Tuesday April 19th

Posted on Apr 19, 2016

The personal bit:

It was wonderful to have the kids home! We went for a nice lunch, had a nap, cuddled. I’m sure it won’t be long until they drive me squirrelly again, but for now I’m in my own slice of heaven. Heh.

Stuff that happened:

Zed announced that over the next 3 weeks you will hear Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” song four times. When you hear it completely, start dialling. Caller 95 gets to choose which concert they’d like to attend – Chicago, New York, San Fran, or Boston. The trip includes flights, accommodations, concert tickets, and $500 spending money. If timing is an issue for you, you can choose which ever date works for you: Monday May 16th, Friday May 27th, Friday June 3rd or Wednesday June 8th. If location is more important, then I hope you win first so you get to choose. As the trips get won, your options dwindle.

Gwen Stefani announced her concert and everyone had tickets! I’d love to see her but given the choice I’d rather see Adele. I suspect Pink will be announcing a tour in the next year too, so she’s priority number one, though my daughter would prefer Adele. Huh! Alice Cooper also announced tour dates, and there are more McCartney tickets to be had on Rock 101. The Blues & Roots Fest was announced too – it’s Festival Season! I’ll keep an eye out for tickets and add them to the schedule as I catch them.

Bro Jake over at TSN has Coachella passes today and tomorrow, and something about $1040 to go with it? Not sure, listen to find out more. Plus listen for the code word of the day and text it to 104040 for a chance at a fishing derby trip to Rodgers Fishing Lodge in Tahsis. I’d tell you more about Rodgers Fishing Lodge but it looks like their website has been suspended (TSN may want to remove that link from the contest page)…

I got through for Beat the Bank but was caller 3 or 8 or something. Bummer. Also got through for Carz, but was caller 7. Boo! I’m having little luck this month, but Imma keep at it – I have miles to go before I sleep, bills to pay before I weep… or something like that…

I sent Willy a letter on Saturday. He read it on air. It made me smile. 🙂


Jack plays Name Those Tunes this week and the contest ends on Friday afternoon.

JRFM asks you questions at 7, 11, 2, 5, and 7. Not sure how much longer this will go on but usually their contests only last 2 weeks.
