For shits ‘n’ giggles

Posted on Jul 10, 2017

You know what annoys me?

Besides internet trolls, mouth breathers, and Trump?

Being told what to do. That annoys me more than all of those things put together.

Sometimes I get downright snarky just when someone waves me through the intersection at a four way stop!

So when people tell me not to post a schedule, do you know what I do?

That’s right.

I pour myself a gin and tonic and stare at my screen for a few weeks, contemplating life and what’s gone and what’s to come.

The future is bright and I have big, BIG plans. But they are coming
together slowly, and I’m in a bit of a holding pattern right now. So I
decided it was a good time to take a break from my reading and have
some fun!

It seems the Free schedule has petered out again, so here’s a quick one to tide you over until they decide to pick up the baton again. Maybe they’re just not that into you…

So far this week (check back for updates):

JRFM will have passes to Gone Country. Listen for the cue to text,
which will happen 4 times per day. Text “win” and your name to 88000.
You have to be over 19 to win this one.

JRFM will also have Rockin’ River Fest (Aug 3-6 in Merritt) full weekend passes plus campsite jam invites. Listen for the cue to call 3 times per day. This would be a blast! I think I’ll be trying for this one…

Kiss has a new online rewards club. Barf. If you’re interested in winning Ed Sheeran tickets, go sign up and enter through their exclusive snub. I mean, club. Without entering their flub, I mean club, you can enter online to win passes to the movie Girls Trip (which to me seems to be missing an apostrophe, but whatever.)

Jack has moved to online entry contests, and this week they have YES tickets, movie passes, Matchbox Twenty & Counting Crows tickets, a row of movie passes, and passes to the Vancouver Art Gallery. Thank
goodness these are all online-entry because if I had to listen to Jack
to win, it wouldn’t happen. Oh! I guess that’s one more thing I can add to the list of annoyances: the Jack morning show. Ugh. I shouldn’t have had my expectations so high…

Speaking of madness, CFOX’s Mariachi Madness is happening again this summer. They take qualifiers all week, then draw a winner on Monday
mornings. How crazy was it last week when the same person won the draw for the trip on CFOX and also the draw for the trip on Rock 101?! I’ll bet ol’ Mikey lost his shit when he found out!! I mean, what are the freakin’ ODDS?!?! Lucky chickie…

Right, so Rock 101 sent someone down to LA for a cool concert, and all they have left are hot wieners. Enter on their site to win a Hastings
Racecourse prize pack, and maybe catch the wiener dog races next
weekend! They also have Boz Scaggs tickets, so go enter for those while you’re there.

QMFM and Virgin are laying low. Maybe there’s a concert or contest
announcement around the corner? I’ll update when I know.

***UPDATE*** JayZ is coming, and everyone has tickets! Kiss has them twice per day, Zed and Virgin have them too. There is another concert announcement too, so more tickets will be in the schedule soon. Check back in a bit!

Deadmouse is also coming, and Kiss has those tickets too!

    Nice to hear from you again AB! You posted a schedule and reviewed all of their promotions. I wonder how many people hated on the winner of the Fox and 101 trips, I mean the same person winning. My desire to win is pretty much shot.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one not loving the new Jack morning show. As I listen on old school analog radio, hidden in my bra….hard to keep changing stations. I find I’m pulling out my earbud more & more. I do like that Kenny is back, in the PM, so enjoy that in the afternoon & my transit ride home with the great unwashed. Need it to drown out the noise. Never like “Laurie” that left a few months back either.
