Sunday Jan 10
Well? How many CFOX code words did you collect and enter? I didn’t enter a single one because I’m entering the movie contest instead, but if you’re in Monday morning’s draw, I wish you all the luck. The Jeff O’Neil show is back from vacation in the morning and they will announce the winner.
Also happening Monday morning: Sonia is back at Kiss! She is returning from maternity leave and TJ is taking a well-earned vacation. Then she’ll be popping back up in the afternoons with Kiah – let the shenanigans begin! In a few weeks, that is.
Beat Your Bills starts tomorrow on Virgin. Their website’s official rules said it opened for entries on the 4th and they would start calling names on the 8th, but fear not – that date was wrong. They start calling names tomorrow. If you haven’t entered your bill yet, go do it HERE. Then listen at 7:10, 8:10, 11:10 and 3:10 for your name – if you hear it, you have 15 minutes to call them back.
JR has something that I hate – listen for three songs with “Happy” in their title and text “Happy” and your full name to be in the draw for $2021. The text line will only be valid during the LAST happy song. I’m not going to bother with this one but if YOU are playing, listen for songs like Happy Trails by Roy Rogers, If It Makes You Happy by Sheryl Crow, Happy Together by The Turtles, Happy by Pharrell, or Don’t Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin.
JR is also giving away tickets to a virtual concert. Jojo Mason, Shawn Austin, and Kristin Carter will be playing at The Commodore on Thursday the 14th. That’s this week so if you’re interested, go enter HERE quickly – the contest may end soon!
The Breeze is back to doing Artist Of The Day, but this time the prize is $500! Five hundred!! Listen at 8am to hear who the artist of the day is, then text them every time you hear a song by that artist. They will announce the daily winner the next morning. Fun!
Also fun: Simone’s Book Club. Every month they will choose a book to discuss, and if you read it you could win a Book Club prize pack (I am thinking candles and reading socks, but I don’t know!) This month’s book sounds really good and I might just have to go read it. More details HERE.
(Speaking of books, I finally uploaded the finished copy of my new book. It was two years in the making and I’m thrilled to have it finally finished and available in paperback and on Kindle! Go buy it on Amazon.ca here: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08QLMT6XW or you can find it on Amazon.com here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08QLMT6XW. Yes that’s a shameless plug but this book means a lot to me and I want the world to know it!)
Rock 101 isn’t doing much right now, but you *could* win pizza for a year by entering HERE. And by “pizza for a year” they mean “one XL pizza per month.”
CFOX also has this pizza contest, except they get to give away that prize EVERY FRIDAY UNTIL AUGUST! WTF?! They will award that prize to whoever whenever the mood strikes them so if you’re going to call them, make it good!
QMFM and Peak are quiet. Not much going on over there at the moment. Maybe they’ve got something fun brewing…
And too bad Jack didn’t drum up a fun contest to get people to listen to Jack now that Drex is there. They are a pretty decent morning show! Of course, I already have favourite morning shows, but if they are away, I will listen to these guys.
Speaking of favourite morning shows, I sent Willy a Xmas present to their office. Of course, they had left for vacation before it got there, so they got the package when they got back in January. I made them a small photo book on Shutterfly with pictures of them (which I scrounged off their Insta) to celebrate their 7 years together. I made a copy for each of them – Willy, Alece, Kim and Zahir. I thought it would be a nice memento, something they can look at when they’re 90 and remember they meant something special to a lot of people. And also remember how much fun they had – they really have a good time over there! I’ll make them another one when they retire (which is hopefully never, but this business is so fickle they could be gone overnight!)
