Live Chaos

Live 95FM, Limerick’s licensed service, caused chaos in the city yesterday when it gave away a prize of £10,000 in a competition they called “Four Play”. The prize was awarded for catching a particular four songs in a row and callers jammed all the telephone exchanges in an effort to win a choice of a trip around the world, a new car, a pot-bellied pig or the cash.

Comment: With CKR FM running a similar competition for it’s upcoming 11th birthday celebrations it’s not a bad time to point out that Radio Nova were first in Ireland with this idea too – nearly 20 years ago!
