Monday April 17

Posted on Apr 17, 2017

Things That Happened:

Today is NOT a statutory holiday, therefore everything should be playing like a normal Monday. I think today is what they call a “bank holiday”, and it’s also a school holiday. The kids are home but I will be ignoring them today! All this togetherness is highly overrated, and I’m pretty much over trying to entertain them. We shopped at the mall, bounced on trampolines, ate rhubarb, cleaned out closets, played basketball, etc. I’m exhausted. No child ever died from watching too much tv in one day… heh…

I happened to check up on Kid Carson this weekend. His website says “Kid has something up his sleeve.” His Instagram says to sign up for the newsletter at “to know first.” So! What does Kid have planned? Any guesses?


Beat the Crank has been extended! We get to keep trying to play for another TWO WEEKS! Yaay! It now ends April 28th instead.

Defeat Your Debts finally ended (happy dance) and now you can win concert tickets four times per day instead.

Dough or D’oh goes till June, so no end in sight for that.

Payroll ends May 5th, so three more weeks of CFOX calling us names.

Kiss plays Nth track until the end of the month – two more weeks.

JRFM and Peak have the Artist of the Day.

Total Recall continues on TSN.

This is the last week of Name That Tune on Jack, then they start a new contest called Jack in the Box Office. I look forward to hearing about it!

And in case you missed it, ZFX is worth $20,000 at 8am! WHAAAAAAT?!?! Crazy. They bumped it up on Friday because the contest was supposed to be over, but nobody has gotten this sound yet. Or if they have, they can’t get through. My ZFX guru friend said she agreed with my latest guess, so she really has my hopes up. Now if only I could get through to guess… fingers crossed for a power hour!

The song to text to 10456 at 7:30 this morning is “One Dance (feat Wizkid & Kyla) by Drake”

There will definitely be updates so check back later.
