WAAAH I WON! Just got a phone call now (well actually I missed a call about an hour ago, figured it might be Real Radio, panicked for a bit, left a message and the lady just phoned me back now). Apparently my name + 1 will be on the guestlist and it starts at 6:30pm. She also said there'll be 50-60 people there, with some audience questions in between songs.

Can't believe I've won. Think this is the first Manics competition I've ever won.

It might be worth a try if you live nearby; I know other people on here did the same thing at other events and managed to get in.

I just filled out their contact form - and got an almost instant response from David Heane (who I think is on air now?) but he said the cut off point was 9am today but that I had the right answer.

How come the ONE DAY I didn't look at FD is the day of an exclusive session/gig in Sheffield!! Aaargh!

However I will not give up and I will not give in! Ie I will keep hassling them!
