January 2nd

Posted on Jan 2, 2018


I hope Santa was good to you. If you don’t do Santa, then I hope you had a lovely December and New Year’s celebration. Our holidays were low key – there was a 5 day stretch when I didn’t leave the house ONCE! Then I spent 2.5 days cleaning and organizing a friend’s apartment – it was the best gift she could’ve given me! I love cleaning and organizing. Weird eh?

2018 is getting off to a slow start. Look at that skinny schedule! LOL!! Rock 101’s contest page doesn’t even have the “Get Mugged” spot, which seems to be a staple. Strange. QMFM still has their Coffee Break bit, but not much else. It’ll be interesting to see who is at the mic this week – I know Willy’s off until the 8th and I think Nat & Drew are too.


There wasn’t much contest stuff to peruse so I busied myself with making a spreadsheet of ratings. I’ve pasted a copy of it into this post but it looks pretty messy. The info is all there though. It’s fascinating seeing how things have evolved in just the last 6 years! How Jack went from top of the heap to middle of the road when Larry and Willy left, how Willy’s arrival shot Rock 101 to the top, and the struggles of Zed since it was sold (and Nat & Drew went with the deal!) The rising star of LG is baffling – what are they doing differently? How did they climb from dead bottom to middle ground??

In other news…

Scooter joins the Zed morning show Tuesday – who’s tuning in?? I’m sure he’ll bring some pep to the show and it’ll be good to inject that male perspective. I’m not a huge fan of his voice or speaking style (sounds like a male version of a Valley Girl to me) but it’s not his fault, it’s just my ears. It’s a classic case of “it’s not you, it’s me!” Some tones grate, others are soothing, and his isn’t pleasing to me. But I think many of you will (and already do) love him. Starting a new venture is so very exciting and I wish him all the luck in his new job!

Major contests this week:

There’s nothing here right now but check back tomorrow as I’m hoping for some announcements. We may have to wait until next week though…







Rock 101:



Sportsnet: Canucks tickets


The contest pages have been updated. Nothing earth-shattering was revealed, but at least there are a few things happening:

Peak announced their Modern Rock contest where you can win tickets to ever concert and lounge performance this year. This is a great prize for Peak music lovers. More details in next week’s schedule.

You can log in to the Jack Pack to enter for tickets to the Boat Show and a chance at a boating adventure.

Log in at Rock 101 or CFOX to win 4 passes to the Motorcycle Show.

You can win $2018 from JRFM by downloading their App. Go to the 2018 tab (in the app) to enter to win. They will draw a winner on Jan 31st.

Also on JRFM, log in to enter for a houseboat getaway or tickets to Dirty Dancing.

Good GAWD, this time of year BLOWS! But as you can see from the table above, the ratings season doesn’t really get underway again until the end of February. Blah. Maybe Justin Timberlake will announce a concert along with his new album release on Friday…
