Triviathon

You can spend your New Years Eve with WRCO FM 100.9 and wrco.com as we will be bringing back one of our favorite radio events.  Triviathon began airing in the late 80's.  It was a spinoff of the long and successful radio trivia game that originated at UW Stevens Point.   Here in Southwest Wisconsin it became a yearly event.  After a few years off,  Triviathon returns to the radio this weekend.  It happens to be a Saturday night so that means I will be spinning all of our Those Were the Days favorites from the fifties through the eighties in between questions.  There will be a question approximately every ten minutes.  Teams have been registering this week.  If you would like to offically play along, you can call us at 608 647-2111 this week and we will get your info and give you your team i.d. number.  Many have told me that they are less competitive and would rather just play along at their leisure.  Some of the long time tenured teams are returning to play along with us.  It is so great to see those familiar team names!

The questions will come from various topics.  Entertainment, Sports, Music, and questions with local ties will be featured.  There might be one or two where you have to phone a friend instead of using your search engine.  All answers will be phoned in.  Our Solid Gold Dancers will be operating the phones and scoring.  They include: Beau Hinrichs,  Adam Hess, Chris Simonson,  Jo Ann Krulatz,  Todd Allbaugh, and Ken Thiede.  That is quite a crew!!!

It is going to be a blast and I hope that you can tune in between six and midnight Saturday when Those Were the Days meets Triviathon.
