Monday March 28th

Posted on Mar 27, 2016

The personal bit:

Easter – egg hunt, scavenger hunt, candy.

We have a new hobby, you can read about it HERE. We did a lot of that this weekend.

Puppies – 6 weeks old, playing, chewing, fighting, pooping.

Stuff that happened:

ICYMI, I’m not keeping track of Rock 101 bribes anymore. They’re irrelevant.

The ratings for the winter came out at the beginning of March but I’m just getting to them now. You can see how your favourite station fared HERE.

I’ll leave the post up about the previous big winner HERE. It’s a cool story. Hopefully you’ll have a similar story some day.

I also wrote a post about Rogers and the Canucks Promo. Spoiler: they really pissed me off! You can read about that HERE.

New this week:

CFOX starts their Payroll contest again this week. If you haven’t entered yet, go log in and sign up. But only sign up once. Only one winner PER HOUSEHOLD, and you can’t have won anything from the Fox in the past 30 days. Listen for your name at 8, 11, 2, and 5. If you hear it, you have 9 minutes to call them back. If you call back in time, you have earned $250 and you’re on the payroll until someone else is called. If that person doesn’t call back, you get their paycheque too, and now you’ve earned $500 total. This continues until someone calls back in time. As usual, I will try to find the person but 9 minutes isn’t a lot of time so try to listen if you can. If you are on my list, it only takes 10 seconds for me to check that. If you or I are on the payroll, I’m still going to be trying to find the next person because that’s how I roll.

Bro Jake will have ZZ Top tickets on TSN 1040.

Virgin has Ellie Goulding tickets.


The Peak will announce the winner of the Dominican Republic trip today.

JRFM also has one of these trips, so watch for the newsletter in your inbox today and enter through the link. I’m not sure if they’re still doing Artist of the Day – they never post Rules & Regs for their contests so start and end dates are always a mystery.

I think Jeff O’Neil will be back. If so, they will announce the final winner of Vacay or Pay, and then Payroll starts. This contest will run through April and May, ending beginning of June. If you can’t listen at some of those times, send me your info and I’ll contact you if your name is said.

Same goes for Beat Your Bills – not everyone can listen at all four times (7:10, 8:10, 11:10, and 3:10), so I can be your backup.

Keep your ears open for two back-to-back Bieber songs on Kiss. This contest has 6 weeks left, and there are 3 more prizes to be awarded. It’ll happen sometime this week probably. One thing to note is that the winner MUST be within listening range of the station – if you can’t pick up the station on your regular radio, you can’t play. If you’ve heard two Bieber songs back to back, text the word “cash” to 10456. No need to include your name, they will call you if you are the 104th texter. Last time they had over 200,000 texts – not sure if that means 50,000 people texted them 4 times or if that’s 200,000 separate people.

It’s McCartney Monday on LG. Listen at 8 for the song of the day. If you miss it, you can log into your account and see what it is.
