Mix 96 is excited to be a part of all the fun during 2017's fair week, August 1st-6th, at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds on West Locust Street.
McFadden & Evans will be broadcasting live on location that week offering contests/prizes and featuring adoptable pets from the Humane Society of Scott County.
Now here's the important part: you've got to have a Fun Card to get into everything at the fair----namely, the Grandstand Entertainment! The value of this prize: $120! Each Fun Card now sells for $60 each.
Below you can see the important information about getting the Fun Cards (in case you are not able to win)......
But here's how to win during the "McFadden & Evans" show. It's EASY.
Mix 96 welcomes John Mellencamp to the artist line-up in 2017. Mellencamp and opening act, Carlene Carter, will be rocking the stage Saturday night, August 5th.
Every morning during the initial giveaway period, McFadden & Evans will play a John Mellencamp "Song of The Day" between 6-9 a.m. Monday-Friday.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The only way you can know the correct "Song of The Day" is to repeatedly visit this blog site every morning to collect the info! (He's had many, many hits...so some of the songs you hear WON'T be the winning song!)
As soon as you hear the designated Mellencamp "Song of the Day", be the ninth caller to 563-344-7096 to WIN!
#9 on the phone line after the song hits the airwaves will get TWO FREE FAIR FUN CARDS!
It's that easy!
The John Mellencamp "Song of the Day" for Wednesday, July 5th:
"Hand to Hold On To"
Interesting recent revelation about how his smoking habit help him create exactly what he wanted out of his singing voice. Oh well, he's never gonna stop smoking (even after a heart attack!)....
