Aha found them on Twitter, although looks like it's another one of those where you have to listen to the show to win:

Bugger. I won't get chance to listen to the radio really, what with being at work and everything. Why can't you just enter online with these things for god's sake?

Text the word Manics followed by the name of the tune the line "It's 12 o'clock from midnight" comes from.

Oh James, LYRICS FAIL on one of the Manics' most overplayed songs

So the only way we're finding out about these competitions is the odd chance post on Twitter and by e-mailing the bloody radio station ourselves. You'd think after 20 odd years someone somewhere at Sony would have figured out the whole point of promotion, but hey ho apparently not.

Have entered anyway, seen as this one is actually fairly local to me.

I know I so wouldn't have known about it if it wasn't for twitter! They could have made a big fuss about it but no! I entered and got a generic real radio text wonder what the process is...
