Sunday April 5
The day got away from me so I’m going to make this quick:
Kid Carson started on Monday and booted the Zillionaire right out the door. This did not endear him to me. At. All. I listened for the whole show Monday, then posted a review video in the afternoon. They literally sounded like two dudes who had smoked a joint and were sitting around giggling while they reminisced. Beavis and Butthead meets Wayne and Garth meets Cheech and Chong. I felt like an outsider eavesdropping on two friends sitting in front of me on a bus. A hazy, dope-filled bus. It was pretty much just a podcast.
Then Sutto said I couldn’t judge a show by just one listen so I listened the rest of the week. My expectations were lower so the rest of the week wasn’t as disappointing as the first day. The only time I was actually interested was when they called Crosby on April Fools Day. He had misheard some of their conversation and had texted a reprimand. I am still not sure if that was an April Fools joke…
If you love Kid, that’s great. Enjoy. I do not, and have no need to listen to him further to solidify that opinion. I even switched my shower radio to a different station after having it on Zed for the past four years (because I shower in the mornings, obvs.)
Not only is Kid’s show un-relatable (I heard enough conspiracy theories in the first week), he also has no prizes to give away. He is broadcasting from his own studio and I guess he doesn’t have a phone system set up. I’m sure they’ll work that out in the future. Or not.
I’ve actually been listening to The Breeze at work because I can play it quietly at my desk. With all this social distancing, nobody ever gets close enough to hear it! I sit there and chair-dance until I go home at 1. I’m streaming though, and if the phone rings or I run to the washroom I sometimes miss the artist of the day. Then on Thursday the streaming cut out just before they played the song and by the time I got it back it was over. Humph. Oh well, still fun to listen while I work. I switch to Matty B for my drive home.
The return of QMFM’s $1000 Minute was a nice surprise. You smarties can play that around 7:30 with Nat & Drew.
Beat Your Bills is also returning – enter today to win money tomorrow! They will call a name at 8:10, 11:10, and 3:10. The person has 15 minutes to call them back – this is great if you’re driving and have to pull over. If they don’t call back, they go back into the draw and could be called again. They will pay bills up to $500. Go enter your bill HERE.
Also on Virgin, they will be giving $100 for shout-outs at 7:30. Caller 25 gets to nominate someone to win $100. This is the same thing Peak is doing at 8 and 4 with their Hundred Dollar Hurrah.
JR has $25 gift cards for their Secret Word prizes this week. $25 to White Spot and $25 to SaveOn. Twenty Five dollars. Twenty five. Twenty. Five.
I’m not sure what THIS is all about but Jeff, Charis and Paul are doing a Facebook Live on Tuesday morning at 9am. I’ll be at work so can’t watch it but if YOU do, let me know what that was all about!
I also did another Facebook Live on Friday night and it was really fun! Thanks to those who joined me. We didn’t win the lotto with our ticket but we still had a good time. Or I did anyway.
On a brighter note, I got my cheque from Zed. I’m not sure if our mailman recovered from Covid or if the Zillionaire dropped it off himself (I wasn’t home). Either way, I was thrilled to get it and now I wish I had some place to spend it. *sigh*
