How to Play: The promotion will be conducted as follows:

  1. The contest is conducted every day (during contest period) through www.kolafm.com.
  2. A contestant may win an opportunity into the “Weekly Prize” drawing in the following manner:

i.                On-Air Qualifying.  There is no on-air qualifying component in the qualifying portion of the contest.

ii.              On-Line Qualifying.  Listeners will be encouraged to enter once per day online at kolafm.com.  Entries must be received by 7am on contest Fridays (listed above). One entry will be chosen from all online entrants by 7:50a on contest Fridays (listed above).


  1. On scheduled “contest Fridays” (listed above) a potential winner will be chosen in a random drawing consisting of all entries received by 7:00a on that day through kolafm.com and consisting of all contestants who have so far entered up to that point during the entire contest period..    All potential winners must be at least 18 years of age.   The potential winner’s name will be announced at or around 7:50a on the specified “contest Fridays”.


  1. The person randomly chosen in the drawing, will have nine-minutes and ninety-nine seconds to call the KOLA Studios at 1-909-798-5600.  If that person (who’s name was announced at 7:50a) does call back within the allotted time, that person (subject to meeting eligibility requirements) will be announced as that “contest Fridays” winner of the “Weekly Prize” stated above.   There is no separate contest involving texting if the previously announced winner calls back in the allotted time.  The next random drawing, under this case will be the subsequent “contest Friday” listed above.


  1. If the person, who’s name was announced at or around 7:50a, does not call back within the allotted time (9-minutes 99-seconds), that person DOES NOT WIN the stated “Weekly Prize”.  KOLA is not responsible for the inability of a person (who’s name was announced at 7:50a as the potential winner) to contact the KOLA studio.  No consideration for extenuating circumstances. 


  1. Having not called back in the allotted time (if the case is so), a new and separate contest begins.  At the next available time (after the allotted time), listeners will be told that the person (who’s name was previously called at 7:50a) did not call back within the allotted time.  Therefore the 99th person who texts the KOLA studio at 1-909-798-5600 will be chosen to win the “Weekly Prize” (if they meet all eligibility requirements).


  1. Persons involved in the separate text contest DO NOT HAVE TO BE ENTERED online at kolafm.com to be eligible.  ANY person over the age of  18 and meeting eligibility requirements may participate through texting into the KOLA studio.


  1. In the case of contests involving texting, all data fees and charges apply and KOLA is not responsible for any fees or changes that coincide with the listeners ability to enter through texting. Additionally, by texting KOLA for requests, comments on topics, inquiries or any contests, it’s understood that you will receive a reply containing an ad.  All data fees and charges apply per your existing texting or data plan


  1. The contest continues in this manner in subsequent “contest Fridays” (listed above).  The final contest takes place on Friday May 21, 2021.


i.                Grand Prize Drawing.  One (1) winner will be chosen to win the Grand Prize (stated above) from all previous “Weekly Prize” winners.  That Grand Prize Drawing will take place after the final “Weekly Prize” is awarded to a listener (Friday 5.21.21) after 8am.  That person will be contacted directly through the phone number used in the entry process of the contest.



  1. Prize consists only of the item(s) specifically listed as part of the prize and does not include additional fees, gratuities, travel expenses and or taxes associated with the use of this prize.


  1. No proxies and no transfer of eligibility to another person.  The prize or any portion of any described prize is not redeemable for cash.


  1. Only one winner per household of any prize listed as it pertains to “KOLA ALOHA FRIDAY!”.


Exceptions: The contest is an “exception” to the 1 prize per calendar month rule. That is, a person may win 1 other prize during a calendar month and will still be eligible to WIN once with “KOLA ALOHA FRIDAY!” (March 15, 2021 – Friday May 21, 2021).
