Monday the 9th

Posted on Feb 9, 2015

Happy Family Day!

This schedule is usually written the day before, so currently I’m sitting on the ferry returning to the mainland after a weekend in Victoria. It was a girls’ weekend with old high school friends and we had the most amazing weekend, full of giggles, guffaws, booze and debauchery. It was just what I needed!! Spa? Pfft. Give me some time away to get goofy and lazy with old friends and I am rejuvenated! Laughter is healthier than any diet or cleanse or facial. Ooh, my stomach hurts from laughing so much… NOT COMPLAINING!!! 😉

What was my point? Oh yes, I remember – I had some time in the hotel room to work on the schedule and got a good list going but still had lots left to check. I planned on finishing up the schedule on the ferry ride home because they have free wifi and great work stations. Well, wouldn’t you know it – the ferry has blocked most radio stations’ websites because they have audio streaming links! Whaaaaa…?! Damn it! The only sites I have access to are Z95.3, Sonic, and JRFM. These sites also have online streaming functions, but for god’s sake DON’T tell Bc ferries!!! LOL! Alas, I had already scoured those sites for contest info. Harumph.

So yes, the schedule is lacking and unsure and incomplete, but it’s a start. So check back later on Monday and things should be cleared up by 7am. It’s a stat holiday so many hosts have the day off, and the Waking Crew is away for the whole week (but it looks like the Secret Word will still be played.) Kevin and Sonia are away Monday for sure, but back on Tuesday with Not So Secret Word ( and HOZIER tickets!!!)

Okay, now for the nitty gritty:

Beat wins for Best Contest of the Week with incredible trips to Barbados! Listen for the cue to call at ten past each hour, between 8:10am and 7:10pm. Caller 25 qualifies for the next day’s draw. I have so much to say about this that I’m going to have to write a separate post for it. You can find that HERE.

The Peak has a fun contest to win your way into the Arkells’ private show in the Peak Lounge! Enter online by telling them what you would be willing to DO or GIVE to get in – all bribes will be carefully considered! 😉 Once you’ve entered, listen for your name at 9:30, 1:30, and 4:30 daily (and Sat and Sun at 10:30, 1:30, and 3:30). You can start entering now, and enter as often as you like, but each entry has to be different. Deadline for entries is Feb 17th. I think I read that you only get 10 minutes to call them back before they choose a new name, so if you enter but can’t listen at all three times, send me your info! I will call or text you if I hear your name. They start calling names on Tuesday.

Z95.3 wants to give you some BLING! Win a blindingly sparkly engagement ring by simply texting RING plus 3 words that describe your relationship to 953953. The winner will be announced Friday afternoon. This is a $10,000 Rock and it is gorgeous!!! No excuse not to enter really… is there??

Zed will also send someone to the Imagine Dragons concert, but only if they enter through the app. These easy entry contests are an excellent reason to download their app (plus the app has come in handy on SO many occasions!!!)

Nat and Drew will be playing the Newlyweddish game, where you call in, they call your spouse, and you play a “how well do you know each other” type of game. You must get 3 out of 5 questions correct to win. Winners get a night at Westin Bayshore plus $100 for Seawall Bar & Grill.

QMFM also wants to see your pet! Entry online and hope that Nat and Drew choose you. You win 4 tickets to the Pet Lovers Show plus a $100 gift basket from Urban Pets. The grand prize winner will get a 2 night getaway for them and their pet to Holiday Inn, and passes to the O’Keefe Ranch in Vernon.

TSN and Bro Jake would like to help you out this Valentine’s Day. When they tell you to, call in and tell them how you messed up, and why your partner deserves dinner at JOE Fortes plus a bracelet and earrings.

LG104.3 is also going to help you out! Enter online and you could win one of two romantic packages put together by Larry and Corrie. I would love to see this put to a vote to see which is the more popular package. On FaceBook you can see if more men or women prefer one over the other – fascinating!!! I’m such a geek…

Speaking of geekdom, I also LOVED that Jack announced a change to the Jackaholics Club! No, they’re not calling it the Freeloaders Club, thankfully. They are foregoing the Word of the Day and are just going to send you an email each Monday morning that has all the words in it. All your points in one place – NICE!!! Now they just need some new and interesting prizes to keep us going back. I haven’t spent my points because there haven’t been any raffles! :-/

I don’t know if the Staycation, tickets to Paradise, or Easy Money will be happening, so I’be left them out of the schedule for now.
