We'll show all the entries online at during the show and here on this page, then Scott and Newsman Extraordinaire Jeff Lemucchi will choose their favorites.

• Second place gets $25 to Pappy's BBQ

• For any other noteworthy photos, we have the first-ever batch of First Look coffee mugs to hand out

Of course, the real prize is getting Scott to eat his words about Instagram. Yes, we're throwing down the gauntlet!

    On Friday’s “First Look with Scott Cox,” listeners were treated to a cafe-style acoustic performance by Bakersfield music legend Monty Byrom. “Meet Me at Midnight” was heady tune of intimate vocals reminiscent of Bakersfield’s dustier days. It calls for a live audience to engage themselves in daydreams of late summer evenings and nostalgic encounters. It’s a song that thrums to a local rhythm. Tickets:
