WorkDay Distraction: Free Tickets rock Schaghticoke
Another week, another Q103 WorkDay Distraction! This week, I had some awesome tickets to go see In This Moment with special guests Motionless in White April 19th at the Palace Theatre! I arrived at the station this morning, anxiously awaiting to find out who our winner would be. There's honestly nothing I love more than giving the gift of live music, and I get far too excited for each week to be able to give a hard working rock fan a chance to see a live concert.
As I was reading through the winning nomination, I saw that I would be driving up to Schaghticoke to hand over a pair of tickets to our lucky winner. What I didn't expect to find when I got to the area- a shopping center right across from the fair grounds- was an AMAZING slew of Q103 listeners and devoted rock fans. Our lucky winner actually wasn't at work today (so I was unable to get a photo with him to post) however we were able to reach him via telephone so that he didn't miss out. In the meantime, my adventure out of Albany found me in conversation with some true die hard rock fans and radio listeners, and it made my day to be able to get a chance to talk rock. Initially, I didn't exactly know which store our winner worked in at the shopping center, so I went into a few asking for him, until I finally found the right one. I got to interact with a bunch of people, and ended it with a great conversation with a Q-listener, Gretchen, about how much rock lovers rock (no pun intended). Overall, despite not being able to get to catch our winner in person, I still had an amazing day talking to some Q103 fans, and I can't wait to see what next week brings! We've got some Seether tickets to hand out, so make sure that you nominate your hard working coworkers or self!
