i want to win concert tickets

who are these lucky people who win tickets from radio stations?  the only time i’ve won concert tickets was in college when my friend, who worked at the radio station, and i schemed for me to win the tickets.  (in our defense, we went to a small college and there were few listeners at that late hour.)

if you’ve ever seen sharon jones and the dap-kings, you know why i want to win the fifth row and better seats that the current is offering this week.  (the concert is dec. 2 at pantages theater.)  sharon jones is a performer.  she has personality.  she has energy.  she has that quality that makes you hope that you’ll get on stage and dance with her, even if maybe “that’s not your thing.”

two more days to try to win tickets, and in the probability that i won’t, i will buy mine.  but they’ll be a little less magical than had i won them by being, for the first time ever, that elusive tenth caller.

    I didn’t know Sharon Jones was gonna be here again! I’m going to have to start calling in, too! (Just kidding, I won’t do that!)

    I once won tickets to a Saint Paul Saints game when I was 10 from Radio AAHS, but I never went to it.

    The only thing I ever won from the radio was also from Radio AAHS, and that was simply a song that I requested was played on the radio. I believe it was from the Animaniacs.

    Come to think of it, the Current didn’t even award me with the song I requested. Fucking Mark Wheat.

    I won "premium seating" at spark24 from CityPages.com. And then I found out that the concert was free and the seating was open. (It was still a really kickass show)
