Tuesday the 13th

Posted on Jan 13, 2015

Huh. Well, Monday was a bust! I got through for Jack a few times, but wasn’t the right caller. Which is totally fine, because Kieran’s such a sweetheart. I noticed today that they have a new DJ! Did you know that Meredith is now at CFOX?? I think that’s a PERFECT fit! The new guy on Jack is Rick Lee – he’ll be doing the 10 to 3 spot on Jack. I look forward to listening to him!

JRFM – Red Solo Cup. What can I say?? It was as fun as I had expected! The 7pm caller guessed correctly and won herself a trip to Vegas – congrats Michelle!! *so jealous* Unfortunately some of the DJs won’t tell you which caller they’re taking, so it’s a bit of a crap shoot. It’d be nice if they did, since you’re more inclined to keep redialing if they’re taking caller 7 or above. But if they’re taking caller 6 or less, there’s almost no point in hitting redial if you get a busy signal. But they can do whatever they want (as Docc so eloquently pointed out on Twitter today, you may have seen the exchange. I think the wedding pressure is getting to him, he seems a bit snarky. Or maybe he just doesn’t like me. I’m trying really hard not to take it personally, but I must admit I’m a bit disappointed by his suggestion…)

Anyway, at the risk of giving someone the upper hand, please check my Red Solo Cup Guesses post (HERE) to see which ones have been guessed before you call. Unless you’re calling at 7am, that is.

Beat – if you’ve signed up for Beat Your Bills and want me to call you if I hear your name, send me your name and phone number to I will text or call you if your name is said. Of the 3 names said on Monday, only 1 called back (that I heard anyway). Hopefully YOUR name is coming up!

Z95.3 – the winning song is Happy by Pharrell. I doubt it’ll play today, but you just never know! So keep listening!!

Rock 101 – Sounds like Craig was in for Dean today. I tried so hard to get through at 7, 2 and 5, but no luck. We all know why I won’t try at 11…

CFOX – for SURE the Jeff O’Neil Show returns today! I’ll be tuning in to hear how their… er… holidays went. They will be giving away 4 passes to the Big Ass Football Party, plus tix to Steel Panther, and also tix to the ECCW Ballroom Brawl.

Sonic gave away their Grammys trip, but I didn’t hear if they have a new contest.

Jack is still taking qualifiers for a staycation at Silver Star. Plus the dinner on the boat with Kieran. Cool. Also today, Kiah and Tara Jean’s text of the morning wins Bryan Adams tickets!!! GAH!!! I would’ve LOVED these!!! Instead I’m going to the Grape Debate. And I can’t drink wine. *weep*

Peak – win your way in to the Dan Mangan concert in the Peak Lounge by collecting the words that rhyme with Dan each day, and entering them in your VIP account. Winners are announced the next morning.

Breakfast Television has a sweet getaway to one of New Your Times’ top 52 places to see in 2015 – Squamish!! This prize will include hotel, dinner, Sea to Sky gondola, etc. Nice! Watch at 6:10, 7:10, and 8:10 to win.

As an aside, 136 people visited my site yesterday, and someone from Industry Canada in Ottawa spent a lot of time reading my Alarm Bells post. Either I’m in trouble, or Bell is. LOL! Or they were just following it up and nothing will be said to either of us. Either way, veeeeery interesting. I hadn’t previously heard of Industry Canada, so it was fascinating to learn what they’re about. (that’s in case you’re interested)
