Trip includes airfare for 2, hotel accommodations for 2 nights and tickets to the concert.

c.     Any problems with the internet or email are not WLZX’s responsibility.

d.     Contestants who register to participate on our website may be required to produce a printed copy of proof of registration before being allowed to participate in the contest.

e.  Due to the nature of our programs that are heard on-line over the internet, contests may not be heard at all.  Contests heard on the radio station’s internet audio stream may be slightly delayed from the time the contests are heard on the broadcast station, and will be running behind the broadcast signal. Thus, all contests heard are delayed. This delay can last for as much as 30 seconds or more.  This means that when WLZX contests are played that require a specific caller to telephone the radio station (such as “Caller number 9 when you hear the sound effect”), listeners to the on-line audio stream may be at a disadvantage in participating over those listeners who hear the contests on-air.

18. A copy of these rules are available during business hours at the WLZX studios 45 Fisher Ave. East Longmeadow, MA 01028.
