Sunday Feb 16

Posted on Feb 17, 2020


I’m sure you’re all dying to know if I got that job. I didn’t. At least, I am pretty sure I didn’t. At the interview they said they would let me know by the weekend. On Friday I got an email saying they hadn’t made their decision yet but I was still in the running and they’d let me know some time next week. I am quite certain they just didn’t want to give me the bad news on Valentine’s Day (nice of them) or on Family Day (also nice) but I fully expect a thanks-but-no-thanks call on Tuesday or Wednesday. Meanwhile, I shall keep plugging away and sending out resumes hither and yon. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

I was sad about the job on Friday but then the tides turned and I won those Stones tickets I was trying to get! WOOOHOOOOO!! I’ve never seen them and I’m SO excited! I will take our 13 year old if she wants to go, otherwise it’s a date with hubby.

Just before that I won those John Legend tickets I was dying for, so at least I’ve got some great live music to look forward to this year. I didn’t bother trying for the other tickets being given out last week – Rage Against The Machine, Backstreet Boys, Janet Jackson, Camila Cabello, etc. I hope you won the ones you wanted!

I’ve listened to Peak’s Montage and it’s pretty much just as hard as it was before. A few times people had NO guesses at all – WHY ARE THEY TEXTING IN?! Seriously. Stop that. And I’m not sure many people are playing – Julia has already gotten to guess THREE TIMES! She must be a friend of theirs to get called back that many times from a text-in contest. The current montage is at $900 and two of the three songs are “I Will Wait” and “Bad Guy”… I have no idea what the third one is.

JR is having a birthday party – for YOU! If you were born on the leap year, you can join them for some cake and games on Saturday the 29th. Just sign up HERE for your invite.

Speaking of JR, Clay and Karen are away on vacay until March but Graeme will be covering. He won’t be doing the Secret Word but he will have tickets to watch the Warriors game in the suite on the 29th.

There are no contests listed for the QM and Virgin morning shows so maybe they’re also on vacay. However, Virgin WILL have Lennon Stella tickets four times each day and it says that will start on Monday. Monday’s a stat holiday but maybe Bell doesn’t care. We’ll find out tomorrow!

Jack has $1500 to Stor-X storage solutions so go upload a photo of your cramped closet HERE. Login required.

Kiss has a fly-away to see Justin Bieber in New York on September 26th. Listen for the code word and text it ONCE per occasion to 10456. The contest takes entries from three cities so your chances are slimmer, but your chances are zero if you don’t even try. So try! Did you see Justin on SNL the other week? He played Yummy (barf) but also played Intentions, which I really enjoyed.

Good luck if you’re in the draw for the trip to Montreal to see Elton John. And if you’ve entered the CFOX game you should really listen – so many haven’t called back! On at least four occasions, neither of the names called were listening. That’s crazy.

Another week of these doldrums and then we get a boost of energy – Gold Digger starts! I suspect others will join them or follow shortly thereafter – Beat the Bank, Phrase That Pays, etc. Meanwhile you can try to get your name into the draw for the next Rock 101 getaway (a European destination, possibly London or Iceland or Germany) starting Tuesday and keep listening for your name on CFOX.
