b.   There is no limit to the number of times a listener can try to call in and win.  A listener may only win one Prize during the Sweepstakes, and only one winner per household can win during the run of the Sweepstakes.  For this Sweepstakes only, restrictions that would prevent a listener from winning if he/she had won another recent CBS radio station contest or sweepstakes will not apply.

c.   Neither the participating stations nor their licensee entities or corporate parent, CBS Radio Inc., nor their affiliated entities (collectively, “CBS”) will be responsible for telephone service outages, delays, interruptions, busy signals, equipment malfunctions and any other technical difficulties or for any medical emergencies which may interrupt or prevent completion of a telephone call.
