Thursday March 19th

Posted on Mar 19, 2015

Does anyone else just want this particular ZFX to be OVER?! I do! It consumes me, frazzles me, sucks up all my free time, and I just need to move on with my life. It will be guessed. Today. Some lucky bastard is going to get over $11,000, and probably over $12,000 by the time it is guessed. Will it be me? Probably not. I haven’t been caller 9 for anything Zed in about a year. It’s not likely to happen today! 

Sometime before 5pm, they are going to give us a hint to the ZFX. THANK GOD!!! (Or Crosby, who must be back from holidays and in shock that the jackpot is this high!) I have NO idea what the ZFX is, and I haven’t heard anyone else say they know it either. My (lame) guesses if I’d ever gotten through were “vcr ejecting” or “parking ticket validator”. So I picture their *subtle* hint going something like this: 

Ruby: what did you get up to last night Cruise?

Cruise: I spent the evening winding up my Jane Fonda exercise tape after it got stuck in the vcr when I ejected it.

Ruby: oh, that sucks. I had a similar night – my Visa got stuck in the parking validator machine at Save-On.

This will require listening intently between songs. Are you up for it? I am! I will have my portable in my ear every time I have to walk away from the radio – I will even listen in the shower (on my shower radio!) There are rush hours when I have to listen to 2 or 3 stations at once, but I would rather miss a name than miss the hint! It’s going to be a tricky day…

Zed’s hint-dropping day coincides nicely with Virgin’s $1000 Per Hour Day. At 10 minutes past each hour between 7am and 4pm, they will give $1000 to caller 25. It will probably rain, so I’ve just given you two REALLY good reasons to stay home and close to the radio!

JRFM has now called 6 of the 10 names for the Taylor Swift tickets. They sent out an email telling video submitters that their entry was accepted and reminding them to listen at 8:10 and 12:10. Seems a bit late for this email as there are only 4 names left, but it was still nice to have them acknowledge the entries. Good luck to the remaining 51 entrants!

The post with the overview of contests is HERE. It has more details than this schedule.

Docc at JRFM will have 4 passes to the Vancouver International Auto Show. 

Kiss has Nicki Minaj tickets with the KCS, times will vary probably. Virgin will have them with Denai (btwn 6 & 10pm), and Z95.3 will have them at 8pm with Emilie.

Breakfast Television’s theme for the Disney World trip is “Classic Disney”. Read more about that prize HERE. One winner was announced last week, there are two more trips to be won. The trip is on April 17th. 

Play Beat the Bank on QMFM 3 times per day. Also Kelly Clarkson with Nick Jonas tickets at 9:05 and 5:05.

Qualify for a trip to Mexico on CFOX at 8, 11, 2, and 5. (ish) 

Peak has announced the return of Peak It Forward. I wrote a post about it HERE.

Z95.3 has Z-FX at 8, 11, 2, and 5. Check all the previous guesses HERE before calling. Matty B has Kelly Clarkson with Nick Jonas tickets at 4.

LG104.3’s Mix Tape plays at 8, 11, and 4. Check their site for the picture clues – so far we only know that song 1 is Fleetwood Mac’s The Chain and song 2 is CCR’s Proud Mary. The jackpot starts at $2800 this morning. Song 3 has us all stumped!!! I love this game…

Jack has changed the times for their Musical Chairs text-in game! Play at 8, 12, and 4 instead – tweak your reminders! You can use Jackaholics points to win a bunch of stuff in the club.
