Let’s talk about a prize I want!
Let’s talk about a prize I want!

I love the prizes we give away at STAR 102.5. I’ve worked at radio stations (a lot of them) that don’t giveaway nearly as much as this radio station does, or the quality of prizes we do. Having worked in Denver and St. Louis, that is saying something.

I love free stuff. To be honest, that is how I got a job working in radio. When I was in high school I used to win on the local radio station in the Black Hills of South Dakota all the time. I won a Wind Board when I was in high school from KSQY in Deadwood, South Dakota. (a surf board with sail on it) I was always winning cds from the local college radio station. The college radio station knew I was a big fan and that was how I first got to work at a radio station. They offered me an air shift when I was still in high school. (Probably so I would no longer be eligible to win prizes!) Eventually I even worked at KSQY!

This week I am giving away this amazing gift bag from the Indianola Downtown Merchants for Lyrical Pursuit. This Friday, April 12th they are having a Girls Night on the Square with great deals, wine, and great times. This gift bag is so cool! I started going thru it and was floored by not only how much stuff was packed in there, but how much stuff I wanted! (So now of course that means I’ll be hightailing it down to Indianola for this Girl’s Night Out!)

I took some pictures of what was inside, and I had to actually take three separate photos to fit everything in! But I also want to list everything because it is going to blow your mind!!
