The greatest riffs

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

rocklogo_smaller

We’re talking the real thing here… those guitar riffs that capture your heart and make you loyal to a band or a song without a second thought.

BBC 2 recently did a massive poll asking what the greatest guitar riffs of all time were… the winner? Led Zeppelin. Page was pretty stoked to win the title saying:

“I wanted a riff that really moved, that people would really get, and would bring a smile to their faces, but when I played it with the band, it really went into overdrive … there was this intent to have this riff and the movement of it, so it was menacing as well as quite sort of caressing.”

Here is the rest of the list…love #2

Top 10 Guitar Riffs Of All Time

01 – Whole Lotta Love – Led Zeppelin
02 – Sweet Child O’ Mine – Guns N’ Roses
03 – Back In Black – AC/DC
04 – Smoke On The Water – Deep Purple
05 – Layla – Derek And The Dominoes
06 – How Soon Is Now? – The Smiths
07 – Down Down – Status Quo
08 – Money For Nothing – Dire Straits
09 – You Really Got Me – The Kinks
10 – Money – Pink Floyd

Yes it looks like Tim Horton’s and Burger King are going to merge, making it the third biggest fast food franchise in the world. Don’t worry, it looks like Burger King will be moving to Canada (tax saving purposes)

Have you tried the new dark roast at Tims? It’s really good. So is this promo commercial:

Kids.

Main topic today is why kids are the way they are… for example, how old is too old to live at home?(health reasons aside)

Also doesn’t it seem like there are a lot of 20 year olds that don’t have their drivers license yet?

According to listeners- unless you’re in school, it’s time to rent up or get your own place. As far as driving goes… well there aren’t any excuses; hit the pavement!

Your opinion matters to us, so give it: 780 539 9797

Have an excellent weekend!

Internet firsts

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

I came across a website that had a bunch of internet firsts on it.

I found it hilarious to find out that the first thing ever sold on EBay was a broken laser pointer… sold in 1995 to a guy who collected broken laser pointers, lol. He bought it for 1995.

Which got me thinking about what the first thing I bought on the internet… I’m pretty sure it was a way too expensive hockey picture, or shirt I couldn’t find in Canada. I actually haven’t had any problems ordering things online… even tho there are some that swear they never would.

What’s the first thing you bought on the internet? Have you had any problems? We’d love to hear them: 780 539 9797

Also, we are giving away Sonic Boom tickets this morning… if you hear the back to school bell at any point, call us, if you’re #7 consider them yours.

Remember when that old tin screen door used to clip the back of your heel when coming inside for a freezie? Maybe not the best memory in itself, but there are certain things you likely miss about Summer. We want to hear about them this morning, as we enjoy the last few weeks. 780 539 9797.

Also, because the season is winding down and back to school schedules start September 2nd, Kevin and I want to see you enjoy one last hurrah in Edmonton, at Sonic Boom. This week we are giving you tickets… we will play a back to school bell during the morning show 530a-10a, when you hear that bell, and are the 7th caller thru, you will get a pair of tickets to see Jack White at Sonic Boom (get more info and tickets here) September long weekend.

Also we’ll be giving hints as to when we will play the bell on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so make sure to follow us!

Have a great week!

Kevin and I will be playing the ‘edumacaTion’ contest after 8 this morning, for your chance at some relief from back to school costs with a $50 gift card to Giant Tiger. 780 539 9797

In the mean time, think about this for a little…

Have you ever had anything stolen from you, and returned a while later? Like the new story from in town where a dog was reunited with it’s owner in Red Deer… after being reported stolen. The dog was FOUND in South Bear Creek, taken to the pound and scanned. Crazy.

So two things: Don’t steal dogs, and make sure to get yours micro chipped

The more you know

Posted on by Cliff Kriz

(You may have to scroll through the videos until you find the fruit one) This may help you this summer, especially if you’re buying all this wonderful, ripe, fruit we have

Personally I don’t mind cutting the mini watermelons BUT I love the straw trick for the berries and I have to add, pomegranates suck, trick or not. So hard to get those juicy nuggets.
