Posted on Nov 23, 2015

Bring on the Jingle Bells!! Christmas is just around the corner, like it or not. I’m gearing up (down?) for a low-key Christmas this year, but there are still 5 weeks left so I may change my mind. It may be my last opportunity to mess with my kids, so perhaps some Santa mischief will happen… heh, heh… if you have any fun ideas, I’d love to hear them!

Zed starts us off with the Santa Song of the Day – if you hear it, be caller 9 and you win a $500 gift card to Metropolis Metrotown! SQUEEEEEE!!! It’s funny how this makes me SO excited – it’s only $500, but this contest just brings me such joy. LOL! Rock 101 is doing the same thing, but it doesn’t make me nearly as excited… maybe it’s because Zed plays a Christmas song…

Last year when this Z95.3 contest started, they played the song TWICE and gave away TWO gift cards on the first day! So listen up, and start calling as soon as you hear it. Last year there was some confusion – one host opened the lines right away, another waited until the song ended. But just start dialling as soon as you hear it to be safe, unless you hear otherwise. Also, they told us what time it would play last year, so fingers crossed they do it again!

Also on Zed, you can ask them to help you make someone’s Christmas Wish come true. Maybe there’s a grandmother who misses her grandkids and needs an iPad so they can Skype. Or even better, a plane ticket home for the holidays! OMG, how fantastic that would be – a flight home to Prince George or Edmonton or where ever their family is! If there is some way to help someone out, let them know who/where/how by filling in the form HERE. I love hearing these on the radio, and I know Cruby love doing them – let’s see if we can make Cruise cry! ­čśÇ

Rock 101 is also giving away $500 with a Christmas song, but it’s not actually a Christmas song. Listen for the song of the day, and call in when you hear it. Start calling when the song ENDS, and caller 10 wins a $500 pre-paid credit card. SWEET!

JRFM is getting into the Christmas spirit so much that they’re singing about it – IN GERMAN! When you hear a song being sung in German, call in and identify the song. If you do, you will win 4 passes to the Vancouver Christmas Market (including food and beverage vouchers) and be entered into the draw for a trip to Germany! Wowzers! Have you been to the Vancouver Christmas Market? It’s lovely – and an $8 ticket gets you a season’s pass. The songs will happen 4 times per day including weekends, and will be sung by Canadian cuties High Valley. The winner of the trip will be announced on Monday the 30th.

There are NICE Xmas contests, and there are EVIL Xmas contests. CFOX has opted to go with the meanest, cruelest, most awesomest game! I don’t recall ever having heard this game before – some evil genius over at Corus is getting creative. Caller 9 at 8am on Monday will get a prize. When they play again at 11, that caller can STEAL the 8am prize, or choose to take the mystery prize. I must admit that a deep, evil, growly muaahahahaaa arose from my throat when I read about it. But they aren’t THAT mean, because the 8am caller actually gets the mystery prize, and that might be pretty good! The prizes range from $100 value to $500 value, anything from DVDs to festival passes. The 2pm caller can only steal the 11am prize, not the 8am prize, unlike the rules of the well-known White Elephant Gift Exchange. If you win a nice prize, don’t get too attached… at least not for a few hours! I’m going to call this one CFOX’s White Elephant Gift Exchange (WEGE). One winner per household, and only play if you haven’t won from CFOX in the past 30 days.

TSN’s text-in contest continues this week: win 2 tickets to watch the Canucks in the Big White Ski Resort suite at Roger’s, plus 2 passes to ski Big White. Listen for the daily code word during the Bro Jake Show, and text it to 104040. If you don’t text, that’s okay – you can also enter via e-mail. Just send an e-mail with your name, address, age, phone number(s), and the code word to┬á Only ONE entry per day per person, so either text OR email, but don’t do both. The winner is drawn on Nov 30th.

It’s the last week of Jack’s Win at Work contest. Whew! They made lots of friends this time around. I wonder what they’re up to now???

Virgin gives away their last trip to Mexico this morning with a draw from online entries. What’s next? I haven’t heard, have you?

QMFM is giving away those Dominican Republic trips again this week, but this is the last week. You can also log in and invite the breakfast crew to your Christmas party, but it HAS to be taking place on Saturday, December 5th. I suppose it can be any party, it doesn’t say it has to be an employee party. By the way, we should have a party!! We’ll talk…

Remember when Nat and Drew used to do the Christmas Break and Enter? That was so special… *sigh*… the good old days…

I’ve left the Smarty Pantz reminders in the schedule, but I’m not sure if it’s continuing this week. Friday ended with Ian giving us 7 out of 10 questions, so they still have that $500 to give away…

Same for the Kiss Jamaica contest – the rules don’t have dates listed, so no idea when it ends (or even how many trips they have!)

Lots of question marks as usual. Check back later in the day for updates!
