WRAT Gives Away A Car!

GREATER MEDIA Rocker WRAT/MONMOUTH-OCEAN, NJ just gave away a 2006 Pontiac Solstice after a summer of qualifying listeners each THURSDAY by calling in (listeners could also qualify at RAT events around town over the summer) and being caller #9. Qualifiers won a key that could start the engine of the Solstice. At the end of the summer contestants were invited to the grand prize giveaway event to choose and try a key in the ignition. There were 150 contestants registered for the chance to have the working key.
The big event was structured with 9 keys out of 150 made to start the engine. Those nine "finalists" were asked to then pick a CD, with the CD which played "Rat Rock" determining the winner. The winning song was METALLICA’s "Fuel." It took approximately an hour and a half to determine the nine finalists. By the fifth CD inserted, DANIEL BOCK of BAYONNE, NJ chose a CD, placed it in the Solstice’s CD player, and within seconds, everyone heard James Hetfield’s voice. And so the contest ended.
