In the month of November, WDSR is holding a contest for the station’s DJ’s–Be the first show to “break” the stream and win a prize.
Here’s the deal–the WDSR stream can only support a certain number of people. If too many people try to stream the station, the stream will go down. If EVERYONE tunes in at the same time, we’ll have a good chance of breaking the station and winning the contest.

If you haven’t listened to the Matt and Matt Show before, this week’s the perfect time to start.  It’s really simple: to tune in, go to http://www.wdsr.org, find the “Shout Stream” in the upper right-hand corner of the page, and click “Play.”  (Or click “Listen Now” and stream the station through iTunes or Winamp)

Tune in from 7-9 on Wednesday, November 4th–be sure to go on at 7 and keep streaming until at least 7:30.
If you don’t feel like listening to us talk, just open the stream and turn the volume all the way down–we won’t be offended.  (though hopefully you WILL listen!)

This is HUGE. If you guys can do this, it would solidify us as one of the top shows on WDSR. Stanz and I are trying to think of a great prize or something for you, the listeners, if you all can do this for us. We promise it will be awesome–like getting a really awesome, legit guest. Or free candy for everyone! One or the other.

I’ll be live-blogging the show, so be sure to check out this blog for my updates through the night.  Peace!

-Matt
