I remember the cash call contests, where you had to know how much money was in the jackpot in case the station called you at random. The amount changed every hour, so you had to listen. It was in the 60's, and it was on WTAE when they played easy-listening "housewife" music, which my mother really loved. That meant we all had to put up with her keeping WTAE on as we "listened for the money" in case they called our house. I remember the contest very well, but for a teenager forced to listen to lounge lizard music it was not the least bit fun.

I also remember having to answer your phone "I listen to the new sound of 13-Q". That's another one I remember well, but not as it being fun.
