Friday Oct 9th

ZFX jackpot is at $3000 this morning. Nooooo ideas…

If you played Peak’s Smarty Pantz game, there’s a post for you HERE.

In yesterday’s post I said CFOX’s jackpot is up to $6000. It wasn’t. But today it starts out at $5500. A nice chunk of change. I was listening yesterday morning when someone played and the JOS was being… er… unkind? They were smirking about how the person probably didn’t even know the names of the JOS hosts, and how they probably call other stations for other contests. Apparently they don’t appreciate those kinds of people. Well JOS, if it weren’t for people like us tuning in for your contests, we wouldn’t hear your charming banter and decide to tune in at other times. However, when you swing the pendulum the other way and make us feel shitty for engaging in your contest, we are likely to never tune in again. Not that you care, obviously.

But then we are back to the old debate about why you even HAVE contests – is it to entice new listeners? Or is it to reward OLD listeners? And if it’s the latter, why not just send your loyal listeners a personal cheque as a thank-you, because you clearly know who they are and the list never changes. It’s not like new people move to Vancouver and discover your station by accident, or people shop around when their music tastes change. Nooooo, that NEVER happens… So hey, if you’re not an absolutely true listener of CFOX, please do NOT bother playing this contest, or for that matter, tuning in at all. No thank you. They do not want you. Which is too bad because sometimes I do tune in, but I may think twice about it from now on…

I wrote a post for the various visits you can get from the stations – they bring coffee, lunch, treats, whatever – you can read that HERE. Most of them don’t mind if you listen to other stations – just like your friends don’t mind if you have coffee with your OTHER friends because they’re not psycho cling-ons who insist that they be your only friend…

And because it’s Friday, come by later and comment on the Lotto Max post. Then go LIKE the Lotto Max posts on the Facebook page. But for shit sakes, do NOT go LIKE or comment on OTHER posts, because I hate when my followers read other blogs… *sarcasm*
