Only songs that are played from beginning to end will be used to solicit contest calls.

For texting contests in which entrants are asked to text specific information to a designated telephone line at a particular time or times (as announced by WMGK): At the time that texts are solicited, the criteria for winning will be announced (for example, first text message received with the correct answer). Only those text messages sent to the specific phone number provided, at the time texting is solicited, will be eligible to win. Texting to the main WMGK phone number or any other phone number are not eligible. Winners will be selected in accordance with the criteria announced when text messages are solicited.
