Thursday May 21st

Posted on May 21, 2015

I was walking in a store on Tuesday and I heard what I thought was Jack FM’s afternoon DJ say “listen tomorrow morning for a contest announcement.” There was no announcement. What I probably heard was “listen tomorrow morning for a concert announcement.” So not only are my eyes failing me (I desperately need more than reading glasses but can’t afford an eye exam, let alone new glasses!), it turns out that my hearing is also faltering. Or maybe it’s just my attention span. Or my Give-A-Shit needs new batteries… I think they sell those in VEGAS! ;D

It’s been a crazy busy week and I’ve barely had time to listen to the radio – how is JRFM’s Shania contest working? Is it good? Is it fun? Is it hard??

Z95.3 hasn’t played the $10,000 song yet this week. By the way, I learned that people with the Zed App were told that the contest was extended. Apparently that’s the secret club where all the insider info is found. Huh. If I sat at a desk and had nothing better to do all day, I’d stalk it! Unfortunately, you can’t scroll back on it – you can only see the previous 30 minutes of chat. If you missed something, too bad for you. I prefer Twitter where I don’t have to go cross eyed trying to keep up with conversations, which can happen at lightening speed on the app. I can go back to any time or even day and see what they talked about. 

Meanwhile, keep Zed’s Home Page open on your screen and refresh it often – if the lightbulb on the banner goes dark, be the first caller through to win a trip to Vegas. VEGAS! As there are no rules available for this one, I’m going to assume it’s only going to happen once. My bet is that the light will go out on Thursday (as the advertiser probably paid for 1 week and it was posted last Thursday), and the song will play Friday. And now that’ve said that, the complete opposite will happen! LOL!

Ok, what the hell is going on with LG?! Their list of Recently Played says that Do Ya Think I’m Sexy played at 4:31, but it actually played at 5:30ish. They told us it would play between 4:30 and 5. It did not. And it seems that ALL of the songs are listed an hour behind! Did someone forget to reset the computer when we changed our clocks?? There’s a glitch somewhere. So even though they say it will play Thursday morning between 6:30 and 7, I wouldn’t count on that. Just keep listening.
