I t all started one day last September when I heard my favorite classic rock station ask, "Would you like to win a trip to Las Vegas?" To which I instantly replied to whoever could hear me, "Well of course I would, are you nuts?" The announcer then proceeded to explain that several times during the week they would announce the contest and you had to be the tenth caller in order to get your name in the drawing.
