KAAY "For the People Bumper Sticker"
This is one KAAY contest memory that sticks out in my mind, as a devoted station listener. A.J. Lindsey and others have told me that Pat Walsh loved this contest, and many times was the person manning the "Mobile Cash Cruiser," calling in the license number of a car or truck, giving them the opportunity to win money from "The Mighty Ten Ninety." Dale Seidenschwarz (Clyde Clifford) said that at times he thought Pat was a disc jockey wannabe.
This may not be the exact script, but it's from memory. Other former listeners or station staff members may recall it exactly, but here is an example:
This is the KAAY Mobile Cash Cruiser, driving behind a late-model blue Ford 2-door sedan, traveling West on Asher Avenue. If the driver of the vehicle is listening, and will pull over in a safe location, we'll award them $10.90--or--$100, if they have a KAAY For the People bumper strip, on the exterior portion of the automobile.
Contests and promotions were just some of the reasons people listened to KAAY. Before he died, Pat Walsh sent me several of these bumper strips for my use.
