WJET FM Sweepstakes tickets '82 Camaro Z-28

WJET-AM 1400 radio in Erie, PA had contests for as long as I can remember. I won a ton of them by calling the station over and over until I was the right caller.

This contest was a little bit different. You had to have a ticket and you had to listen for your lucky number to be announced on the air. And then, you had so many minutes to call in and claim your prize.

Prizes included video tape recorders, a microwave oven, a color television, a motorcycle, ten speed bicycles, sporting goods, furniture and much more. The grand prize was a 1982 Camaro Z-28.

Despite having a stack of these tickets, I don't remember winning anything. How about you?

Here is a link to WJET-AM surveys from 1975 and 1977: http://oldtimeerie.blogspot.com/2012/05/wjet-am-1400-erie-pa-surveys-1975-and.html

  1. The WJET Diamond Hunt of, I think, 1966 is a lasting memory for me. Hiding place was the Red Cross 'shack' on PI which has now another name.
