WAKE promoted itself heavily through advertising and an impressive array of listener promotions, at least during the period of Bartell ownership.  There were contests, on-air games, membership clubs.  All these "extras" played a big part in creating an audience of very loyal listeners, and
WAKE
was forever The Atlanta Leader in the ratings.
