Wednesday July 27th
Stuff that happened:
WOAHWOAHWOAH!! What’s THIS?! A new contest from Z95.3??? OMG, I’m so excited!!! It’s going to be hard, but it’ll be for my favourite: CASH!! Name the song before the lyrics kick in – I could do that! Maybe! Not sure. Probably not… But you can go HERE to practice the game. It’ll play at the usual 8, 11, 2 and 5. I’m unable to open the official “Contest Rules” PDF under the practice video, but I’m assuming it starts on Tuesday the 2nd. I hope it’s still playing when I get home on the 23rd – I want to listen! Someone check the contest dates in the PDF for me! (I’m assuming it’s just this Finnish laptop that won’t allow it to open…)
The thing that happened on Monday morning is still bugging me so I’m leaving my vent about that in the schedule. You can read my vent about that HERE.
Many of you have noticed that Corus’s phone lines are now the same as Bell’s – that automated message will drive you CRAZY! But let’s give it some time. I’m not sure it’s going to make it any more difficult to get through, it’s just more annoying because we’re hearing the message. I noticed yesterday that many of the winners were calling in on cell phones, and even from the Island. By mid-September I’ll be able to tell you if it’s harder or easier to get through to Corus. I tried SO hard to get through for the Cash or Carzzzzzz but I had no luck. Granted, I was only calling during Willy’s show and that’s probably the busiest time to call. I almost always got through at some point, but rarely before he already had his winner. I know they’ll have an awesome contest coming up in September so we’ll see if I have any luck then…
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 later today and there’ll be some new things to enter.
New This Week:
I’m just going to leave these in from earlier this week, in case you missed it:
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.
Listen for the ShoreFest song of the day on LG104.3 and win your way into the VIP section.
