Sunday Sept 13
Wow, last week was a gong show! I could barely get anything done during the day because I was constantly listening for one thing or another on the radio. Now that the shock has worn off, I’ll be in the swing of things this week.
There is nothing new on the agenda for this week so this space will be used to congratulate Clay and Karen for having the best ratings of their radio careers – HUGE CONGRATS! Also congrats to Rock 101 for overtaking QMFM, which has held the top spot forever. Interestingly, JR managed to overtake BOTH QMFM and 101 – strange. You can see all the ratings HERE if you’re interested. I am actually surprised at these results and it’s possible Covid has a lot to do with it (people not at work listening to the radio.) The next ratings will show something different I expect.
I played Mouth-Off twice last week. I’m so glad they are giving us clues because there’s no way in hell we could pick out those voices from a pool ten thousand celebrities! One of the voices I was able to discern right away and the second name I got from the Insta clue. We are sitting at 3/6 in the correct order (see all the details HERE. The password is in the schedule.) I predict it will all be over by Thursday morning…
Virgin code words are different at every hour so that is keeping me on my toes. The words are all pretty random – Cardi, sunset, Robson, debt, etc.
I got through for Beat the Bank a few times but never the right caller. They start answering the phones about 10 seconds before the song ends so by the time the song ends, it should only take two or three redials before they’ve already got their player. With this game there is no point in hitting redial through the whole song.
The names for Kid’s Cash this week were: Sarah Tanner, David Chan, Raluca Dascalu, Melissa L’Hirondelle, Alicia James, Edwina Stacyk, Lisette Peterson, Shilo Stevens, Erin ?, Donna Moody, Tracy Kwan, Gretchen Cruz. I’m hoping to hear my name on Monday because it’s my birthday! That would be the best present!
Birthday plans: get kid to school, do chores, get take-out lunch, get other kid to school, do yard work, pick up littler child, wait to be served dinner, sink into the couch to watch tv. Pretty much a regular day except I don’t have to cook (probably.) I wish I were a kid so I could have a drive-by birthday party. In my case it would be a drive-through party, since I have a circular driveway, but that would be so fun! I could just sit in my lawn chair and wave at people, and they could throw presents at me. LOL! I may just sit beside Marine Drive and wave at people anyway. Yes I’m weird but who in their right mind wants to be normal?! Pfft.
Meanwhile, let’s play a birthday round of What The Hell IS That?! I recorded this sound at the cabin this summer (that’s your hint!) Throw out as many guesses as you want. Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday at midnight. All the correct answers will go into a pool and a winner will be drawn Friday morning. $50 will be e-transferred to the winner. FUN!
