The radio station giveaway requires you to tell "in 30 words or less, why should your business be taken over?"
This morning (4/25/12) at 9am anyone who was listening to 93.1 WXRT in Chicago heard Lin Brehmer announce that Washburn Guitars was this week’s winner of their “Corporate Takeover”. The on-air staff mentioned that we won because of the ‘dedication and hard work of everyone at Washburn Guitars in honoring their legacy of building great guitars in Chicagoland for 130 years’... They went on to reminisce about a guitar that we had “graciously donated” in 1993 in conjunction with an event involving a John Hiatt (longtime Washburn endorser) show, which means that we had a much longer mention than most winners usually get.
As winners, WXRT will come to Washburn's headquarters and bring free stuff from the station and Dairy Queen, Fisher Nuts, Cubby Bear Root Beer and Live Nation.
