Monday March 2nd
Let’s start this post on a personal note: my douche neighbours are staring at my kids again. I put up a sign that only THEY can see (passers by can’t see it) telling them it’s creepy. I told my husband I’m tired of living like a testicle – trapped between a prick and an asshole!
On a semi-personal note: the app I use for my post images has updated, and I can finally put the colour back into my website! Yaaay! It’s been a challenge to make the letters stand out against the white background.
And now let’s get down to real business: things are about to get crazy. And I mean C-R-A-Z-Y! The stations are pulling out all the stops and showering us with lovely gifts!
On Thursday, The Beat turns into 94.5 Virgin Radio. How weird is THAT?! Used to be Virgin 953 and now it’ll be Virgin 945. Hmmmm… doesn’t sound that bad, actually…
Another interesting thing I happened to see this weekend – Toronto’s CHUM radio (which is basically the same as The Beat and owned by Bell) is also taking listeners to Barbados! They will be down there at the same time as us, but they will be staying at the Sandals Resort (which is adults-only). They are traveling on the same dates because they also will be attending the One Republic concert on the beach! Here’s the kicker though – they are giving away 35 trips (we have 25), and their winners get $1500 cash (ours get $1000). Huh. Their times to qualify are much more spread out – from 6:10am to 11:10pm – which gives listeners a much bigger window (so they can call from home if they aren’t allowed or able to call from work), but there are 14 qualifiers per day. Each prize is worth $8300, though the flights cost less from Toronto (we have to fly through Toronto to get to Barbados). Huh.
I am in NO WAY complaining about this – it was just interesting, that’s all. Toronto is 4 times the size of Vancouver proper, so the competition there must be much tougher! 😀
I wrote a post about this week’s contests, you can read the overview HERE. It has all the juicy details! If you haven’t read that post, please do – it has important details that are not included in THIS post!
Here’s the recap:
Jack FM has a fun contest for Lion King tickets – video yourself singing one of the songs from the Lion King and send it in.
Peak – Dirty Car Words at 7, 11, 2, 5, and 7.
Breakfast Television will have Lion King tickets, watch for the daily code word to enter.
Get your name in the draw for that trip to Barbados on the Beat at ten minutes past each hour between 8am and 7pm.
QMFM’s famed Beat the Bank starts today! Play 3 times per day!
QMFM and the Beat have Squamish Valley Music Festival tickets throughout the day.
Qualify for a trip to Mexico on CFOX at 8, 11, 2, and 5. (ish)
Z95.3 is baffling us again with Z-FX at 8, 11, 2, and 5. What the hell is that sound?!?!
LG104.3’s Mix(ed) Tape starts at 8, and plays at 11 and 4 too. It’s called a MIXED tape, not a MIX tape. Amirite?? Oh, maybe I’m not right… LOL! Anyway, this will be loads of fun and I can’t wait to make my hubby play! 😀
Listen for “Smooth” by Santana on Rock 101.
