Wednesday Sept 7th

Posted on Sep 7, 2016

Stuff that happened:

Well, holy shitballs! Craig Stone turned up in Winnipeg!!! Wowzers…

The ZFX jackpot is now $7000. I was caller 6 for one of the plays on Tuesday (it was such a crazy day, I can’t even remember which play it was!!) But I love ZFX, and I will keep hitting redial until my fingers fall off. 😀

I had a chance to listen to Jack’s Shot in the Dark. Ummm… hmmmm… they ask you what songs you chose, then they simply hit a buzzer to say those were the wrong songs. So… who’s hitting the buzzer? Someone who is aware of what the correct songs are, of course. But the DJ is not supposed to know what the songs are, so… who’s hitting the buzzer?? I don’t like this game…

But I loooooooove Moolah (and her family!!) Kudos to the JRFM team for putting together a lovely little back story for the return of the Cash Cow – it was a delight to read! If you haven’t seen it, you can read this entertaining bit HERE. Cash Cow starts next week. SO FUN!!

New This Week:

I had to add 4 things to the overview of this week’s major contests, which is HERE.

And GODDAMNIT, Jack is playing Win At Work again! ARGH!! Their online schedule said it started Tuesday morning, but apparently it actually 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: 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!!

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

The Peak will be at Langara from 8-10, and Mahoney & Sons at UBC 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 and Willy has some in the morning on Rock 101.
