Heart FM competition - anyone listen to this?
Who are the mystery people then?
And are the voices disguised slightly as my friend says?

If their mystery voices are as limited as their playlist, then it shouldn't be too difficult

Heard this today. It is impossible to get who it is!

When I last listened at 1pm the prize fund was up to 25,300 (going up 100 every wrong guess - once an hour).

How long will a competition like this go on for before they scrap it if no one gets it? And do Global have that money to give away if someone did get it?!

Great competion - heard it being played over the last few weeks and whilst many will knock the bigger groups like Global, they know how to do things properly. I was travelling into the South/East this morning and caught one of the worst breakfast shows I have heard for a while. The presenter who I recognised from a London station (I think on one previously), attempt a mystery voice type competition, executed very very badly! Indeed the whole competition concept was awful.

Bam Bam on Jack ?

Do like this competition, as said its a great idea. Used to love the old Gcap/GWR Secret sound competition. Some of those prize funds went up to around 10k and thats just a single site.

This competition has been going on for 11 weeks and no one has got a single voice right so fa.

Surely there must of been hundreds if not thousands of guesses it only makes me think that these voices are of people so far of the celebrity list and people that virtually no one has ever heard of.

What do others think ?

How long is this going on for? Heart in Sussex has a competiton called Who's On Heart going. It seems to have been going on forever! Basically there are three celebrity voices. One says Who's the second says on and yes you guessed it, the third says Heart. 11 weeks on and no one has got one voice right. Every hour the DJ calls someone to have a go at guessing the voices. Name one and win 1000, name two and win 5000. Name all three and win the rolling jackpot which is now 60000! Now you know what will happen. The caller gives three random names. Lets say Jonathan Ross, Gok Wan and Barbara Windsor! The dj then gives a huge drumroll build up and announces the caller has none right. This is now getting boring!! For gods sake someone get one right and end this never ending competiton once and for all! And supposing one name is right but in the wrong order. WHat then? And how much longer will this go on? It could last for years!

It a network competition. Yes we know about this in many threads. Im surprised there isnt been any clues given out, it's hidden in the music.

If you find it boring stop listening & email your station to tell them so. Maybe the powers to be at Heart will then do something about it?

The fact that you're all talking about it here means it's doing the job it's been designed for; namely to create 'talkability' about the comp/station. It's what's known as a water cooler moment when friends and workmates speculate on the answer, the wrong guess and what they'd spend the money on if they got through and actually won!

I predict it will be won by May 4th...otherwise continuity will not make sense on Atlantic with people saying how long its been going on for....unless Cornwall somehow gets opt outs until it finishes

In the past it was always a mystery sound, or mystery thingy... identifying the celebrities has just refreshed the idea a bit.

The fact all the morons are getting wound up about it on here shows it's working.

And Southern Sound, (as was) was doing something similar in '88 when they launched 'The Name Game'. The jackpot would increase by 25 per play (100 each day it wasn't guessed correctly!)

Exactly.. the mystery voice competition has been done across UK radio for years. I remember hearing other Bauer stations doing it years ago.

Wave 105 did it. Went on for ages. They eventually started giving out incorrect guesses/clues.

On another note Jack fm is running a similar competition but with it's audience as the voices.

The icing on the cake would have been if the caller had requested a One Direction song at the end!
