I popped my head up and saw my shadow. That means we have another week of wintery freeze, contest-wise. By the end of the week we should see some big contest announcements.
On Friday morning I got the weekly newsletter from Zed. It trumpeted the Mariachi Mania contest which ended an hour later. I was soooo hoping for a ZFX announcement! BAH!
Speaking of newsletters, we haven’t received one from Rock 101 since January 31st. And by “we” I mean my friends, because they won’t send me one. Has anyone else gotten one??
The plane to Vegas is full, so CFOX and 101 aren’t taking any more applications. Boo! If you won your way on, congrats! Have a great time! I wrote a story about being Kim’s plus one for that trip, you can read that HERE if you’re interested. I emailed the story to her but she didn’t reply, probably thinks I’m a whackadoodle. Ha! Maybe they’re right…
I am stretching my creative muscle with stories in preparation for writing the book so I also wrote a story about what might happen at Stagecoach with Clay and Karen. You can read that one HERE.
Corus announced a bunch of layoffs last week. I keep checking the radio station schedules to see if anyone’s missing, but so far everyone we know is safe. I’ll let you know if I hear anything.
New This Week:
Jeff O’Neil has your tickets to see Pearl Jam in Seattle. Listen to the morning show this week for the cue to call. Caller 9 wins two tickets to the concert on August 8th plus one night in a hotel. You have to find your own way down to Seattle.
