Tuesday and stuff

Posted on Dec 9, 2014

I leave for Vegas Wednesday morning. I will be there by 1pm. I can’t even believe it!!! It’s just so surreal. We are staying that the Hard Rock, which is off the strip by a few streets but still close enough to walk. The first evening we will walk over to Freemont Street and stop at Pawn Stars along the way. The second night will be spent at the hotel, with the Imagine Dragons concert just downstairs. I CANNOT WAIT!!! Yes, we are poor. No, I won’t be able to have any spa treatments or shop for souvenirs or eat out or buy things. But we will stop at the Vons on the way to the hotel, grab groceries and beer, and entertain ourselves with street entertainment and tv in the hotel room. Some time we will do Vegas in style. This is not that time. But two nights with no kids kicking my back while I sleep will be ah-mazing!!!

Here’s what’s happening today. I likely won’t do a schedule Wed – Fri, as there probably won’t be anything new to add. But you never know – I might get inspired if I have free wifi! LOL! I’ll take my iPad just in case. 😉

Again this week JRFM is giving away that nice leather recliner during Docc’s show in the afternoon. Listen from 2 till 6 for your chance at this nice, comfy prize. JRFM also has tickets to Beauty and the Beast between 9 and 2.

It’s Day 4 of the 12 Days of JAKEmas on TSN1040. Today you could win a weekend stay at The Londen Hotel. It’s a boutique hotel downtown, and it includes Sunday brunch. Sweeeeet!!! Listen every hour of Bro Jake’s show to win.

Rock 101 has the Christmas Cash Track announcement at 7:15, and the song will play before 6pm. Caller 10 (at the END of the song) wins a $500 prepaid Visa card. Yesterday it played just before 5. Unfortunately Craig apparently didn’t know the rules – he took caller 10 as soon as the song STARTED instead of when it ENDED like he was supposed to. This enraged me, as I’d waited all frigging afternoon for that song! BLARGH!!! Alas, I can’t stay mad at Craig for long – he’s like a Saint Bernard, kinda drooly but sweet. Anyway, I will be listening for the song during Willy’s show. It will play before 10. Listen for Start Me Up by the Stones.

QMFM has tickets to Fleetwood Mac during Olivia’s show from 10-3, and also during Ray’s show from 3 till 8. They will only have these today and Wednesday. I wonder what’s happening Thursday?? Maybe a new concert announcement? Anyway, You can also enter HERE to win tickets online. They also have a date night package which includes dinner, a stay in a hotel, and VSO plays Vivaldi tickets, enter online HERE.

QMFM also has Andrea Bocelli tickets with the midday and afternoon shows, between 10am and 8pm.

Z95.3 will announce the Santa Song at 8. Yesterday it played around 1pm, maybe it’ll be earlier today? The song is Walking in a Winter Wonderland by Eurythmics and it will play between 9:30 and 9:45, AND 3 to 3:15.

Sonic is sending someone to Vegas to see Pitbull in concert. They will be taking qualifiers 4 times per day, once with each show. Also twice per day on the weekend, which is nice.
