Sunday Jan 9
Today I was out doing my tribute to Betty White. After four hours sitting outside, I’m frozen. My hands are stiff so please forgive any typos. And remember to donate $5 to an animal charity on January 17th for the #BettyWhiteChallenge.
It turns out WAKZ did NOT open my gift before leaving for their Xmas holidays, nor did they open it the first day back. They finally opened the present Wednesday after their show so when I called on Friday, I heard they really appreciated the book. Sweet!
My next project: Clay and Karen have an upcoming anniversary – 25 years on JR! WOW! In this business that is incredible! I’d like to do something special for them so if you have any stories about them (maybe you met them or they had a segment that really affected you or they made you laugh out loud or you just want to tell them how much you love them) please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send pictures – were you at one of their lounge parties or at Merritt Mountain Music Fest jams or whatever? – I’d love to include them in my gift (with your permission and full photo credit!) In the past 25 years they have met thousands of listeners so surely there are some pics and stories to be found. Please send them to me asap so I can get the gift started. Contributors will receive a free copy of the final gift.
Speaking of JR, they start us off this week with a $5000 contest. With this one you have to listen for a code word (given multiple times throughout the day) and enter it on the JR app. You must have the app to play this game! You only enter the code word once per day, they just say it multiple times because they don’t want you to miss it. There will be 21 entries if you get all the code words, and at the end of the month they will award one person the $5000. I have the app but it’s in the cloud so I guess I’ll be downloading it this week. Can’t win if I don’t play!
I just checked out the entries for CFOX’s $10,000 movie contest HERE. There are only three entries so far, but there are actually only two available to watch – for the third one they put in the wrong link and it replays movie #2. But I gotta tell ya, movie #2 is awesome!! It literally brought a tear to my eye. I love it! I’m not sure I could do better than that so I may not even try…
CFOX is also playing Screen or Green, aka Draw or Blah: you can get into the draw for a big screen tv or you can take your chances on the envelope (which 75% of the time will have $5 in it.) We’ve played this game before – you listen to see if the $500 was in the envelope and if it wasn’t in any of the envelopes by 5pm, there’s a good chance it will be in the final envelope. Sometimes they used to do TWO big cash payouts in one day, so it may be worth taking a chance on the envelope. On the other hand, some days there wasn’t a big cash prize at all so… it’s a gamble!
Move wants to pay your holiday bills – how nice! Go sign up HERE, then listen at 7am, 8am and 4pm. If they call your name you have 10 minutes to call them back. They will pay any bill up to $500.
Virgin will be destroying somebody’s debt but that somebody could live in any of these places: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario or Quebec. You will be listening for a code word six times per day, then entering it online HERE. Each day they will be awarding $1000 to one entrant, and on Feb 21st they will award someone $100,000. Your odds of winning aren’t great for either – think of all the entries they will get with 6 provinces entering 6 times per day. That’s a whole bunch of entries but that’s a whole bunch of money so you may as well try!
Rock 101 is playing Bullseye again. Remember this? Willy’s thinking of a number between 1 and 100. Two contestants will take turns guessing numbers while Willy tells them if it’s higher or lower. The person who guesses it will be in the draw for the $20,000 on February 22nd. This contest is pre-recorded many days before you hear it playing so I won’t bother putting it into the schedule, but if you want to play just go enter HERE. Willy calls players weekdays between 6am and 9am so take your phone off mute during those hours if you’re hoping to play.
