Friday Aug 26th

Posted on Aug 26, 2016

Stuff that happened:

Oh MAN!! There were TWO concert announcements yesterday, and one of them totally made my day!

  1. Virgin announced the return of $15,000 Thursdays. *snore*…
  2. Jack announced the $96,000 Mixed Tape contest! Squeeeee!!! More about that later (it doesn’t start until Sept 6th.)

Vacay or Pay: 10 people are in the draw so far. There was a surprise 2nd $1000 prize though – WTF?! So now there are only 35 prizes of $1000 left, and 53 game days left. So at the very least, 18 days will have NO prize of $1000. Ugh! My guess is that today will be one of those days…

Speaking of CFOX, where the hell is the Jeff O’Neil Show? They weren’t at their posts yesterday, and there haven’t been any social media posts. Meredith was in for them on Thursday, and there was a commercial bit that said they would return on Monday. WILL THEY??? I guess we’ll find out on Monday. This unexpected silence is unnerving… plus the fact that they didn’t plug the RAMdom Acts Of Kindness in this week’s newsletter is suspicious. The winds of change may be blowin’… now would be a good time, before September hits and people get back to their routines…

***UPDATE*** Change happened! But not where I expected it. Craig Stone has left CFOX, Thursday night was his last 7-12 show. He didn’t say where he was going, but he did say that it was a good thing, and nothing bad happened. I take that to mean that he didn’t get fired, that he left on his own. There must’ve been a good reason to leave – like maybe he got offered a morning show at The Peak?? He would be a perfect fit for it! We’ll just have to wait and see… So far, Craig’s social media profiles still say CFOX, but his FB post last night said he was going to “sign off of CFOX for the very last time”, so it’s not like he was just moving time slots…

Rock 101’s payroll: 2 out of 4 people called back. Willy is off for the week, but I am certain that he’ll be back Monday – he’s not going anywhere until they roll him out of there in his wheelchair to change his diapers!! At least, we hope so…

I wrote a personal post about togetherness, you can read that HERE if you’re looking forward to September too. 😉


Listen for the JRFM Gloria-ous words carefully – I missed one yesterday even though I was listening on my portable! I don’t know how that happens. I guess the 3 beers probably had something to do with it… heh…
