MONTH-LONG prizestravaganza, purely coincidentally coinciding with annual survey of radio ratings. Format thus – breakfast DJ of the time (usually Simon Mayo) would announce ‘cue record’ at 8am, along with big prize of day (usually a trip to go and see Michael Jackson in Bucharest); when cue record played, all mayhem would break loose, as thousands of listeners grimly tried to get through (on 01 637 4343) to answer simple quiz questions. Plenty of Monkhouse-style suspense-baiting from 1FM’s resident jocks, to wit “so Linda, for a trip to go and see Simple Minds live in Houston, you’re saying that their lead singer is Jim Kerr…[pause]…Linda, do you really want to see Simple Minds?…[pause]…well…I can tell you…[pause]…You! Are! A! Winner!”.
