To win tickets on ‘Tickets @ 2′ between two and three listen for “The Rubberband Man” by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Spinners[/lastfm].

It’s about a guy who makes incredible sounds with a rubber band stretched between his toes, simulating the bass line. The Spinners’ producer, Thom Bell, wrote this for his son.

In 2004 it was used in commercials for OfficeMax. It introduced the “Rubberband Man” character pushing a cart around the office anticipating all the office supply needs of the staff.

It got as high as # 2 on music chart in 1976.

We’ll take lucky caller 13 to win a pair of tickets to see classical pianists: The 5-Browns, and dinner for two at Panera Bread. 1-800-232-KRTH. (5784)
