Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate 75 years of WLPO!  103.9 WLPO congratulates our big draw down winners:  Michele Hanck of Spring Valley won the grand prize 3/4 carat diamond earrings from Sasso Jewelry & Gifts and Joleen Nauman of Ladd got the runner up $750 from Illinois Valley Credit Union.  Everyone who qualified for the draw down won a prize.  If you qualified but did not make it and have not heard from us, we have a WLPO 75th anniversary pint glass waiting for you.  Stop by the studios during business hours (M-F 8-5) to claim yours.  Here's to 75 more!

November 16, 1947 was WLPO's first full day on the air.  November 16, 2022, as we celebrate 75 years, we invite you to our Diamond Jubilee Drawdown at Senica's Oak Ridge Golf Club & Banquet Center.  You'll be able to visit with current and past WLPO personalities and win great prizes, including a 3/4 carat pair of diamond earrings from Sasso Jewelry & Gifts and cash from Illinois Valley Credit Union.

Starting Monday September 26th, you get two chances to qualify to win all the Diamond Jubilee Drawdown prizes by listening to 103.9 WLPO.  Just after 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. each weekday morning, Rod & Tom will give you a keyword.  Later that afternoon (between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.) you'll be asked to text that key word to 815-223-3093 within 15 minutes.  Then just after 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Jeremy will give you another key word to text the following weekday morning between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m.  Each time we play, we pick one person's text at random to be one of our 75 qualifiers for the diamond earrings, the cash and other prizes!

Good luck winning!  We hope you have fun and encourage you to play every day and qualify as many times as you can to increase your chance of winning November 16th!
