Monday April 3

Posted on Apr 2, 2017

Things That Happened:

I thought this was the last week for Defeat Your Debts but it turns out they’ve extended the contest to April 13th. That’s 16 more chances to win. Hope they call your name!

ZFX also ends on April 13th – less than 2 weeks to get through and guess! AUGH!! I haven’t come up with a new guess so I’m sticking with the #2 guess on my ZFX post.

Beat the Crank had some pretty crappy jackpots on Friday. I was caller 4 and caller 20 for the 11am play. Humph. Glad I didn’t get to play. I must be getting through because the big players have already had a turn and can’t play anymore. Yay! My turn soon…. *hope hope hope*

I’m going to be missing everything this morning so please listen if you can. I’ll have everything covered from 11am onwards, except for the 3pm Jack name – looks like it’ll be a sunny day so there will be after-school-kerfuffle happening!

New This Week:

Kiss has an interesting game starting this morning at 7:30 called Commercial Free Cash. I haven’t seen a game like this before so just the fact it’s different has me interested, despite the text-in-to-win portion. It goes like this: at 7:30 each morning (M-F) Kevin & Sonia will tell you which “track number” they will be looking for the next day. During their “90 minutes commercial free” at 12pm, 3pm, and 8pm, listen to find out which song/artist is playing as the “nth” track. For example, if they say “the 12th track”, listen for the 12th song that plays during that 90 minutes.

There are probably 20 to 25 songs that play during that 90 minutes but I’d expect many (if not all) to be the same. We’ll find out in the first day if they play the same song lineup for each 90 minutes! Assuming it will be the same song/artist as the nth track, write it down – when you hear the cue to text at 7:30 the next morning, text the name of the song and the artist/band to 10456. If enough of us text, we *might* break the text-a-tron2000, in which case they will take the 10th caller to 1-877-936-4487. Let’s aim for that, as I don’t really trust there will be a “random draw” at the station to choose a winner. Hah!

Other things to know about this game: there are 13 prizes of $500, 6 prizes of $1000, and one prize of $2000. You can’t have won anything from the station in the past 30 days, and you can’t have won anything from them worth more than $1000 in the past six months. Fair enough. The game plays Monday through Friday from today until May 1st. Fun!

JRFM has tickets to Kip Moore in Abbotsford on the 21st. Listen for them to tell you where Jewel will be, then be the first or second person to go up to her and say the winning phrase: Hey pretty girl, can I have a pair of Kip Moore tickets?

Please note: you can’t win them until the farmer has made the official announcement on the air; you can’t yell at her from your car or across the street or from a window – you must walk right up to her and say the phrase; two pairs will be given out at each location this week; you have to be 18 years old to win; one winner per household.
