Hmmm, it sounds like someone is opening something, a bottle, or a jar or something…
I have been trying to guess this crazy sound I have gotten through 2 times as caller 19 when it was 2200 and 2500 – i am still trying to guess.. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I am almost 100% sure of the sound, but I have never got through.
The first time I heard the sound, I thought I recognized it without any clues. The clues are all pointing to what I think that it is…I just gotta get through!
So Bucky what is your guess? I would split it 50/50 if i get through!! but you know i won’t get through any more.
I can’t put my guess out here for the world to see…hehe.
Whenever it is guessed, I will tell you honestly if it was what I think it is though.
Bucky email it to me and i will let you know if your guess haS BEEN SAID – i have all the guesses
Just post the guesses here, and we can keep the list updated.
I was caller #16 at 6:30pm yesterday. 😕
how do you guys know what number you are? every time i try call, i get a busy signal or a message that says all circuits are busy.
If and when you get through, the phone will ring, and the DJ will answer and tell you what number you are.
Aside from that, all your going to get is a busy signal. I’ve been trying to get through for several days, and the phone has only rang once…and that was yesterday when I was #16.
Sorry i was out sick today – no one has guessed the sound as of 4:00 – Do you have all the guesses Bucky?
No, I didn’t collect all the guesses.
Feel free to post them on here if you would like.
It sounds like an old school typewriter or adding machine.
It must be typewriter beyond all doubts…..or something else! 😎
No Typewriter has been said – has to do with SHAKE – BALL
Go Figure…. Haven’t been a caller today but i had meetings – will start playing again – i may know what this thing is.
I know exactly what it is! If I could only get through!
My wife was out in the yard doing something Sunday and what
she was doing sounded exactly like that sound. Just like we
had thought…I just can’t get through!!
Streaming the station via the website doesn’t help out much either
because there is a delay. By the time I hear the tones, caller 19 is
probably already making their guess.
You really have to think about some of the clues, and their relation
to the sound. I haven’t put my guesses up to some of the clues, because
that would completely give it away…and I want to win! I’m sure I’m
not the only one who knows what it is though.
Once this sound is guessed, a lot of people are going to realize how
simple and common this sound really is. 😉
Okay Bucky – i have been caller 19 twice and got through but not 19 today several times – give me a clue as to what your wife was doing in the yard – just email it to me.–email@example.com – i will split it 50/50 if you get the right answer and i get through as caller 19… my kids help me and like i said i usually get through but haven’t pushed it because i don’t know what it is — I know Shake – Ball – Jar alot of the clues refer to —- what other direction do i need to go?
Hey Bucky, I listen all day long, send me your guess and ill split it with you. I can call with three phones at the same time, (plus ive caught on to how to get through). Ive been caller 19 5 times on the other sounds but never had the right guess. 50/50 Bucky! email me Figgins123@aol.com
Anyone have any other ideas – not a winner yet.
I can’t divulge it…I gotta keep trying.
I was caller #17 today…lol
It is simple, if you don’t pay attention to the clues, and actually listen to the sound. You have probably heard it 100 times in your life.
i have been caller 4,8,and 12 in the 7:20 hour with 2 phones going. 😆
I have 3 people calling including myself, and none of us can get through using the 800 number.
I think I am going to try using the other phone number next time.
No i always use the 800 – i use my cell and a land line.
i was caller 12 again at 9:30
I don’t know how you keep getting through 🙁 …must be nice!
Bucky i was just caller 19 and i did not know it – see if you had told me we could be 1800 richer…. i would have split it with you…
Somehow i can get through don’t know what i am doing but i have struggled to hard and i know it is something simple but i don’t know what – if anyone cares to share it with me and i get through i will split it i promise 😆
Your the female that guessed it was sun-tan lotion being squeezed out into someones hand?…and if that was you, you should have gave a shout-out to my blog!..lol
That was the one and only me – i told you i didn’t know if you had told me we could be 1900 richer
TELL me – email it to me – I promised you i would split it 50-50 – i would never go back on my word – I would be very happy with 1900 what about you?
For some reason i have been getting through all day today – …. 😆
What is a shout-out i am new at this – never blogged before – just got it off the internet trying to look up those stupid clues…
Clue coming at 12:30 -almost 12:30
is it something that you use outside
easier to respond to emails
A shout out is just a mention of something.
They would have edited it out anyway…. 🙂
OMG, I was #18 😯
That is terrible 👿
I was caller #19 at 5:30.
My guess was just like everyone else’s…WRONG!…lol
I really thought that it was someone shaking a can of spray paint with
a ball in it, and then popping off the lid. Looks like I was wrong….
Back to the drawing board with the clue investigations!
I could have told you that was wrong – that was on my list- i heard you at 5:30 when they said Bucky from – i thought he has the answer that is they guy on the blogging – and when you started saying the spray can i thought no no no!!! Sorry i could have saved you on that one.
but i have another look at it…
Thsi is driving me crazy!!! the clues are leading in so many directions.
I don’t know who is coming up with the clues over at the radio station, but they need to help us out a little bit more!
I JUST STARTED LISTENING TO THIS SECRET SOUND AND JUST CURIOS WHEN DO THEY START DOING THE SOUNDS? AT WHAT TIME IN THE MORNINGS AND HOW OFTEN DO THEY DO IT THROUGHOUT THE DAY?
the sound is really hard to find look at the giggle and roll fisher price toy of the 90s
if I win – drinks on me!!! 🙂
Kim they do it every day starting at 7:20 till 6:20pm
Contest is over!
It was “Shaking a downy ball and pulling the stopper”.
I would have never guessed that!
If you guys would like, I will make a new list and crop the sound out for the next contest the same way I did this one.
That would be very helpful. Although, I think I need a break from this game. It has consumed me.
I was Caller 19 this morning! – sounds like a common sound… just don’t know yet.
your lucky…all I get is caller one, twelve, eighteen. I missed so many guesses so when I do get thru it more than likely was already guessed.
I have yet to get through to try and guess this new sound.
Hey guys, I put up a different page with the new clues for this sound here:
K92 Radio Secret Sound #5
The new 2008 Secret Sound contest is underway!
Good luck everyone!
