Monday Sept 7
Limber up, everybody! It’s GAME TIME!!!
OMG I’m starting to panic. Today is the last day of this six month long vacation because it’s time to set a dozen alarms on my phone. Not only are Beat The Bank and Virgin’s code words back this week, we also now have to listen for our names on Zed, listen for Jewel to Moo on JR, and celebrities to say a word on Rock 101! Yeesh! How are we going to do all of THAT?!
I’m here to help! I will be listening for names on Zed so if you’re on my list, of names to listen for, I’ll call/text/message you if they call your name. If you’re not on my list but would like to be, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your name and the best way to contact you within 9 minutes and 53 seconds (phone call, text, DM on Twitter or FB, etc.) Zed will be calling names at 8, 12 and 5, and if you call back within 9 minutes and 53 seconds, you win $500. Go sign up HERE if you haven’t already.
JR has $10,000 to give away (well, not yet, but they’re saving up!) Listen for Jewel to MOO at some point during the day. When you hear her (in a song, while someone’s talking, whenever) call in to get your name in the draw for the $10,000. If you qualify, you win $100 to SaveOn. That is a sweet prize in itself – I can buy a lot with $100 – so definitely worth listening for. I’m not sure how many times per day Jewel will moo, but I suspect it will be at least once and possibly twice. Then what? I’m not sure! Their site doesn’t say when the contest ends or when the draw will be (which is illegal!) so just get your name in the draw and hang tight, I guess they’ll let you know if you won $10,000. BTW, I much prefer THIS method of giving away $10,000 than the previous “listen for this song to play and be caller 93” game.
The Peak also has SaveOn cards. They will draw two names each week from everyone who suggests a mascot. What would you like to see as the Peak Mascot? It can be a person, an animal, an object, a plant, whatever. (I wonder how many pot plant suggestions they’ll get? Maybe come up with something a little more original.) Go put your suggestion in HERE and maybe you’ll win $100 to SaveOn. If your mascot is chosen, you don’t actually win anything but bragging rights, but still… I’ll throw my hat in that ring!!!
BTW, $1000 Minute is back on QM. And Rock 101 has money for the Grand IQ test again, except the amounts are different: $50, $100, $150, $200, $1000. Also different: they call YOU. If you think you’ve got the smarts, go enter HERE and they may just call you at 7:20 am to play trivia. The questions are just hard though, so I’ll give that a miss…
What I won’t be missing is Rock 101’s Mouth Off! I will be listening at 8, 11, 2 and 5 each day. They are going to have six different celebrity voices saying “I love Rock one oh one.” If you can get all six celebrities in the correct order, you win $5000. WOOT! They will list all the incorrect guesses on their site HERE, but they won’t tell you which ones someone got right so you have to listen and keep track yourself. I’m on it!!! Newsletter subscribers will have access to the posts where I keep track of things so check the newsletter for passwords. Rock 101 will also be posting a daily cryptic clue on their Instagram page so make sure you check that daily.
The last time Corus played this game was when CKNW had the “I want to go to Mexico, ole!” game. I remember being super frustrated because one (or was it two?) hosts counted wrong and told us there were three correct when in fact there were four, or was it the other way around? Whatever it was, they really screwed us over and the game went on longer than it should have. We now have to trust that Willy, Robin and Dean are going to count correctly. Ugh. I know Alece and Kim will get it right and keep Willy on track, but Robin and Dean are crap shoots. We’ll see how it goes. There are four prizes of $5000 to be won over the next few months so it should take no more than two weeks to solve each montage. I’ve already started a list of celebrity names, including Seth Rogen, Ryan Reynolds, Justin Trudeau, Julia Roberts, Bonnie Henry, Bryan Adams, Groucho Marx, Scooby Doo…
Rock 101 is also doing something else interesting: they are challenging you to make as many sandwiches as you can in 60 seconds. The winner gets a PS5! Rules and entry are HERE. Good luck!
The Breeze is inviting you to listen to them each day. If you hear the Artist of the Day, text your full name to 604-280-1043 only ONCE. The next day, Kelly will announce the name of the texter who gets their name into the weekly draw for $5000. The contest is being held at TWO Breeze stations (here and Edmonton) so there will be ten (10) people in each weekly draw for the $5000. Still pretty great odds, and totally worth listening for. Listen at 8am to hear who the Artist of the Day is – if you miss it, they will likely post it on their website and/or the socials. You could probably also just call and ask Kelly – he’s too nice to say no!
Okay, that’s all I’ve got for now, and that’s likely all we’ll get for the next few months. Set those alarms, perk those ears, and get those dialling/texting fingers ready. GAME ON!!!
BTW, before I finished this schedule I went and entered my mascot over on the Peak’s page. My entry reads: “you’ve heard of Craft Beer, but have you ever met Craft Bear? He’s made of craft paper and a toilet paper roll, with googly eyes and a button nose. He wears a Peak Tshirt and is ready to hug you.” Baaaahahaha! I can hear the poop jokes now… but wouldn’t he be CUTE?!
