South Orange, N.J. – Whether you are in a relationship or not, anticipating the arrival of Valentine’s Day can be a fraught experience. At WSOU, we know that some listeners love Valentine’s Day, while others loathe it. That is why the station is celebrating the pending arrival of cupid with “14 Days of Heartbreak.” For the first two weeks of February, WSOU is giving its listeners and followers the opportunity to win a signed CD, vinyl record, poster, merch, or other items from their favorite bands.  Featured artists include Anthrax, Clutch, Misfits, and Hatrebreed, among others.


“We’ve all been through a lot in 2020, so let’s start out this new year with something exciting,” said WSOU Promotions Director Valentino Petrarca. “As a fan of music myself, there is nothing more thrilling than getting a merch item signed by your favorite band. We at WSOU hope to give back to our fans by allowing them that opportunity. These giveaways are to reward people for being supporters of WSOU, as well as being a fan of music.”

Listeners can follow the station’s social platforms @wsou to learn about specific time frames for every giveaway.  In addition to on-air giveaways, 14 Days of Heartbreak will also feature two special contests over social media on Feb. 7 and Feb. 14.


“Valentine’s Day can be a challenging holiday and the pandemic has raised everyone’s anxiety level,” noted Petrarca. “Regardless of how they feel about Valentine’ Day, we know our listeners love WSOU. 14 Days of Heartbreak is our way of creating a little fun and excitement for our fans.”
