Monday Aug 24th
It’s Monday, but for some of you it’s The FREAKIN’ WEEKND! WOOT! Most stations will have tickets to The Weeknd to give away, and it starts today with QMFM, Virgin, and Kiss. I expect Jack and Zed will have some too, and possibly even TSN.
Today the Rock 101 ACDC contest gets the juice! Play for ACDC concert tickets at 8, 11, 2, and 5. If you win, you will be in the draw for the grand prize – a trip to Australia to see ACDC’s concert. Very cool. If you can’t travel between December 4th and 10th to Australia but would still like to see ACDC in Vancouver, go ahead and enter – the odds of you winning the grand prize are slim anyway.
TSN is giving away 7 prizes of Who tickets, but not just 2 tickets – each prize has FOUR tickets! Whaaaaat?! You can enter at the TSN tent at the PNE, or you can enter online. Good luck!
JRFM is having another deck party! You should try to get in on this – I was at the last one and it was a HOOT! Games, prizes, entertainment, and the thrill of watching your favourite radio hosts at work. If you play your cards right they might even let you say the secret word! Every single time I hear the secret word, I imagine how I would work it into a conversation. It never happens the way I think it will… They will also have Little Big Town tickets after 7.
Stop in and check for updates later in the morning when the websites are updated.
On a personal note, I am not interested in any of the current contests and I don’t want to waste a win on something so-so when I know there’s something amazing coming up in a few weeks. You may think that nobody notices your winnings but let me assure you – all of the promotions people and the DJs are well aware of the people who win ALL the time. They know you by name and they compare notes, just like we compare notes about DJs and contests. Only win what you truly want, don’t win just for the sake of winning.
Keep Trying and Happy Dialling!
