Thursday Sept 8th

Posted on Sep 8, 2016

Did anyone else come home from dropping off their kids and curl up in the fetal position hugging a blanket and cry tears of joy? No? Just me?

Stuff that happened:

I’m such a doofus. When Wendy won the $1000 in the 2pm play on CFOX, I logged in $1. I didn’t notice it was wrong until I went to log in the 5pm play! AUGH!!! I’m such a JERK!!! I hope Scott wasn’t a follower and didn’t choose cash based on that blog post. I feel horrible!!! I mean, what would possess me to write $1 when I was so happy for her winning $1000?!?! Where did the other three zeroes go??? Did I put them in and forget to hit the UPDATE button before I closed the post? That can happen. I always put in $1 while the play is happening, then fill in the rest once the play is over. I really must stop doing that…

I missed the 2pm Jack name. I kind of forgot all about it until it was too late. I have a lot on my plate right now… heh… I’ll try to catch them all today!

Jack’s Shot in the Dark game does the “cue to text” on the hour, not at ten past. So when the rules say:

“Listen for your cue to text(*)  MIXTAPE to 969007 each weekday at 8:10AM, 11:10AM, 1:10PM & 4:10PM”

what they REALLY mean is “listen for your cue to text(*) MIXTAPE to 969007 each weekday at 8, 11, 1, and 4” and “listen for the game to be played at 8:10, 11:10, 1:10, and 4:10.”


The ZFX jackpot is now $8000. I was caller 5 for the 11am play. ARGHARGHARGHARGH!!!

CKNW has a fun contest where you guess the names of the people saying “I want to go to Australia. G’day mate!” Each part is said by a different famous person. If you guess all of them in the correct order, you instantly win an amazing trip to Australia. The trip is worth over $9000, so there’s no wonder they’ve made it super hard. I recorded it, so if you want to hear it, just let me know and I’ll send it to you. It’s the same as that Mystery Laughs game that Rock 101 had – they tell you how many voices you have right and if they are in the right spot. I can’t listen to the 8am play, but I might be able to catch the 12 and 5 plays. It’s a really fun game, though listening to the person yesterday was torturous – if you’re calling in, HAVE YOUR GUESSES READY!!! The hemming and hawing are gawdawful on live radio…

New This Week:

I didn’t put in 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 SFU Surrey 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 Sprott Shaw College in East Van from 10 – 2 with Paldo Noodles.

The Peak will be at Kwantlen in Surrey from 8:30 – 10:30, and SFU in Burnaby from 12:30 – 2:30.

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.


It’s $15,000 Thursday.

Listen for “Stop Dragin’ My Heart Around” on LG to win Stevie Nicks with The Pretenders tickets.

Somebody please get that last question for You Can’t Win This So Don’t Bother. Please. I hope Jewel comes and eats that damned game!!

Listen to Nat & Drew for the cue to call to win your way into their suite to watch the BC Lions on September 9th.
