Aloha Friday - Radio Station Contests


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.

Have you ever won anything from a radio station?

I am one of those that has been lucky enough to win from a radio station a total of 5 times in my life. When I was in elementary and middle school I won $100 twice and I also won tickets to go see Luther Vandross in concert, and Sinbad opened for Luther Vandross. It was pretty fun for me because I was only 12 and I had to go with my grandma. She enjoyed the music but thought that Sinbad was horrible. I think I was just ecstatic that I won something - even if it included Sinbad.

When I was 20 or 21, something like that I can't remember, I won tickets to a concert that had several bands playing. It was one put on by the station. I wish I could remember who I saw but I honestly have no idea. I just remember that it wasn't anyone that I was really into and I am pretty sure that Oscar and I were some of the oldest people there. I think the stars of the concert were loved by tweens so we were a little out of the loop.

Then, just the other day I won a $50 gift card to a high end sushi restaurant and get this - tickets to go see Cindi Lauper next week at the Woodland Park Zoo! I love Cindi Lauper and all but I wouldn't pay to see her perform or anything. I am taking my best friend with me because I need someone to go people watching with. Plus if its really lame we can hang out and go do something else so the night wouldn't be a total waste.

So, I guess you could say that I am a pretty lucky gal when it comes to these things. Too bad I can't get on game shows. Now that would be something!!!

I have - twice. But I was much younger. I'm not in the car during the times that they do it anymore so I haven't called in in forever!
Yes, I have - one lucky time when I won 2 contests from radio stations: a limo ride and lunch for the office with the hosts and then a $50 gift card to get lunch for the office. My office mates were very happy with me that year.
