Sunday Sept 22
Hey! It’s Win-A-Trip-On-Rock-101 Monday! Good luck to you if you’re in the draw for that trip to Rome. Expect a call around 8am from WAK. The new location will be announced right after that.
CFOX appears to have amended their rules for the Mr. Fox contest and the new round actually started on Thursday instead of tomorrow. Huh. It took a long time to pinpoint his exact location in London so this round may take a while. It’s been two full days already and the country hasn’t even been figured out! I got to guess on Thursday and will be picking up my coveted CFOX t-shirt this week. It was too early in the game to get anywhere near an accurate guess, but I figured I’d take one for the team (because I really wanted that t-shirt!)
I’ve been having quite a bit of luck getting my phones ringing for ZFX too – apparently not everyone has time in the morning to sit beside their phone. Ha! They really caught me off guard on Tuesday when they did back-to-back plays. I reflexively dialled and panicked when I actually got to guess. I said opening a can of pop and knew it was wrong as the words left my lips. Ah well. I almost always get it ringing in the afternoons too, but haven’t gotten to guess then yet. Now that I actually HAVE a decent guess, I’ll be trying harder all week.
It was on a whim that I tuned into Peak one day this week and just happened to hear the cue to call for the Peak Wheel. I was the lucky caller and got to spin it (is there REALLY a wheel? I dunno.) and I won invites to the Peak Lounge performance of Of Monsters And Men. What a GREAT prize!!! I am thrilled to go see this amazing band for a private concert in an intimate setting.
According to the contest rules, I could play again if I wanted to. Boy, do I want to! But I won’t. Because I’m not a prize pig and I don’t need to win ALL the things. What I want YOU to do is spin that wheel and win your way into that performance this Saturday so we can share a toast with our bottle of Russel Brewing beer. Cheers!
You know who else is having a party in that same building? JR Country! They’re having a patio party on Friday where you can enjoy food from Hopcott Meats and beer from Coors Banquet. Shawn Austin will be performing. It doesn’t say what time it takes place but usually their patio parties are around noon. It’s supposed to be sunny that day so it’ll be the perfect kick-off to fall. There’s an online entry for this one which ends tomorrow, but you may be able to win your way in so keep listening all week.
Possible guesses for the ZFX are in the ZFX post HERE. The password is in the newsletter.
I’ll also be keeping track of the Cash Blast cards in that ZFX post, killing two birds with one stone (requiring you to only log into one post instead of two.)
My guess for Mr. Fox’s location is also in the newsletter.
New This Week:
Kiss Radio’s CASHBLAST sounds like exactly what it says – a blast! It goes like this: there are 16 cards on the board. Turn over three of them and if they all have a dollar amount, you win the total of those amounts. 13 of the cards will contain from $5 to $500, and three cards will be Zonks. If you hit a zonk (a zero dollar amount), you automatically lose. The next person to play will have the same set of cards to chose from, so it’s in your best interest to listen to which cards have been turned over. If all three of the cards have cash, the player wins that amount and the board is reset with a new set of cards.
If you play and win any amount (the lowest would be $15), you are out for the next 30 days. If you score more than $1000, you are out for the next SIX months. This is unlikely as they probably only have one card with $500 on it. I will be expecting a breakdown something like 3 x $5, 4 x $25, 3 x $50, 2 x $100, and 1 x $500. But don’t quote me on that.
The only down-side is the text-in aspect. Boo! But maybe we’ll crash their system like last week, when Jack had to take a caller instead because their texting exploded!
The Secret Word prize on JR this week is tickets to see Rascal Flatts in Abbotsford. I haven’t won anything from JR since July and I reeeeeally love Rascal Flatts, but I also wouldn’t mind getting into that patio party.
*cough* If you win, I’m available to be your plus one. *cough*
93.7 JR Country: Cash Cow. Check in on the JR app each day, then listen the following day at 7am, 11, 2, 5, and 7pm. If they call your name, you have 93 seconds to call in to either take a fast $50 or play Cash Cow. If the cow moos before you yell STOP, you lose everything. Starts Monday Sept 2nd and ends whenever they feel like it.
94.5 Virgin: Scratch, Win or Bust. Caller 25 at 7am and 8am gets to “scratch” cards for bigger and smaller amounts of cash. Stop before it BUSTS and you win that amount. Plays Aug. 26 – Oct. 11th.
Z95.3: ZFX. You know what to do but you don’t know when to do it. Listen for the cue two (sometimes three) times per day. Guess what that sound is and you win big cash. The trick is being the “right” caller (whatever that is.) Plays Aug. 26 – Oct. 18th.
96.9 : Mixed Tape. Listen for the cue to text at 6:30am and 7:30am each weekday. Which three songs are on the mixed tape? Choose from the list of 50 songs HERE (that’s 19,000 possible combinations). There will be 38 plays with only one guess each time. Play by texting MIXTAPE to 969007 when you hear the cue. You only get two minutes to text, then they will call back someone who will get to guess. If you guess the three songs correctly, you win $96,000. If you play but don’t win, you get $100 just for being you. Can’t have won anything worth more than $1000 from the station in the past six months. Starts Sept. 3rd and ends Sept. 27th.
99.3: Where in the World is Mr. Fox. Listen for the clue at 7am each morning. Guess where Mr. Fox is when you’re caller 9 at 8am, 11am, and 4pm. Win a t-shirt for trying. More details HERE. Plays Aug. 26 – Nov. 15th.
101.1: Taste the World. Get into the draw for a trip to somewhere each day at 8am, 11am, and 4pm. More details HERE. Plays Aug. 26 – Nov. 1st.
102.7: Spin the Wheel for tickets. Plays at 8, 11, 2, and 5. ish.
103.5: Beat the Bank. Be caller 25 at 7:05 and 8:05 to play. Say STOP before the alarm sounds and you win the cash. If the alarm sounds, you still win $100 to Kobe Steak House. Yum! Plays Aug. 26 – Oct. 25th.
104.3: Nothing new here.
104.9: Cash Blast. Turn over three cards with cash amounts and win the amount totalled. If you hit a zonk, you lose it all. Play weekdays at 7, 9, 12 and 4 until Oct. 18th. At the cue, text CASHBLAST and YOUR NAME to 10456.
