As part of Granrodeo’s appearance late Monday night on the Redniqs radio show and the upcoming Osaka-jo G13 shows, FM802 is giving some autographed goods away … if you can predict what will happen at G13 correctly!

To enter, submit your answers to these three questions in this form:

  1.  What will be the first song played at Osaka-jo Hall? (answer with a song title)
  2. On 12/8, how many times will e-zuka call out “Osaka baby!”?
  3. On 12/9 during how many songs will Kiiyan take off an article of clothing (jacket, t-shirt, etc.)?

No deadline is given, but presumably you must enter before the first show starts on December 8th. And you must live in Japan.
