Friday april 15th

Posted on Apr 15, 2016

The personal bit:

In case you missed it, you can read HERE about why I’m currently enjoying 4 days of freedom.

I’m live-blogging my adventure HERE.

Also on a personal note, I’d like to thank you all for reading, contributing, and engaging. You make this fun! I know some of the stations hate this blog, and that’s okay. I’m sure the local hangouts hate it when the Georgia Straight advertises their specials right beside every one else’s specials – the competition is probably killing them! But the readers love reading about ALL of the specials, then they spend their time (and money) according to their tastes. That’s really all I’m doing here – just showing you all what’s out there so you can make an informed decision. If you are only interested in one station’s contests, that’s what you’ll look for on this blog. I’m not discriminating – I post them ALL (or try to!) I doubt my opinions on anything sway anybody one way or another…

Things that happened:

Kiss played their $10,000 song. And now it gets interesting: the rules (which I downloaded and therefore have a copy of) say that the contest runs until May 9th. The contest and everything related to it is no longer on the Kiss website! Sooo… it’s over?? There’s absolutely no trace of it left, other than the tweets and Facebook posts from the last play. Huh. The rules also say there are four (4) prizes of $10,000 to be won. There have only been 3 winners. I wonder where the other $10,000 went??

The radio gods were kinder to me on Thursday, and no one called names at the EXACT same time. Whew! It’s so stressful! Not like brain-surgery stressful, but still…

The Rocket Science game is fun, isn’t it?! I wish they’d stop playing Shania Twain when somebody bombs though – couldn’t they play something more encouraging and uplifting? Isn’t there a country song with the lyrics “thanks for trying!” or “try again” or “maybe next time”??

I’m not so vain as to think that this stupid little blog had anything to do with CFOX removing their on-air prizes post, but I sure do miss it. It didn’t give exact times for any of the prizes, it just said whose show it would happen during – that was super handy! And gave us a reason to listen in on those shows, really. I guess their insecurities got the better of them… *shrug*
