Monday July 30th
If you’re a CFOX listener, you’ll know they merged the Meredith and Jeremy shows and brought in Alex Carr for the midday show. I applaud the change. Change is good. And two hosts on the afternoon drive are better than one. Peak did it, JRFM did it, now CFOX has done it, and I hope others follow suit. It’s much more fun when the host has someone else to talk to – banter is engaging! I feel sorry for the midday hosts, having to make up content all on their own, talking to themselves, phoning listeners just to break up the monotony… or at least, that’s how I imagine it.
I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Ellen DeGeneres is coming to Vancouver this October. If anyone has tickets to this and is willing to trade for Justin Timberlake tickets, please let me know. I’ll just wait here until you’re done laughing…
Jack fumbled the ball again. They told people to call in but their phone lines weren’t working! Yet, somehow they got a qualifier anyway. Whatever. Their lines are back up and working, so good luck with that. I doubt the counting issue was resolved though.
This is your last day to enter the proposal contest on Kiss! Someone gets to propose to their significant other while fireworks explode nearby. The couple chosen to share their special moment with 100,000 people on August 4th will win a $5,000 honeymoon. Enter your love story HERE (100 words or less) and include a picture or video. The entries will be judged on July 30th so get them in quickly!
Monday is the final trip winner’s announcement on CFOX and Rock 101. Good luck if you’re in the draw. I wonder what they’ll have for us next? Ooooh, I hope it’s a trip to my favourite – VEGAS!!!
Speaking of Vegas, I think it’s time for Zed to send me there. I mean, send SOMEONE there. There’s another month until ZFX comes back – let’s do something FUN, Zed! JRFM has Rockin’ River Fest, Peak has Seattle, Kiss has Montreal, QMFM has Osoyoos. Ante up, Zed. I have three more weeks to kill before we go on our little vacation so I need something to play for!!!
New This Week:
Virgin will have Jay-Z and Beyonce (JayBey) tickets three times per day for caller 25.
JR is having a BBQ on Wednesday, August 1st. It’s on their patio at the station, and Dallas Smith will be there to serenade you while you eat food from Hopcott Meats. Listen to win your way in. They might have more Rockin’ River Fest tickets this week but I’m not sure…
Luke Bryan tickets still on JRFM once per day. You can log in HERE to find out the exact times the cue will play.
Text “FIREWORKS” to 953953 and you could win VIP seats for the Celebration of Light shows.
Instead of putting in the links for individual contests, I’m only going to put in a link to that station’s contest page. I’ll tell you what’s there so you don’t have to waste your time looking though.
