sweepstakes.  KS95 will not accept collect calls.  KS95 is not responsible for telephone line unavailability, busy signals on the sweepstakes line, operator interference, technical or atmospheric conditions that disrupt the completion of the phone call, telephone system malfunctions, or any other telephone problems which may or may not result from this sweepstakes.  Odds of becoming a qualifier depend on the number of listeners calling after the sounder is played each hour.
