Bay FM's Secret Sound

The Bay FM Secret Sound is here for Autumn 2017, and you could win some serious cash by working out our mystery sound! Starting Thursday5th October.

Check out our new Secret Sound below 

Our jackpot starts at a cool £100

which you will win just for identifying our mystery sound...

We’ll play once a day during weekdays – between 11am & Noon on The Bay FM Daytime Show with Andy and if it is not guessed the winning amount goes up by £5 each weekday to a top prize of £500 which will be capped until the sound is guessed correctly.

How to Play

To enter, just text SECRET SOUND and YOUR NAME to 07947 211 311.

It's a standard text message charge. 

Every competition round, we'll pick a contestant at random from all the texts received each weekday during the competition hour.

Only one entry per mobile number will be counted in the draw - there's no advantage in sending multiple texts.

If you've been chosen to play, we'll call your mobile number, if you don't answer the phone, we'll then select another contestant at random.

We will never ask you for your guess until you're playing on air. Any entries which include your guess on the text message will be automatically disqualified. 

Once you've played, you can enter again another day by texting as soon as you've come up with another guess.

And of course, if you correctly identify the Secret Sound, you'll win the money.

Good luck!
