At the moment, yes that the only way. If any other ways come up we'll let you know.

Don't be too disheartened if you don't get in though, it's not a full length show. It's an hour long special with interviews, so they'll probably only play for about 50 minutes.

Yeah, it's not a full show, but it's a fantastic and tiny venue. Saw Arctic Monkeys play there last year and, other than the most awkward interview ever, it was amazing. I'll try to call in, but even for Foos, I refuse to listen to the awfulness that is the Woody Show.

Having to listen to any radio program for the chance to win is akin to torture. Then, a 12 year old Fallout Boy fan from Victorville is the correct caller.
Also, being at a studio is a lot tougher than hanging out in front of a night club. The security at those places is tighter than getting into NORAD.

I'm still one of the few that have an actual boom box sitting on my desk at work...streaming radio online has a delay that can cause a loss of a few seconds to a few minutes which is everything when trying to be the right caller. That being said, I am not a fan of the morning Woody show, so it's a challenge to sit through ...but I do it for the love of Foo (and it certainly paid off in spades for getting into the Roxy gig a few months back, despite having to sell a little piece of my soul to make it happen). I do like that they have set times for calling in as well (12:20, 2:20 and 5:20) so I know when to be more alert to the call in cue.

Have gotten through a handful of times so far, but just not caller 98. Tenacity is my middle name...Goonies never say die!!

What's their call-in number? Agree that the Woody show is awful, too.

Has anyone who had entered the Alt 987 contest heard? I've been obsessively checking my email and nada.

I was called around 2:45pm. I know another friend who was called around 11am. They are calling folks - coming from an unlisted number. They are verifying your identity, address, etc.

I hope someone records the stream, I have a feeling it's going to be hard to watch outside of the States. But I guess we'll see later.
