Chris’ concert ticket quest continues!
Chris had to work today. His work schedule said he had to go in for 10 a.m. but he was talking to a guy from work yesterday who reminded him that another one of the guys, one with major seniority, always works at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays, so he called in and found out he should come in for noon.
Ok that’s fine. He got up this morning and spent time on the radio stations website, filling in quiz’s and things to earn points. Apparently if you have a lot of points at the Q107 website they might just give you tickets for the Thursday evening concert.
Then he got a call from work telling him that someone was sick, and would he come in and work from 3:30 to 11:30 p.m. That’s the first evening shift he’ll have done for his new job in the OR recovery room. Fine … he went back to working on getting points to win tickets.
In the meantime we had the radio on because the only way to get tickets for the concert is to win them. So we were waiting for any “we’ll take the 7th caller to win tickets!” announcements. Before Chris went to work we’d both tried calling in to the station twice on the phone and cell phone but all we got was busy signals.
Since Chris really really wants to go to this concert I’ve had the radio on since he left and I’ve been trying to win tickets every time they say we can try calling in.
I don’t play the radio very often when I’m sitting here by myself working on the computer. I should. I’m enjoying the music. I’m even singing along! It’s fun.
If everything goes well, Chris plans to go back to the radio station tomorrow after work to try to get tickets directly from Kim Mitchell himself. Kim told him that he might have to play his guitar on the air to get the tickets so this might be interesting.
Oh a few of you sounded like you have no idea who Kim Mitchell and or who the band Max Webster is … uhm you must have heard that song “Patio lanterns” before? “Go For a Soda”? “Rock n’ Roll Duty”? How about “High Class in Borrowed Shoes”? A Million Vacations? BattleScar? Blue River Liquor Shine? Chalkers? Check? Diamonds Diamonds? Gravity? Let go the Line? Oh come on! This is classic rock n’ roll!
Some lyrics …
A Million Vacations –
Friday Friday is a good time to shine / night sea journeys journeys to unwind
losing all survival signs / rerun movies taking all your time
Let go the line –
i see you there in your satin shirt / unfocused eyes on the ceiling
fluorescent lips on a painted face / i think i know what you’re feeling
this tightrope just begins to feel like home
when the wind comes rising from a desert storm
and all i know is that tonight i might / let go the line, let go the line
