Tuesday the 12th

Posted on Aug 12, 2014

I am getting a late start with the schedule because this whole Robin-Williams-suicide thing kind of threw me for a loop! It’s not really shocking – it was a matter of WHEN, not IF – but it is undeniably tragic. The world is a little less funny now. It spotlights for me the darkness and pain that lies beneath the surface of every funny person I know.

Luckily, I am NOT funny. At all. I butcher the simplest of jokes, and make a complete ass of myself if I try to be entertaining. And my crazy shows on the outside, just ask my husband and kids… *sigh*… 😀

On to happier thoughts – what will YOU win this week?

I am beside myself, verging on desperation, anxious because I haven’t been caller 9 yet for Zed’s Vegas trip. *PANIC* Listen, if I don’t get into that breakfast draw, I may need to take a little time off. At least two days’ worth of whimpering in the fetal position is in order.

Speaking of Zed, they are giving away a pair of PNE gate passes ($16 each) to everyone who calls in a request during the 12 o’clock Takeover. Call in and make a request if you don’t want to go to the PNE on the free admission day (the 19th) with 40,000 other people.

The Beat is giving away Katy Perry tickets 4 times per day, but there’s a catch: you need to know the “phrase that pays”! And THAT is this:

“The Beat 94.5 is Vancouver’s #1 Hit Music Station”

Have you been collecting your Jackaholics points and buying your raffle tickets for that all-inclusive trip to Mexico? The draw is coming up on the 15th. That’s THIS Friday! So whether you bought one ticket or a hundred, be listening at 5:10 on Friday. Until then, keep collecting those points!
