A public service announcement…

If you know the answer to question #3, please make sure you know the answers to questions #1 and #2 – they are posted on this site.

Is question #3 going to be replaced?

Paul is commenting that “there is no way someone will get question #3″ and right now is discussing if he is going to replace it with another question.

He also commented that they may post the answer on their website.

We’ll see where this goes.

What is question #2

Paul has asked two versions of question #2:

He initially asked “It cost $14.33 what was it?” but on 2/19 he changed it to “It cost $14.83 what was it?”

I am unsure which is the correct version but he’s spent two das now on $14.83.  We’ll see how it goes.

You Can’t Win returns TODAY!

You Can’t Win returns today at around 8:10AM (eastern time). Be sure to tune in to listen and if you aren’t in range you can always listen online at Big 105.9.com

There is no mention of the prizes on their website yet but most likely will have them later today.

Any guesses on how long this season will last?  The previous season lasted 61 days.  I’m thinking it will go 65-70 days.

Edit:  This season is it 6 questions (mentioned at 8:07AM)


  • Riva Motorspots 2012 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 classic
  • Pompano Ford 2 year lease 2013 Ford Fusion S

No mention of YCW

So far today they have not mentioned You Can’t Win. I thought last week they hinted it might start today at 8am – maybe not. We’ll know by 8:30. :)

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! They mentioned You Can’t Win today but said it may not start for a while as they gather advertisers and prizes for the game. Stay tuned.

They just said that it is returning next Monday (Jan 7) at 8AM (eastern time).

News of a You Can’t Win Nature

Looks like we have another week of “Best Of” this week – I hope Paul & Young Ron (and the staff) have a good vacation;.

Last week Paul commented that it takes a few months to get sponsors for You Can’t Win and we shouldn’t expect to have it back until “after the first”. I’m assuming they mean after New Year’s Day since I can’t see them launching a new season in October, November, or December considering all the holidays (we would be getting a hint every few days!).

With that I’ll leave you with some classic Moody Blues. I miss the days of seeing acts like this in small venues like this.
