WDRV Grand Slam




Listen to 97.1 FM The Drive. This sweepstakes will run several times (2 to 8 times) each weekday (Monday-Friday) from Tuesday, September 6, 2016, through Friday, October 28, 2016. Each weekday during the sweepstakes period, listeners must listen to 97.1FM The Drive (also simulcast on 96.9 FM) between 9:00 a.m. and 5 p.m. for a song, or multiple songs, to be played by the “Grand Slam” Artist of the day noted on the Grand Slam calendar posted online at www.wdrv.com. The name of the “Grand Slam” Artist of the day will also be announced throughout the day on The Drive.

How to Become a Winner: Upon hearing a song or multiple songs from the Grand Slam Artist of the day between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. call (312) 642-WDRV (9378). Pending verification of eligibility the 97th caller will be awarded $100 if a single song is played by the Grand Slam Artist of the Day, $200 if two songs are played in a row by the Grand Slam Artist of the Day, $500 if three songs are played and $1,000 if four songs by the Grand Slam Artist of the Day are played in a row. WDRV will begin accepting calls after the final song has started in any given Grand Slam play. Note that webcasts of The Drive’s programming are typically on a delayed basis, which may affect a webcast listener’s ability to participate in this sweepstakes.
