Monday April 4th
The personal bit:
Sunshine and puppies. That is all.
Stuff that happened:
I’m fed up with Kiss so I wrote them a Dear John letter. Kind of a nasty one. Their latest contest pissed me off and I just lost it. If you haven’t read that post already, you can read it HERE. I’ve even sent the Competition Bureau a formal complaint – my first one ever! I hope they have to pay for their sins. Ara is the only one I’d save from that station, the rest can sink with the ship. I’m done. But that’s only MY opinion, tailored by MY tastes; you do what you want. No judgement here!
Speaking of Rogers, I wasn’t in any shape to write about the News 1130 contest last week, but let’s look at it now: Mon – Thurs of each week they will play a clip of the Newsmaker of the Week. Once you have figured out who it is, go enter your answer on the News 1130 site HERE. You could win $500!
Here are the things you need to note about this contest:
- You can only enter ONCE per week.
- If your email address is shared, only one of you can enter.
- You must be within listening range to enter
- You can’t have won ANYTHING from the station within the past 30 days
- You can’t have won a prize worth $1000 or more from the station with the past 6 months
- all correct answers will be entered into a draw and a winner will be drawn at random from all eligible entries on Friday morning.
- the contest is run weekly, ending May 21st.
This new ZFX is carrying on longer than I expected! I thought it was easy but it’s NOT!!! I have only one guess right now (it’s on the ZFX post) but I will come up with some more once I’ve gotten the kids off to school and have some room to breathe.
Name Those Tunes on Jack FM if you can! I am always gobsmacked at the number of songs I don’t know the title of – I know all the words, I just have no idea what it’s called! It’s fun to test myself, though I’ll never get to play.
Virgin has been beating bills left and right! People are SO excited when they call in. It’s cute. Have you got your name in for that? Go do it HERE.
The CFOX hosts aren’t great at pronouncing names (I wish they’d just spell them out, like the Virgin peeps do!) but I’m doing my best to catch them. If you want me to listen for YOUR name, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re already on my list, please know that I will definitely call or text you if I hear your name! I have only missed a few names in these past few years, but it’s always nice to have backup so listen if you can.
JRFM looks like it’s still doing Artist of the Day. Nice! The YCWT game is still limping along but I’ve removed it from the schedule because it’s not even worthy of note. Sorry Clay. *LOVE YOU*
I have a really hard time catching the QMFM Beat Your Bank plays at 8 and 11am. If you hear them, can you please let me know how high the jackpot went and which vault had the alarm? A thousand thank-yous to the person who catches most of them for me – you’re a Rock Star!!! <3
Rock 101‘s Willy played an awesome April Fools joke on us last Friday. He had a friend call in and pretend to play Cash or Carz. He offered upwards of $20,000 to the guy, but he was adamant: carz. He even had Kimmie and Alece fooled, which made it all the more funny. The little stinker! We have to come up with a good one for Willy for next April Fools.
Never mind. I just checked. April Fools Day is on a Saturday next year. Boo! Lucky Willy. And lucky Matty B – he was in my sights for “getting” next year too! LOL!
