What have you won off the radio?

I've won 3 Doors Down concert tickets.
 
I won wrestling tickets and gave them to my brother in law. I called him the day after to see how it went, he had completely forgotten to go!

Moody Blues Octave album in marble color back in the 70's.  Moody Blues concert tickets and back stage pass in 84.  KISS meet market date back in 92.

Re: What have you won off the radio?

I've personally only won movie tickets.  ETA: Oh! And Gloria Estefan concert tickets--1996, maybe? No offense to Gloria or her fans but I didn't want them. I must have been trying for something else. And I think I won caps hockey tickets once. I rarely try though--if I win something its a fluke.
 
My mother used to be obsessed with our local radio station contests. I know she won a beta VCR (80s), and some money. If there was a contest where 10 or 20 people would have a chance to try a key in a car, or to open a house, etc. she was usually one of those people.
 
They did a lot of those contests where you had to keep track of things over a period of weeks. I remember there would be a chart or list near the phone, that we weren't allowed to touch.

Re: What have you won off the radio?

3 nights/4 days in Las Vegas, plus tickets to a show, a couple free dinners & some gambling credits. We didn't gamble of course but I got to see what the inside of a casino looks like! We had to sit through a really pushy timeshare presentation, but it only made it better. We used the free vaca as our next-to-last weekend together before he went to Iraq Smiley Happy

My husband told the timeshare salesman that he was leaving for Iraq in like 3 weeks, so this wasn't the best time to make a purchase like a timeshare. The salesman told him, "No offense sir, but this isn't about YOU." Wow! We laughed for HOURS.

Danzig concert tickets.  I was so close to the band that I probably scared the band.
Passes to meet Lara Flynn Boyle/Sheryl Lee/Ray Wise at "Twin Peaks" fest

Re: What have you won off the radio?

I won a vacation.  4 days/3 nights in Playa Del Carmen in 2003 - I think it was.  You signed up and they called my name on the air.  I called in with like 2 mins to spare and got my vacation.  At the time there was a list of places you could chose to go and I chose an all-inclusive resort.  My best friend and I went together and had a ball.  We got stuck in Cancun and missed our flight and ended up staying the night at this guy's house that we met while we were there.  He had a fabulous house and he put us in a taxi back to the airport the next day.  It was a great trip.

Re: What have you won off the radio?

I never win anything, but my brother does.  He calls our local rock/metal station all the time.  They know him now!  He spoke to Dee Snider once and I think he got to meet him once, but I'm not sure.
 
His best win:  trip for 2 from NYC to California to see Mick Jagger film a video of a concert.  Got to meet Mick after the show and take a picture with him.  Later at the hotel, he had drinks with Sean Penn and Lars Ulrich.  I'm so jealous!
