Capital FM is currently running a memory game on their radio station called ‘Capital FM Reconnect” and I got the opportunity to watch how the DJs carried it out live in action at their studio last week. It was actually my second visit to the studio (first time was last year, for a radio interview).
The memory game runs from 6th to 24th May 2013 and during the 3 weeks of contesting, listeners will have to guess the correct memory combination in order to win. You know the memory game card you used to play, where you have to choose 2 cards and flip them to see whether the pictures match? Well this is like that, except you cannot see the card, you have to listen! More challenging, eh? But you can download this template from Capital FM’s website to help you with the game.
Each numbered box actually represents different amount of cash and various aspirational prizes, and each caller gets to choose 2 numbered boxes and see whether they are a match. If the caller successfully match the two tiles, he/she wins whatever prize that is in the box – it could be an all-paid weekend getaway, spa packages, beauty products, cash of up to RM20,000 and many more. This games runs 6 times a day – twice on ‘Talk of the Town with Joanne and Xandria’, once on Capital Wave, twice on ‘The Jam Break with Debs and Non’, and once on ‘Groove Down with Priscilia’.
I arrived at the studio at around 9 am, where Joanne and Xandria were having their ‘Talk of The Town’ segment. I was quite surprised to see another person inside the studio. It was Naz, the TV presenter! Turned out, they have invited guests for the ‘Talk of the Town’ segment where they talked a wide range of topics with their guests, besides interviews and fun contests.
Then it was the memory game contest. The first caller of the day called and chose the 2 numbers from the boxes…. and guess what? SHE WON! Lucky woman!
All these whiles, I only listen to the DJs and songs on the radio but that day, I got to see with my very own eyes how they managed the cue to call and everything. I was like, “Ooo…macam tu rupanya”, all the time I was there. It was quite an experience!
