Tuesday Sept 6th

Posted on Sep 5, 2016

Stuff that happened:

No change to Craig Stone’s social media, still no idea where (or if) he’s going to pop up. But popular morning show host Steve Ayres from Kamloops is on the move after more than a decade – and I hear he’s on his way HERE! So… where’s he going to appear? Taking the evening spot on CFOX? Taking the morning spot on Peak? Hmmmm… well, he worked for a Jim Pattison station in Kamloops, so I guess it’s possible he’ll just transfer over to another JP station. If you hear him on air, let me know!!

The ZFX jackpot is already $6000. WHAT IS IT?!?! I have a decent guess so I’ll be trying to get through this week. I can’t share what it is because it’s not mine, and I’ll have to split the winnings if I win. I can’t say I’m 100% certain about this guess, but it’s the best one I’ve heard so far so I’ll stick with it until someone else guesses it…

The Peak’s playlist has definitely changed into harder rock – have you noticed?? Too bad about the morning host though… I hope they have the replacement announced soon!

New This Week:

The overview of this week’s major contests is HERE, including Jack’s new contest that starts today. I’m renaming it Shot In The Dark, because I can’t help calling a spade a spade. That is said with love, of course – it has to be HARD to win if the prize is $96,000!!! The list of 50 songs is HERE – have your three picked out before you play. When you hear the cue, text MIXTAPE to 969007. They will call you if you get to give them your 3 songs.

And GODDAMNIT, they’re playing Win At Work again! ARGH!! It starts today just after 8am. Listen for Jack FM to say “Hi!” to someone. That person has 30 minutes to call 604-872-2557 to win some cash. Usually it’s $100 or so, but sometimes it can be as much as $5000. I have always tried to hunt the person down so they can call in and claim their reward, but last season someone else started doing it too. So this year, if you’re on my list, I’ll call you. I will not be hunting people down. If you’re not on my list, just shoot me an email and tell me how to reach you: contestsvancouver@gmail.com. If you haven’t entered the contest, go HERE and sign up. You will also find the schedule of songs in that link – the song that will play right before they say the name. The only happy news here is that they changed the times – it now plays 9-9:30, 10-10:30, 2-2:30, 3-3:30. Whew!! And it starts tomorrow, even though the schedule says today. Humph.

There’s no sign of Moolah on JRFM yet, but my hopes are high!!!

Some stations are hitting the college campuses to give away some swag (and entice listeners). Today the Virgin crew will be at BCIT 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 Kwantlen in Richmond from 10 – 2 with Paldo Noodles.

The Peak will be handing out goodies (tuna and swag) at Douglas College in Coquitlam from 8:30 – 10:30. They will be giving away a pair of season passes to Mt. Seymour, and you can get into the draw for 2 electric bikes!

Also:

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.

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…

The list of online entry contests for this week is HERE. If you’re reading this on Monday or Tuesday, some have already ended. I’ll add new ones maybe on Wednesday, while the kids are in school.

Skeet the Skank analysis of previous plays is HERE.

Today:

There are only 8 people in today’s draw for the all-inclusive vacation on CFOX. Good luck if you’re one of those 8 – damned good odds!!! If you don’t win, you can qualify again. This is the best week to qualify – if everyone chose the vacation, there would still only be 16 people in the draw. Chances are there will be far less…

No more Gloria-ous words! I can feel Moolah breathing down my neck!!! She’s giving me shivers. They will have an announcement about it at 8:10 this morning.

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