Details of the Competition:

1   To enter the Competition an Entrant must send a text message with the word BAY to 82122 (the “Text Message Line”). Text messages will be charged at standard network rates.  The Text Message Line will be open continuously from 4pm on Friday 18th May 2018 until 4pm Friday 25th May 2018. All texts received will go into a draw for the presenter to select a contestant each weekday afternoon during the competition period.  A contestant will be drawn at random from all entries. If contestants can’t answer at the time of the pre-recorded competition (between the hours of 2pm and 5pm), they will be put back into the draw until the following day and another contestant will be drawn.

3   One contestant each weekday must answer as many music related questions in a minute as possible.

4   The number of questions asked within the minute is variable according to the speed in which the player answers. A clear answer must be given in order to progress to the next question. A player cannot “pass” and must say a word other than “pass” to move on to the next question.

5    Ultimate discretion on the validity of an answer rests with the Heart Wales presenter or producer

6   Once the audible indicator that the minute has elapsed has sounded no further answers will be counted. If they are given but deemed by the presenter or producer to be after the sound they will not be counted.
