Sure, you can waste your money Wednesday on a Powerball ticket. The 42-state lottery game's jackpot is expected to be around $425 million dollars. Odds are not in your favor, though. As I mentioned on my afternoon show, you've got a better chance of dying from a bee sting (1 in 6 million), getting attacked by a shark (1 in 11 million) or making a hole in one in golf (1 in 13,000) than you do hitting the Powerball jackpot (1 in 175 million).
In our final Classic Cash Song contest Thursday, your odds are better of winning the $1,000 prize than being flashed by Willie York downtown. The Classic Cash Song is "Money For Nothing" by Dire Straits. Listen to GLO on Thursday between 9a-5p. That song will play once during the day. When you hear it, wait 'til the song ends, then begin to call 676-95-95. Caller 95 will win our final $1,000 in our November contest.
