Lucky listener – unlucky radio station

10 grand prize goes off at first attempt.

Usually, when a station puts up a $10,000 prize they hope to get maximum value from it by dragging out the promotion for a month or so before someone wins it.

But Perth’s 96FM radio duo Paul & Lise were shocked on Monday morning as one of their listeners fluked the contest and took the money on the first attempt.

The challenge was for Rob, a butcher, from WA’s Applecross to squeeze the trigger on the 96FM petrol bowser where he had to make the ‘Perfect Pour’ – to land on exactly $10.00 when he released the trigger.

Unperturbed, but not uninsured, and with another 10k in their back pocket, 96FM reset the contest to give more listeners more chances to win – and their sponsor the exposure they’d signed up for.
