Yukon & McCord's Secret Sound!
If there's one thing we love at 100.3 The Bear... it's torturing you with our secret sounds! So we've put Yukon and McCord to work, to bring you a Secret Sound that's BETTER THAN EVER!
Listen in for the super secret keyword, SIX times every weekday at 7 AM, 9 AM, 11 AM, 1 PM, 3 PM, and 5 PM. When you hear it, it's time to practice those speedy typing skills and text it to 666-666! If you're the lucky 103rd texter your phone will be ringing... so make sure you answer! That's one blocked number call you'll actually want to pick up! We'll play you a sound clip and if you can correctly identify what that sound is you'll win the $$$! And if you guess incorrectly, well, that's more money on the pot for your next try! For every wrong guess we'll throw another $100 into the jackpot!
To simplify... Guess the sound, WIN THE CASH! How do ya like the sound of that?!

"Can I text in my guess?"
You can feel free to text us as many guesses as you want, but we'll never tell you if you're right or wrong. Just like the masses, you have to listen for the keywords at 7 AM, 9 AM, 11 AM, 1 PM, 3 PM, and 5 PM, every weekday, text it to 666-666 and if we call you back, then you get to tell us loud and proud.
"Can you tell me what text # I am, so I know how close I am?"
No can do! We punch 103 into our fancy textymajigger and it pulls up the 103rd text in. Otherwise, we would have to manually scroll through thousands of texts to find your number then count out where it is. Sorry, but we don't get paid nearly enough for that.
"Why am I getting a 'thanks for playing' so long after you played the sound."
Contrary to popular belief, technology isn't perfect. Our 'thank you' text tries to send itself out as soon as the code word text is sent, but as there are THOUSANDS of you awesome people all texting at the same time (possibly on company time... we don't judge) sometimes the system can get overloaded and slow up.
"How specific does my guess need to be?"
Don't over think it. You don't need to be insanely specific but just enough to make a good guess out of it. For example, one of our previous Secret Sounds was "Ripping a cardboard box." We would've accepted "ripping cardboard" BUT NOT just "Ripping" or "Cardboard". Think "Action" then "Object."
"There's a delay on streaming, do I even have any chance of getting in?"
This goes back to that "technology's not perfect" thing. Unfortunately yes, there is a delay when you listen to 100.3 The Bear on a streaming device BUT fortunately we've had TONS of people get in who are streaming. You just might have to be a little quicker on the draw.
"How many times can we text in?"
As per our rules that we know YOU ALL READ... "Limit of one (1) Entry per individual per Entry Period, regardless of the method of entry."
"Do you block numbers from outside Alberta?"
We do not. But when we do call, we will make sure your primary place of residence is in Alberta. Our contest is restricted to the province of Alberta.
“Why am I getting charged for texting you?”
Your mobile plan might just suck. We unfortunately have no control over this and that is why you’ll find in our rules and in every contest response you get from us that “Messaging (or data) rates may apply.”
“Can I listen to the sound online?”
You can listen to the PREVIOUS sounds online and check all incorrect guesses online but the current Secret Sound can only be heard 7AM-5PM, Monday-Friday (except for holidays) live on-air. CHECK THE INCORRECT GUESSES!!!
"Do you guys make the sounds in your studio?"
Yes indeed! Yukon & McCord have spent countless hours practicing their... noise making skills... just for you!
