mme boyer grade 3

Earlier today Ecole Crescentview School celebrated "Breakfast In The Classroom" where they learned about food and where it comes from locally.  We decided to stop by to ask Mme. Boyer's grade 3 class some questions regarding their favorite food and who's the best cook at home!

Get your Nickelback!

get your nickelback

Nickelback kicks off the Canadian leg of their No Fixed Address Tour in Winnipeg on March 8th at the MTS Centre with special guests Pretty Reckless and you could be there! Starting Monday, play Get your Nickelback with Mix 96! In this on-air contest, you'll have to pick the cheapest item out of 3 to guarantee at least a nickel back in change. 


For example:

If you have a toonie to spend – which one of these items will leave you a nickel back?

A brick of philly cream cheese, a 5lb bag of red potatoes or a 2L of pepsi?

A 2L pepsi will leave you a nickel back. 



Guess correctly and you qualify into our grand prize draw to see Nickelback! We have two pairs of tickets up for grabs in the grand prize draw Friday morning. Each qualifier will also instantly win their choice of two tickets to the upcoming Mid Canada Boat Show (Mar 5 to 8) or the Manitoba RV/Camping Show (Mar 13-15) both at the Convention Centre in Winnipeg.

Don't Stop Believing For Tickets To Journey



Is Pearl a secret agent?  Does Cody hate the Terriers?  Can Travis run 20 steps without being winded?  Obviously none of those are true, and if you guessed those right it might just mean beat the box office tickets for Journey!  They'll be performing on Monday July 6th at the MTS Centre and Mix 96 with LIVE NATION wants to make sure you're there! Tickets go on sale Friday February 27th at 10 AM. 

Tune in Wednesday and Thursday this week for your cue to call at 204-239-2965 and you'll have a chance to guess whether the far fetched story we've told on-air is true or completely made-up.  Guess right and you qualify for your shot to see Journey and win one of two sets of tickets Friday morning. Each qualifier will also instantly win their choice of two tickets to the upcoming Mid Canada Boat Show (Mar 5 to 8) or the Manitoba RV/Camping Show (Mar 13-15) both at the Convention Centre in Winnipeg.


Good luck, and don't forget to brush up on your believe it or not stories!
