There’s a wheel! There’s really a wheel!!!

Yesterday I was at The Peak for the Of Monsters and Men pre-show show and while there, we got to have a station tour. I’ve toured this station before a few times, but this time we got to go INTO the studio where Emily was doing her show. She’s lovely, by the way. In that studio, right there by the far wall, is a wheel. With prizes. And I got to spin it. I hit BUST, of course, but so did Tyler (of Tyler and Lynch) so I didn’t feel too bad about it.

Speaking of the Peak Lounge, I would just like to say that OMG Of Monsters and Men are amazing!! Just their accents make them beyond cool, but their music is other-worldly. They didn’t sing Little Talks but they sang Alligator and a few others I didn’t recognize but enjoyed thoroughly. The Russell Beer was delish, and the whole vibe was very cool. If you can, try to win your way into one of these Lounge performances – either with JR or with Peak – because they are really, really special.

I was sitting next to a woman at the show and in our brief chat she shared she listens to CFOX’s morning show because the dudes at the Peak are “too juvenile”. She was a fan of Clinton’s and Jason’s though so I guess that’s how she won her way in. I kept my opinions to myself. I try to separate online personalities from in-person personalities – some people are dicks on-air but super nice in person. Me included. Or it might be the other way around. Ha ha!

Rock 101 gave away that trip to Rome last Monday and promptly started the contest for their new destination: Germany! Oooooohhhhh awesome! Travel dates are November 7-12 so you’ll miss Octoberfest but SO WHAT?! You’ll be in Munich! WOOT!

I didn’t think I’d enjoy Kiss’s contest as much as I am. It’s truly a blast! Even though they never call me back. Boo! I hate text-in contests. I’m always wondering if I should text more than once but I never do, just in case…

ZFX is driving me up the wall because I can’t figure out what that TSHHH sound is! Is it pressure releasing? Water spraying? Gas? Air? WHAT??? Ugh, it’s taking up too much space in my brain. Someone please just solve it so we can get on with our lives. I can get through for you if you just give me your guess…

Mr. Fox is very good at hiding but boy did Sheryl nail it on Tuesday! She guessed Ueno Zoo in Tokyo Japan and BAM! She snapped up the trip just like THAT. *snap* Now that little bugger Mr. Fox has jumped ship on the shores of the Americas and it’s up to you to figure out exactly where he’s sipping his cocktails. Take your guess at 8:35, 11ish, and around 4 daily.

Jack’s Mixtape has ended and surprise, surprise, nobody won $96,000! Huh. I never got to guess but on Friday morning they phoned me just to chat. I had texted them an answer to their “you know it’s fall when… ” conversation so they decided to engage. I had just been punched in the face by a nasty cold so I sniffled through our brief chat. They were nice, and clearly in need of outside help with show content. You should call them and help them out…

Newsletter subscribers:

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.

Online contest links and some other inside info too. Go open the newsletter!

This Week:

JR’s Secret Word prize is either tickets to see Rock the Rink with Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, Elvis Stojko, etc. OR tickets to Chillaxification. What’s Chillaxification? Well let me tell you! It’s a concert taking place in Seattle next July and has Kenny Chesney, Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, and Michael Franti & Spearhead. Michael Franti is a lovely human being and I would be honoured just to breathe the same air. Either of these prizes would be amazing so set your alarms and get in on the Secret Word this week!

Also on JR, Clay and Karen are sleeping around again! Those tarts! And this time they’re going to Vegas so you know what THAT means… OMG SO MUCH FUN!!! They are taking someone with them to hang out in Vegas from Oct 23-26th where they will attend the Willie Nelson concert at the Venetian. He’s doing a show that Wednesday and that Friday, so probably they will go to the Friday show. Only enter if you can travel those dates. It doesn’t say where they’re staying but if it’s the Venetian, that’s one fancy place! Go enter HERE. I did!

Don’t forget to listen all week to win your way in to see Morgan Wallen in the JR Lounge on Saturday, Oct. 19th. There will be beer and food (I think) and having just been to one of these, I highly recommend you go. Highly recommend.

Peak has a Harvest Haus Octoberfest prize on their sites but I couldn’t enter because I don’t remember my login. You should go enter though – great prize! Octoberfest is a hoot but I’ve never been to this event at the PNE. I want to go! So if you win that prize for ten people and you only have 8 friends, take me with you!!! I’m sure seeing a 53 year old in a dirndl isn’t your idea of a good time, but I promise to make it memorable at least. Heh.

Zed also has that Harvest Haus prize but it’s for 8 people. That contest ends tonight. Go enter on their site! They also have Serena Ryder tickets so that’s also worth logging in for…

QMFM will have tickets to see Celine Dion. She will be here for two shows in April and you can win tickets at 9, 11, 1 and 4.

Virgin has tickets to see Billie Eilish twice per day, and tickets to see Bastille in the evenings with Ari. They also have a trip to see a private Halsey concert, you’ll find that on their contests page.

It’s possible Zed will have tickets to Billie too, I’d listen for those in the mornings and also around 4pm. IF they have them, that is. Bastille seems like something CFOX and Peak would have, so keep an ear open for those.

You can log in over at Jack to win tickets to The Who. THE WHO!!! Definitely worth trying to remember my password for…


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.

Jack: Mixtape is over.

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.
