Friday Sept 2nd
Stuff that happened:
QMFM and Corus continue to have phone connection issues. On Wednesday, it took about 15 minutes for them to air the 11am game because of phone issues. Corus lines are fuzzy on both ends – to the caller and to the host – and it’s almost painful to listen to them talking to people. If the person is on a cell phone, it’s horrible! Poor Willy makes a joke and the person doesn’t laugh because they didn’t hear it. It’s possible that the person isn’t even on a cell phone, it just sounds so bad that I think it’s a cell!
QM’s jackpots were poor, with 7am having the highest one at $3000. The rest were under $800.
CFOX had 2 envelopes with $1000 in it, but only one person walked away with a grand. They’re getting tricky! Today is the last day to get into the draw. There are 7 people in the draw so far, which is on Tuesday because of the holiday Monday.
ZFX. Driving us crazy since 2005. Or whatever. That egg beater guess was SUPERB!!! I was certain she was going to be right!! But nope. Not an egg beater. *sigh*…
Kimberly’s finances got bumped up by $15,000 on Thursday morning! I didn’t have any luck getting through, but I forgot about it until about 8:20. Still worth trying for, of course!
I also tried to get through for Roundhouse Radio’s contest – a trip to the Greatest Concert in the desert! Listen at 7:15am to find out who their Artist of the Day is, and every time they play that artist, call 604-449-8983. It’s odd to call a station and have it go to voicemail! LOL! Eventually I did get through, and they answered and put me on hold. Then they came back and asked if I was 19 and had a valid passport. I am and I do. They put me on hold again, during which time I can hear the radio playing (like the phone is a radio). Then the song ends and they say “Hi!” and I say “Hi!” But then a different voice says “Hello?” I’m confused for a second, while their conversation starts to gain momentum. So they didn’t pick up MY line, they are speaking to a different caller, yet I can hear everything as if I’m standing in the room with them. So strange… They finished their conversation and hung up, but then I could still hear the show through the phone. I decided to stay on, just to see how long it would take for them to cut me off. At the 6 minute mark, someone came on the line and said “sorry, we didn’t choose your line. You can try again tomorrow.” So remember: just because they answered, doesn’t mean you won.
HERE is a reminder of previous ZFX’s – if your guess is on this list, do NOT try to get through – they will not use a previous sound! At least, I doubt they will…
