Thursday July 2nd

Posted on Jul 2, 2015

I hope you were able to stay cool during your Canada Day celebrations. It was our first time taking in the Canada Place celebration, and I must admit I was NOT looking forward to being there. It ended up being a good time – my favourite part was when my son fell asleep so I got to sit and people watch while I held him. I marveled at all the different types of people that I saw, and I thought “good for you! Good on ya for coming down here and making an effort! There are people that won’t leave the house because they’re having a bad hair day or have a pimple on their nose. But you, and you and you and you, and you with the prosthetic leg, and you with NO leg, and you with the warts or nodules all over your face and neck, and you misfits and you lonely single dude and you old crouched over woman – thank YOU for making the effort and for showing me that we are a social being, we crave community and togetherness and yes, a good party.” So I took it all in and was able to stomp down the misanthropy rising up my throat, the sudden need to flee to my own space and decompress. We lasted 6 hours (SIX!!!) and no one melted (or melted down!) WOOT!!

And now back to our regular scheduled programming! 

JRFM has Sunfest passes again. Barbara Beam has PNE passes so you can see Clint Black – everyone that wins is in for the grand prize on Friday, which includes meet and greets, fair ride passes, and a $100 Visa. Docc will have the Secret Word sometime around 5:40.

Rock 101 has Bon Jovi in the Park tickets during the morning show. And let’s not forget to qualify for that amazing trip to Disneyland – qualify at 8, 11, 2, and 5.

Kiss has 1D tickets and Playland passes too with the KCS. You can also win Playland passes and qualify for the VIP Playland experience happening July 15th.

Jack has Bon Jovi tickets with the morning show.

Virgin has $250 e-Transfers 4 times per day, at 7:10, 11:10, 1:10, and 3:10. They also have $75 to Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria between 9 and 2, and 1D tickets TWICE each night during Denai’s show, 6-10pm!

Bro Jake has Journey tickets during his show, and Larry and Corrie have them at 8am.

Everytime you hear a Mumford & Sons song on The Peak, text the word “WIN” to 88000 to win weekend passes to Squamish Fest. ***PLEASE NOTE*** “win” must be the FIRST word of your text, followed by your full name, and it must be done before the song ends!!! It’ll happen 4 times per day! If you can’t text, they have a spare pair for Peak VIPs so go log in and enter. 

Z95.3 are giving away a cruise, in fact, TWO cruises. Enter on their site, just log in and find the bear. The cruise date is set for August 16th to 23rd, so don’t enter if you can’t go those dates. They will give those away on July 3rd (Friday). 

And a quick reminder for those of you who listen to Vancouver Island stations, my friend Contests Vancouver Island has all the details of the contests over there. Check it out at, and join them on their Facebook page for more good stuff!
