Friday Sept 9th

Posted on Sep 9, 2016

The Personal Bit:

My 50th birthday is next Wednesday. I’m having a party on the 17th (Saturday), and you’re invited! It’s a pop-up restaurant serving Finnish Food. It’s open from 1pm to midnight on Saturday, September 17th in New West. The lunch smorgasbord is from 1-3, and the dinner is from 5-8. After 8 I will be drunk and dancing on the tables. If you want to stop by, you are welcome! I would love to share some Finnish food and a drink with you! The details and tickets are HERE. Only the smorgasbord costs money – if you just want to come for coffee and cake, shoot me an email. I’d love to meet you! And if you *insist* on bringing a present, I drink Corona… 😉

Stuff that happened:

Corus phones were down for the count on Thursday morning, which meant they couldn’t play their 8am or 11am games. Surprisingly CKNW’s phones were working fine, so clearly the problem didn’t affect the entire floor… Lucky Frank cashed in on two extra plays, earning a clean $500 with no chance of being kicked off the payroll – niiiiiice!

And that meant that there were only 2 plays of Vacay or Pay, which means that there are for sure 2 less people in the draw on Monday. There are still only 2 people in the draw. TWO!!!! I cannot express this enough: TAKE THE VACAY!!! I mean, if you’re able to travel those dates (Jan 11-18th); if not, then definitely choose the cash. The less people in the draw, the better the odds. And even if everyone chooses the vacay today, that’s still 1 in 6 odds!! That’s CRAZY!!!!!

I missed the 2pm Jack name. Again. ARGH!!

The ZFX jackpot is now $9000. My guess was already guessed, so now I’m all out of (good) ideas…

That CKNW game is so fun! It’s ridiculously hard too, but I love puzzles so this is right up my alley! I started keeping track of the guesses, the link is below. I will likely miss the 8am play, but should catch the others if I’m home.

New This Week:

The CKNW game, which plays at 8, 12, and 5 each weekday until someone wins. Dial 604-280-9898 when you hear the cue to call.

Some stations are hitting the college campuses to give away some swag (and entice listeners). Today the Virgin crew will be at Kwantlen in Richmond from 11 – 2. They will have coupons for food, smoothies, and yoga. You can also enter to win $2000.

Kiss’s crew will be at KPU in Surrey from 10 – 2 with Paldo Noodles.

The Peak will be at VCC Downtown Campus from 8 – 10, and SFU in BCIT from 12 – 2.

Stevie Nicks is coming to Vancouver on December 9th with The Pretenders, so some stations may have tickets for that. QMFM has them sometime between 3 & 8, Kiah & Tara Jean have them at 7:40 on Jack, and Willy has some in the morning on Rock 101.
