Monday the 24th

Posted on Nov 24, 2014

Pssssst! Guess what?! Christmas is coming! It’s time for you and I to win presents for our family and friends. I certainly can’t afford to buy anything for anybody – if I don’t win it, they’re all getting home baked gingerbread cookies! I’ll make some for you too if you want some. 🙂

If you know Z95.3’s 1K Weekend Artist (Taylor Swift), call in at 6:40 to win $500. If you know the answer to the random question (probably the lyrics to one of her songs), you could win another $500. The songs that played are:

We Are Never Getting Back Together
Shake It Off
I Knew You Were Trouble
Love Story

Yes, only four. Two were played twice. Which is great – you’ll have a 25% chance of picking the right song! 😉

Also on Z95.3, today begins my favourite X-mas contest! It’s the Santa Song of the Day, which will win you a $500 gift card for Metrotown! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Who couldn’t use one of THESE at this time of year! I definitely do, since I didn’t win $2000 for my silly Gold Digger video (neither did 7 others -congrats to Athena B! I’m thinking since the best video won, maybe it’s not quite so random. LOL!) The song will play between 8am and 6pm.

The Peak is starting another round of enter-your-words-before-midnight-to-get-in-the-draw, this time it’s for a trip to Cuba. Ummm… OKAY!!! I will listen for those words 5 times per day if I can. I will post the ones I catch. They will be announcing one winner EACH DAY at 8:30. You don’t have to be listening to win. Sweet!!

JRFM is giving away a trip to the Dominican again every day this week. Listen for the Sunshine Band to interrupt songs, the times are listed in the schedule. It’s been impossible for me to get through. My husband went out and bought me a new phone this weekend (he’s the best!) – we’ll see if that helps!

Also, Clay will be blowing the holidays. Yup, he’s going to attempt to play a song by blowing on bottles (what did you think I meant?!). If you guess it, you win an advent calendar made with craft beer bottles! Gosh, I hope they’re not empty bottles. I love beer…

One more thing: the Waking Crew have a concert announcement this morning – Purvey spilled the beans on the weekend, it’s Keith Urban! Maybe they’ll have tickets to give away? If not today, then surely sometime soon…

Rock 101 is giving away cash! My favourite!!! Actually it’s a pre-paid credit card. Same thing. Listen for the Christmas Cash Track which will be announced at 7:15 each morning. The song will play before 6pm. Be caller 10 when you hear it. This starts on Tuesday, as they are giving away the car today.

QMFM has tickets to the Nutcracker and $250 for Future Shop’s Black Friday Sale during Olivia’s show, 10-3. Ray has tickets to The Tenors between 3 and 8. I think Nat and Drew may have something up their sleeve too. Let’s wait and see…

The Beat is also giving away $250 Future Shop gift cards during Chris Palliser’s show between 9 and 2. Also, if you enter online you could win a 4 pack of tickets to the Christmas Market, and be entered to win the grand prize of 4 tickets plus a magical night out. I have no idea what that means, but it’s a $500 prize, so maybe it’s dinner and a hotel? No idea…

CFOX is again sending people to Sin City for 5 more days. OMG I could totally use a vacation! So I will listen for “Fever” by The Black Keys and try desperately to be caller 9!

LG104.3 will have Bryan Adams tickets with Back-to-Back Bryan.

It’s a Million Dollar Birthday Monday at Sonic. It’s the last one. I hope you win a million dollars. #CouldHappen

Jack is giving away that trip to Antigua at 8:10. If you’re in the draw, be listening! If you can’t listen, let me know and I’ll call you if it’s you. You get 10 minutes to call back. If you don’t win, no panic – they start all over again at 9:40! The next draw will be on December 1st. Wouldn’t that be a lovely Xmas present!!! 😀

Breakfast Television will have tickets to the Canucks game on the 13th against New York. Watch at 6:10, 7:10, and 8:10 to win. Also, tune in at 8:50 to win a Yaletown getaway, the first prize in their 15 Days of Giving.

As usual, the schedule will be updated later in the day as websites are updated with new contests. I’m sure I’ve missed a few things so come back later and check…
