Book your tickets for the Slugger Awards

Welcome to any U105 listeners! This is just a quick note to let you know that you can get your tickets for the awards online now – hurry before they’re all gone! Also, nominations are still open (see the appropriate ‘threads’ below the follow). Please visit them and give us your suggestions. Remember, we’re being a bit more attentive to these threads than most and we’re enforcing something of a ‘positivity rule’ – we want know who you do like, not who you don’t!
