Welcome to 97.5 the Rock!

What’s New?

POSTED OCTOBER 31, 2017

First of all…Happy Halloween!! Scary as it may seem the “Holiday Season” is upon us. We here at 97.5 the Rock are gearing up for a great give away. It’s going to be a “Grand” holiday season this year, because we are giving away 1 grand ($1000) to some lucky listener. You heard right Bradford National Bank and Excel Bottling are bringing you the 97.5 the Rock’s Grand Holiday Give-Away! We are currently in search of businesses who would like to participate in the fun by becoming a registration location. If you have or know a business who would like to bring in more foot traffic and get loads of publicity for a very LOW PRICE, then they will want to take part in this grand ol’ event. Check the link below for pricing. Along with the packages listed, all registration location businesses will be included in our 60 second promo spot that will run 8-10 per day during the months of November and December. They will also receive cross promotion via our website and Facebook page. Contact 97.5 the Rock via the contact us link above, by calling 618-594-2620 or sending email to sales@wdljfm.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
