Tuesday July 26th
Stuff that happened:
Revolution played. Give It Away played. The two things combined didn’t bother me as much as the discovery that one was not run according to the rules! You can read my vent about that HERE.
According to the Playlist on the Rock 101 site, they did not play Revolution again before 6pm when the contest ended. Speaking of the Playlist, I’m quite liking the new Corus website(s)! They are the same format as the other ones now, which makes it much easier to navigate them. And they aren’t on a black background anymore, which I used to find quite distracting. Well done, Corus! You know, aside from that other stuff… like the new studios, which brought with them new phone systems. UGH! Now we get the same message as with Bell stations: “we’re sorry, all circuits are busy. Please try again later.” #%&!!
I wrote a post HERE of the contests you can enter online this week. I’m going to update this later today, so come check it out in the morning and there’ll be some new things to enter.
New This Week:
Rock 101 is now taking qualifiers for that amazing concert in the desert – the Greatest Concert Ever. Listen at 8, 11, 2, and 5 to qualify for the first draw on August 8th. There will be 36 people in that draw. If you don’t win the first draw, you can try to qualify for the second one on August 22nd. There will be 40 people in that draw. If you qualify for the first draw but don’t win, you must re-qualify for the second one. If you win the first one, you can’t qualify for the second one, and neither can anyone who lives with you. I don’t make the rules, I just explain them. 😀
QMFM is filling the seats for Duran Duran! You can win the 4 times per day and join me in the stands. Let’s wear some 80’s outfits and see if we stand out! I’ll load up on bangles and you wear parachute pants, mmmkay? 😉
Kiss is sending someone to Toronto to see Fifth Harmony. When you hear a Fifth Harmony song between 7am and 7pm, be the 5th texter to 10456 and you will get on the Standby list. The concert is on August 11th so only enter if you can travel Aug 10-12. It’s a nice prize actually, with airfare, hotel, and a $100 Visa gift card. Oh, and of course meet & greets and tickets to the concert. The contest ends July 31st and the draw is on August 2nd.
TRAGICALLY HIP TICKETS!!! Every HOUR from 6am to 4pm. Get them by listening for a Hip song on Rock 101, and be the 10th caller. Call as soon as the Hip song starts – Willy took calls as soon as it started for the 6 and 7am times, but then waited till the song ended for the 8 and 9am times. So just keep hitting redial until you hear a winner on air – that’s the only way to be certain you didn’t miss it! It’s going to be an amazing, emotional show – don’t miss it! You can DO this!!! 604-280-1011. Good luck!
