SRC Reading Challenge

End of Summer Party - Tour of 94.3/98.3/103.1/1100AM Radio Station

I just came back from the end of Summer Reading Party and I wanted to share how it was. Eight girls joined me for delicious pizza at Bellagio's Pizza. After we filled up, we walked across the Airport Plaza Shopping Center for a radio station tour. There are four stations that operate out of this Plaza.

94.3 (94X), 98.3 (KJOY), 103.1 (B103), and 1100 AM all are aired out of this one building. The Promotions Manager Frank gave us a full tour of the stations, including a peek into a studio to see exactly how a radio station was run. We learned about the many jobs one can have working in a radio station and got to see all the offices and studios. It was a great tour and I want to thank Frank for having us and showing us around.

Pottermore

When J.K.Rowling’s new website launched a few weeks back, the press release promised that a limited number of fans would be granted early access to the site.

Pottermore isn’t due to launch until October, but a contest was started on Sunday to let people win that early access.

The contest is called Find The Magic Quill, and it’s fairly simple. A new trivia question will be posted every day this week on Pottermore, and the first few who find the answer and append it to the website address quill.pottermore.com/ will get a chance to sign up for Pottermore.

The triva questions are posted once a day but they’re not posted at the same time everyday.

Check out the site now: Pottermore
