Put Some Driveaway In Your Country
May 29, 2013 at 2:46 PM (PT)
HUBBARD BROADCASTING Country WIL/ST. LOUIS will host the finals of its “DEREOKE DRIVEAWAY” singing contest from 3p-5p SATURDAY (6/1) at Woodland Park in COLLINSVILLE, IL, Horseradish Capitol of the World and naturally, site of the annual INTERNATIONAL HORSERADISH FESTIVAL.
Five impartial judges with help from the crowd of horseradish enthusiasts will interrupt a root tossing contest to whittle 14 semi-finalists down to two contestants who will be announced on WIL midday personality DERRICK KEITH’s show MONDAY (6/3). Then WIL listeners take over by logging on to wil92.com, watching video performances and casting their votes before JUNE 14th.
The nine-month process of crowning WIL’s “DEREOKE DRIVEAWAY” champ comes to a climactic ending when both finalists make a triumphant return to COLLINSVILLE on JUNE 15th, performing with "American Idol" alum JOSH GRACIN and local favorites, THE WELL HUNGARIANS. The winner will be announced that night and drives away (get it?) with a 2013 FORD FOCUS.
