November 2019 Great Radio Auction: Big & Medium Ticket Items
Here’s how the Whoopee FM Great Radio Auction works! When you hear an item you like described on the air, call 413-499-3333 and tell the bidding operator how much you’d like to bid, what the item is (as we have multiple items on the bidding table at any given time), and a contact phone number. When the sold bell rings, if you are the high bidder you win! If your bid was indeed the highest, you will receive a call back from our call back operators telling you that you won the item. They will give you a confirmation number. Write that number down and bring it to the radio station 211 Jason Street, Pittsfield during auction item pickup hours (listed below). Pay with cash, check or credit card, then go to the merchant with your gift certificate and enjoy!
Please Note: Even though you made it through to the operator, you are not assured the item unless someone calls you back with the confirmation number.
