Thursday March 24th
The personal bit:
Have I ever told you about calling people out of the blue? Like for Beat Your Bills or Win at Work? When I first started doing it about 2 years ago, I used to be apprehensive about it. Like, will they be mad that I wake them up? Or did I catch them in a meeting? Or were they busy and now they’re mad? But over the years I’ve gotten used to it, and now I just don’t even care how they will react. I mean, how would YOU react if someone woke you up and you won $100? Or $250? Or $500?? Would you be pissed? Most of the time, people are overjoyed. They get super excited, which gets ME all excited FOR them! LOL! Occasionally people have thought it was a prank call, and even hung up on me. I just shrug and carry on with my day – it doesn’t affect me ONE iota. I love doing it, and I’ve met some of the most wonderful people that way. It’s amazing how just one 20 second conversation can brighten your day. I’m paying it forward but I’m also benefitting – it’s not as altruistic as it seems! 😉
Stuff that happened:
Stupid YCWT game. That is all.
I’m going to stop keeping track of the Rock 101 bribes/prizes. I miss it half the time, and I think we all know that there will be about 200 people in the draw when all is said and done. The bribes are meh, except for the few exceptions which are always with Willy in the morning. No point keeping track anymore.
ZFX was not solved. Again. Matty B did say that he had “some close guesses”, so I don’t know what that means. The guesses he’s had during his show are “pushing in a chair”, “closing a fridge door”, “box hitting conveyor belt”, “basketball hitting backboard”, “filing cabinet closing”, “baseball pitching machine”, and “air releasing from a paint gun”. Is your guess “close” to one of those??? I’m going to stick with “ball bouncing” for mine… for now at least.
I wrote the blog post about a previous big winner. Did you read it?? You can do so HERE. Just writing it made me smile! What a great story!! I love the video. Remember when Kiah had that long hair?!
I’m dying for the Jeff O’Neil show to come back. Anyone else? Anyway, there were TWO envelopes with $1000 yesterday. Huh.
The news about Phil and Aaron is still resonating in my brain. I know it’s old news to them – I’m sure they’ve adjusted over these past 3 weeks – but it’s new to me so I’m still getting used to it.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that Kid Carson finally broke his silence! On March 10th he posted on his Public Figure Facebook page “You’re supposed to vote for people WITH JOBS” because he was voted Best Local Radio Personality in the West Ender newspaper. That is the only social media communication that he has made since leaving Kiss (that I’m aware of!) He’ll pop up somewhere again. I wonder where he’ll land…
It appears that all the Kiss drama has caused an even further decline in their ratings, according to Numeris. For the first time in a year, they are at the bottom. Maybe it’s just that time of the year? And LG104.3 has overtaken both Kiss and Peak! What the… !!!
The times that Peak will play the jet sound are:
Keep your ears open for two back-to-back Bieber songs on Kiss. It *could* happen today, as it’s the last day before the long weekend.
Fret not about the weekend though – I think Peak is still going to take qualifiers for the Dominican trip, and JRFM will do their Artist of the Day. Plus Virgin will have tickets to Demi & Nick all weekend long, at 10 after each hour from 12 to 10pm for all 3 days. Nice!!
