Remembrance Day week

Posted on Nov 9, 2014

Tuesday will be quiet as the stations observe Remembrance Day. A shoutout to the stations that put up large Remembrance Day posts on their home page:

An Honorable Mention to those that put a poppy in their logo:

No surprise that TSN didn’t even mention Remembrance Day, but I was surprised that CFOX didn’t even put up a poppy – this omission does not by any means represent their listenership, many of whom go to Remembrance Day ceremonies, wear poppies, and honour the fallen. I wish this day wasn’t a holiday, but not why you might think. My thoughts on that HERE.

But anyway…

Here is this week’s schedule (so far!). Check back later today or on Wednesday for updates.

If you know Z95.3’s 1K Weekend Artist (Katy Perry), call in at 6:45 to win $500. If you know the answer to the random question (probably the lyrics to one of their songs), you could win another $500. The songs that played are:

I Kissed a Girl
Hot N Cold
Teenage Dream
California Girls
Dark Horse

I noticed that someone ELSE submitted an All About That Cash video – thank you!!! It’s really cute, too. You should go watch it. Maybe it’ll give you some inspiration for your own. 😉

QMFM is taking 30 listeners to Mexico with them in January from the 13th to the 20th! They won’t play on the 11th, but that day’s prize was reserved for the online contest. It’s still up on their site in the Rules & Regulations, but I’m not sure that they will actually be doing that part of the contest – they had to give away an extra trip last week so they might be short one. We will see if they put up a link on their site on the 21st at 7:15am…

QMFM also has a VSO date night package prize, enter HERE. There are no Rules & Regulations listed for it, so I don’t know when the contest ends. The concert is on the 21st, so maybe we can still enter this week. Give the link a try and see what happens! 😀

Speaking of date nights, here’s a different kind of date from TSN – 2 days of skiing with your family at Big White! This would be a lovely little getaway, with 2 nights’ accommodations on the hill, plus four 2-day ski passes. All you have to do to enter is submit a picture of you or your loved one in the most hideous ski suit they’ve ever worn. Most entries are from the 80’s – the era of bold colours and fanny packs. LOL! Go enter HERE.

Bro Jake will also have Nickelback tickets during his show. I saw Nickelback about 10 years ago when they were hot and it was a fantastic show! I’d see them again.

You have one last chance at 7am to get into Monday’s 8am draw for Lotto 93.7 – $10,000!! I’m not in Monday’s draw. But I’m hoping to get into NEXT Monday’s draw – it’s for $15,000! Docc will be doing this week’s draw – Clay is in Portland drinking microbrewery beer, and Karen is walking Roxy around Granville Island (I presume, as she hasn’t tweeted anything in DAYS!)

The Beat is sending one listener to New York to see Sam Smith! Wow, what a cool prize that would be! If you’ve never won one of their online contests, now would be the time to enter. Do it HERE.

Oh yeah, and also Beat is taking people with them to Mexico. I could sure use a vacation…

Rock 101 is still qualifiers for the car and bribing people with cash at 8, 11, 2 and 5.

CFOX is sending people to Sin City – listen for “Fever” by The Black Keys.

Jack is taking qualifiers for the Antigua trip at 7:40, 9:40, 11:40, 2:40, and 4:40. At 8:10 today they will do another draw for the trip – winner has 10 minutes to call back. If you’re in the draw, BE LISTENING!!! They MAY have Disney On Ice tickets again this week, but I’m not sure (damn, I wish they’d fix that website!) The site says you can win DOI tickets with No Time to Google, but it also says the NTG prize is $100. Do you get BOTH?? I guess we’ll see…

Jack’s secret Win at Work contest continues for at least another 2 weeks. I’m less and less inspired to search for the people – is it worth dragging them out of bed or a meeting for $100? Meh, not really. On the other hand, when they win even $100 they are SO HAPPY! They will love Jack forever! It’s really quite a clever contest – what are the odds that people will hear their name?!

LG104.3 will have Fleetwood Mac tickets right up until the show, so that means keep listening for back to back Mac! My husband listened to this station all day at work on Friday and he thoroughly enjoyed it. He said, rather dejectedly, that WE are their demographic. LOL! He also said that it was weird how Graham Hatch said EXACTLY what he was thinking after the songs. So funny! BIG love to prostate-cancer-survivor Graham! I don’t think your ‘stache looks “greasy”… If you join LG for their Mo-vember campaign, you can win your way into their shaving party at Harley Davidson and be in to win a weekend in Whistler – sweet! Start growing and go enter HERE!

Breakfast Television will have Canucks tickets for their January game against the Ducks. Watch to win at 6:10, 7:10, and 8:10.

The Peak, Sonic, and JRFM will update their sites later on Monday morning so watch for updates later in the day.
