Monday June 13th
After an amazing weekend (tell you later!!), we begin this week with shite weather and not much better contests.
Things that happened:
CFOX played Give It Away last Thursday, but it didn’t go quite as planned. As I understand it, there was an outcry after it was revealed that the girl who won the $5000 had texted 13 times. We all were under the impression that you could only enter ONCE, so there were some pretty pissed off folks! Lawyers were consulted, decisions were made. They announced a DIFFERENT winner on Friday morning. I don’t know if Tara got her money and they just coughed up another $5000 for their mistake, or if they took Tara’s 5G and gave it to someone else. Nonetheless, they changed the rules: we now CALL in and the 99th caller wins. WOOT!!! I hope that’s the end of their attempt at text-in contests…
As an aside, I hope poor Jeff O’Neil and his crew don’t get their wrists slapped for this. It seems that half the time the hosts don’t really know all the rules for their contests. And do they actually count the texts/emails themselves?? I doubt it. It’s up to the promo team to make ABSOLUTELY certain everyone is apprised of ALL the rules. There shouldn’t be any gray areas – rules & regs are posted for that reason. Which, by the way, are not available – the link is not working, so I can’t see if they’ve updated them. Sorry!
JRFM is continuing with the You Can’t Win This debacle. Humph. Hopefully it’ll be a *little* easier this time around. If not, I hope you win the jackpot for your Xmas spending money – it’ll be December before anyone solves it all!! 😉
Listen for Revolution on Rock 101.
Listen for the Peak’s Free Ride artist (I *think* this is still happening!)
Listen for back-to-back Don Henley on LG 104.3.
There are lots of great online-entry contests so I’m hoping to get a post together today. But first I have to go give a career talk to my youngest’s kindergarden class. What should I tell them about being a stay-at-home-Mom and having no income and living frugally? Haha! Just kidding. I’ll tell them about forestry and tell them to go work in the bush while they’re young – when you’re over 30, the knees start to give. And after numerous bear encounters you start to question your sanity when there are so many *safe* jobs to be had…
