Monday Jan 9th
It’s time to pay-it-forward because #BeccaToldMeTo, so today’s schedule is not password protected – it’s for anyone and everyone who loves radio contests!
The links in it and the rest of this week’s schedules are only for members though. Other member benefits: they all have my cell number so they can text me if they have any questions. And when the time comes, I will text them when “the song” comes on… 😉
I would like to say a quick THANK YOU! to Zed for changing their game times. The 7, 8, 5, and 6 schedule is SO convenient! People can play BEFORE school or work, or they can play AFTER school or work, and they don’t need to take their breaks at 11 and 2 just to play a game. It’s awesome! Emilie doesn’t get to play the game during her show, so I hope they give her a prize to award during the day. Ooooh, a secret-word-type game would be fun!
We are off to another slow start, but things are looking up!
Speaking of ups and downs, thumbs down to JRFM for removing their “Secret Word” post from the contests page. Boo! Maybe it was just an oversight?? Maybe it’ll be back up when I go to log in my 1K A Day words… I don’t want to win (I’d rather play Red Solo Cup!!!) but it’s hard to resist playing when I’m collecting the words for you anyway (link below for members).
Isn’t it about time Peak and Kiss made some morning show announcements?? I’ve still got my hopes up for #TODDsquad, but it’s possible they’ve already got someone else lined up. I hope so anyway, because I can’t listen to Peak in the mornings anymore. It was fine when Casey-Jo was there, but now… ugh. Sorry, J & J.
It didn’t look good for the Jeff O’Neil Show last week, but it seems that the person who writes the schedule was just on vacation. Heh. So now that the schedule is updated, we know that JOS will be back tomorrow (Tuesday). And Robin is back for the 10-2 shift on Rock 101, but Scott Alan is away so there’s just muzak after 6pm. Matty B will be back today too! Yaay!
New This Week:
The Virgin morning crew are in Punta Cana this week with the 40 people who won their way onto the plane. Lucky bums! At 8:10 they will be giving one of those trips to caller 94. Will it be YOU?? These trips are worth $3400 each and include everything – air fare, all-inclusive accommodations, and transfers at the destination. The trip is good till December 20th, so you can use it at your convenience (subject to availability of airline and hotel, so book early!) It’s not adults-only (there’s a water park and babysitting) so this is a great opportunity to do some family bonding. FUN!
You can’t win if you’ve won ANYTHING from ANY Bell station in the past 30 days. And if you win, you can’t win anything else for another 30 days. If you don’t win, you’ll have a shot at another trip NEXT week on QMFM. WOOT!
There is a concert announcement happening EARLY today. ***SPOILER ALERT*** It’s U2. Kiah and Tara Jean are getting up extra early so they can give you the good news, and hopefully some tickets too. Willy will also have tickets, but I don’t think he’ll be going to work extra early to give them away. I’d listen for them fairly early though, just in case (he starts work at 6!) Other stations will probably have tickets too – Zed, QM, CFOX, maybe even TSN! I’d expect announcements for those later today.
Update: everyone has the tickets! LG, CFOX (JOS and Jeremy’s show), Jack, etc. The Peak is giving theirs away with a text-in contests: listen for a U2 song, text U2 and your name to 88000 and they will give away the tickets at the end of the song. Blah.
And of course, today is the first day of JRFM’s 1K A Day game. Collect the 5 code words each day (7, 11, 2, 5, and 7) and enter them in your Online Insider account before midnight (I will post the words right after the 7pm word). The next morning they will draw one entry from the thousands and thousands of entries, and that person will win $1000. This is an automatic win – no need to call them back if you hear your name. As you know, I’m not a fan of this game: too many entries – the odds are ridiculous for the amount of work required. But the nice thing is that you are still in the draw even if you only catch ONE word. So I will try to catch them all but if I miss one, please forgive me. Maybe the @FREEContestsVan person will get them all for you – you can find their website HERE.
Z95.3 is playing Whose Song Is It Anyway?
1K A Day words at 7, 11, 2, 5, and 7.
There are going to be many updates to the schedule today, so you’ll see those in tomorrow’s schedule (members only). I’m hoping for at least the *promise* of a new contest from CFOX, Rock 101, and Jack. Kiss and Peak should be jumping on board soon too – the ratings race will be starting any time now! I’m expecting some name-calling contests with this round – Beat Your Bills, Payroll, Win At Work, Phrase That Pays, etc – so if I don’t have you on my list of names to listen for, get it to me asap! You can email me your contact info at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can send me a DM via Facebook or Twitter. This “service” is free for everyone – if I’m checking the list for members’ names anyway, it takes no extra time to check for yours too. Even if you’re not a member, I still want you to win! But I won’t be tracking people down anymore – it was fun, but now I have bigger fish to fry so I don’t have time for it.
