We’ll play a Mystery Sound three times daily – Monday-Friday between 7:00am-8:00am with Codi and Nida, and afternoons between 1:00pm-2:00pm, and 4:00pm-5:00pm with Steve Boyton. What could it be? That’s for you to guess. A blender? Hairdryer? Pin dropping — the possibilities are endless!
The 9th caller gets one guess. Solve The Jewel 98.5 Secret Sound, and you qualify to win A European River Cruise. The Jewel 98.5 Secret Sound continues until it’s correctly identified. How long will it take you to solve Jewel 98.5’s Secret Sound? Instantly? Two days? Three days? Keep an eye on this page for clues for those difficult sounds.
Plus listen ALL DAY for BONUS PLAYS, where we give you EXTRA chances to identify The Jewel 98.5 Secret Sound and set sail.
Our latest sound, unveiled Monday morning with Codi & Nida is not shuffling cards. Also, it’s not jeans or paper ripping. And it’s not a zipper.
Congratulations Diane Garceau, with maybe some help with the CLUE/HINT that we posted on this page, is our latest qualifier by identifying:
