You may have heard that JYJ’s XIA is going to be live in our studios performing on Friday and we’ve been giving away tickets all week on the Live@5 Radio Show. Because the competition is so popular, PopAsians are trying to get through all night and the phones never stop ringing! I thought I’d tell you what it’s like to be on the other end of the phone.
There are 12 phone lines into the PopAsia Studio. Thankfully when they ring, no actual noise comes out – imagine the sound from 12 phones ringing non-stop?
Lucky for us, a light on the phone flashes to tell us they’re ringing… and from 5pm each night, they start. At first, just one or two lines flash up. Then another 5, then they all stop, then a few start again. As soon as Jamaica starts to talk, they all light up again – it’s like the PopAsians are so excited to see XIA live that they’ve got the numbers 1-3-0-0-7-9-9-7-6 programmed into the phone and the second Jamaica talks, or a XIA song starts they put in the last number and start to call. So that’s why sometimes the phone just rings out if you’re trying.
The best way to increase your chances of winning is to have the number programmed in your phone, ring to get an idea of how long it takes to connect and then sit back and listen to the show… and wait for Jamaica to say those magic words “call now to win”. AND you would have already watched our interview for all the answers to all of Jamaica's questions right...? Right.
