Turn on the radio!    

It's Trivia 46, the world's largest trivia contest from 90 FM!  This 72 hour long trivia contest begins Friday, April 17 and ends Sunday night, April 19.  Tune in for some great music and interesting questions all related to the media!  See how well you can do!  

Here's how it works: 
 
Eight questions are asked over the 90FM airwaves each hour. Team contestants are given the length of time for two songs to play in which to respond with an answer. Each team is given one attempt to answer. All teams that respond correctly are given an equal share of the 2000 points that a question is worth, with a minimum of 5 points and a maximum of 500 points. There are two hours during the contest when only four questions are asked. This allows us time to read all of the team standings.  In addition to question, your Trivia Times guide will require you to answer questions based on pictures in that catalog and you team also needs to travel around town looking for clues to retreave the trivia stone! 
 
Take a drive around town and look for team signage outside of players' homes.
