Monday July 18th

Posted on Jul 17, 2016

Stuff that happened:

The CFOX and Rock 101 promo peeps got together and decided it would be fun to play their contests at the same time. I wonder if they tortured kittens while they plotted against us at this meeting?! I wasn’t in town so I missed it, but I do have an opinion on it. You can find that HERE in my third vlog, which is about 5 seconds long. Who won the $5000? If you called in for Revolution, did you get through? If so, which caller were you? Asking for a friend… 😉

I wrote a post about our experience in Iceland. You can read about that HERE if you’re interested.

New This Week:

The Peak has Tragically Hip tickets all week! Listen for “Courage” by the Hip, then text “Hip Your Name” to 88000. They will call the winner at the end of the song.

JRFM’s “Win” tab is not working. I keep getting “404 not found”. I’ll check periodically and update when it is working. Even so, I was able to see the details for three of the current contests. First up: invites to the Patio Party on July 22nd with Chad Brownlee entertaining – win tickets with the morning show, midday show, and afternoon show.

Barbara Beam will also have tickets to the Keith Urban concert for those who nominated an efficient employee. If you haven’t entered, do so HERE. Then listen 9-2 for Barbara to say the name of the potential winner. That person has 9 minutes and 37 seconds to call back. If they do, they and their employee each win tickets to the show. It doesn’t say what will happen if they don’t call back in time…

Jaxon Hawks is the lucky guy who gets to have a party at the PNE prize home this year. Washboard Union will be there to entertain the guests, and there will be food and drinks and prizes. What fun!! I wonder when the party will be?!

Another thing that JRFM is doing is having a RAM truck tailgate party this Friday. Enter your workplace HERE and they will let you know on Wednesday if you’ve been the chosen one, who gets to eat free food and party on their lunch hour.

You Can’t Win This So Don’t Bother returns this week at 7:30.

QMFM has a bunch of online contests and the Summer Cinema Series prize once per week.

Answer some trivia questions over at Z95.3 HERE and you could win some summer fun for you and your clan. They also have a sweet getaway to Whistler, you just need to submit a “selfie in the dark” HERE. It’s a family site so keep it clean, folks! This is a nice prize, including $500 spending money, so go enter!! Of the 62 entries there, only 21 are new. If you entered last time (January), you’re still in it so don’t reenter!

Kiss’s morning show will be giving away a VIP Playland adventure. Listen in the morning to win a pair of Playland passes, which enters you into the grand prize draw on August 1st. The VIP prize includes Playland passes for 4, passes for the pay-per-rides, food, drinks, AND a $200 Visa card! Nice!! This is the first time in FOREVER that Kiss has had something I’m even remotely interested in – maybe the tides are turning? We can hope.


This is the last week of the Cuban Revolution contest on Rock 101. I believe it will play once this week, probably early in the week. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow. Then I believe it will play one more time next Monday, as the contest officially ends next Monday at 6pm. If they aren’t going to play it on Monday, why not just end the contest on Friday? So that’s my prediction: it’ll play early this week and also again next Monday. I wonder what they’ll be doing next?!

CFOX will give it away until August 21st. I doubt it will play this week. I keep forgetting to mention the RAMdom Acts of Kindness non-contest, where you nominate someone and once per month they choose someone to help. I don’t know what kinds of acts they’re willing to perform, but I could sure use help cleaning out the garage and hauling stuff to the dump! The fence could use a coat of paint, the trees could use a trim, and the floors could use some wax. But aside from manual labour, what other kinds of acts of kindness could there be? Could they take my kids to Playland? Or babysit them while I take the RAM to the spa? They could pick up your house-bound neighbour and take them out to the ball game while you do something nice for them like clean their house or throw a surprise party. So many options! Go nominate someone HERE. I hope they read some of the nominations on air!!

Kiah and Tara Jean are looking to trade in their tickets for the July 24th Tragically Hip concert. These are in the Jack FM private suite, which would be a pretty skookum way to watch the concert! So offer them a trade (call, email, tweet, FB message, Instagram, whatever) and make it interesting. The weirder it is, the better chance you have of winning. Remember that time they made their “Kevin Spacey’s breath in a jar” Craig’s List offer go viral? Yeah, so I think you can make up pretty much anything and they’ll believe you…
