50 by 10 challenge

Make your Mama proud with the $50 by 5/10 challenge!

Our local businesses are a part of what makes our community so special. When you spend money locally, you make a big difference in the lives of folks right here in our community. Every purchase you make with a local vendor keeps more money locally. When you ‘vote’ with your dollars those dollars make a difference, in helping a local business hire more employees, investing in our communities future. Small businesses donate more to charity events and fundraisers, I mean c’mon Jeff Bezos sure isn’t going to sponsor your kids ball team. If only half of our 70,000 residents spent $50 locally, we’d pump $1.75 million back into our local economy!

To celebrate our local businesses we’ve launched 50 to 10! As a locally owned and small business ourselves we are challenging our listeners to spend $50 locally by May 10th to help support small business and in turn help our community.

Social Distancing in style!

Let’s be real, Montana has been socially distancing since it was the “cool”and “right”thing to do. Currently millions of Americans are staying home to flatten the curve and protect our communities most vulnerable from the novel coronavirus. That spirit of helping has gone into overdrive with community members stepping up to volunteer and donate to our local food banks, helping quarantined neighbors and shopping locally online.

In that spirit of helping, Jack FM 105.9 Missoula joins all Jack FM partners across the nation in the “Socially Distant” tshirt sale with proceeds donated to Feeding Americas Covid-19 fund.

About Korn

Earlier this year KORN shook the world with the release of their acclaimed new album THE NOTHING. The GRAMMY® Award-winning group’s latest effort is highlighted by singles “Can You Hear Me,” Cold,” and “You’ll Never Find Me,” the latter of which is joined by an official music video.  “It continues KORN’s mission of probing the hidden corners and harsh realities of life within a shroud discordant darkness,” declared Noisey with The FADER adding, “KORN have never shied away from innovation… the icons have always looked forward.”  Los Angeles Times applauded the “…deep and potent performances from the band, evoking their ever-present rage but also feelings of loss and isolation,” while NME affirmed, “This urgent and important record will ensure the veterans don’t get lost in the shuffle.”  Furthermore, KORN recently announced the imminent arrival of their groundbreaking dramatized anthology podcast series, ‘The Nothing,’ which was written and created by Adam Mason and Simon Boyes with KORN. ‘The Nothing,’ a six-part dramatized series, tells the story of journalist Matt Singer who travels to the small town of Wellden, Kansas to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a teenage girl.  He soon discovers not everything is as it seems in the rural community, and finds himself heading into his own heart of darkness.  Produced by Elizabeth Mason and directed by Adam Mason (Blood River, The Devil’s Chair), ‘The Nothing’ stars Keir O’Donnell (Wedding Crashers, Fargo, Legion), Darri Ingolfsson (Dexter, Black Antenna) and Mikayla S. Campbell.

About BONES UK
BONES UK consists of vocalist Rosie Bones and guitarist Carmen Vandenberg. Their self-titled debut album is out now via Sumerian Records. The group confronts everything from the beauty industrial complex to toxic masculinity to music-scene sexism, embedding each track with choruses primed for passionate shouting-along. True to the L.A.-based band’s anti-conformist spirit, BONES UK unfolds with an entirely uncontainable sound, a riff-heavy collision of rock-and-roll and rough-edged electronic music. After recruiting Filippo (a former classmate of Carmen’s at The Academy of Contemporary Music in Surrey), BONES UK began pushing toward the heady complexity that now defines their music. Joined onstage by their drummer Heavy, BONES UK now see their live set as the ideal medium for their ever-expanding message, a vehicle for both catharsis and transformation.

 

KORN + Breaking Benjamin- Be My Valentine!
Hunters Dream Package Giveaway

The best part isn’t the time outdoors, though that’s certainly near the top of the list.

No, the best part about hunting, at least according to Jack, is all the tasty eating that comes for the six to nine months following.

Deer, elk and more deer – that sounds like breakfast, lunch and dinner to Jack.

This fall, Jack is absolutely delighted to offer up a sweet hunter’s package that honors not just the sport – but the eating part, too. Not one but TWO loyal Jackheads will be walking away this month with a $500 gift certificate to Snowy Mountain Rifles plus a chest freezer from Fred’s Appliance.

Snowy Mountain Rifles has been operating in Hamilton for years, but last year they expanded to a new store in Missoula out on Stockard Road. At either location, though, you’re going to enjoy great, personal customer service and a terrific selection of rifles, accessories, camo clothing and other gear, as well as services like gunsmithing and cerakoting.

Whether your game is hunting elk in the high country or shooting steel, Snowy Mountain can hook you up with extreme power, extreme range and extreme accuracy.

And Fred’s Appliance is pretty much a local legend at this point. Need a washer and dryer? Fred’s. New kitchen appliances? Fred’s. They offer big box store prices without being a big box store. They’re local, they’re personable, and they’ll take care of you.

So now the big question … how do you win?

Well, there are two ways. Starting Monday, Sept. 16th, listen out for the elk call on 105.9 Jack FM, and when you hear it just text the word “JACK” to 406-848-1059 … OR … starting that same day you can register in person out at Snowy Mountain Rifles. They’re located at 394 Old Corvalis Road in Hamilton, talk to Greg, he’ll help you out! They’re open 9-6 every weekday and they’ll be glad to get you all signed up.

Jack will draw two winners – the first on Oct 4th and the second on Oct 25th.

Best of luck to ya. And if you do manage to get something tasty in that there freezer, don’t forget who sent ya …
