Feed your Frankenstein!

If you know Jack, you know he’s hungry for love – and it’s pretty much always feeding time.

That’s why so many people confuse him for Alice Cooper: Not only do the two have an appetite that just can’t be fed, but they also each made their big screen debuts in what is hands-down the greatest movie of all-time: Wayne’s World.

(True, Jack’s scene ended up on the cutting room floor and Alice’s cameo became the stuff of legend’s. But … still. They’re both known for their shocking contributions to the world of rock ‘n’ roll.)

And now, to add to the long list of similarities, Jack is happy to announce that Alice Cooper is also destined to play a HUGE role in your summer plans.

It’s true – the superstar is bringing his theatrics to Northern Quest Resort & Casino on Sunday, June 18, and Jack is being forced to give up not only his tickets to the show but also the room he booked for the night. Apparently Cooper doesn’t appreciate his stalking behavior …

Starting on Monday, June 5, and running through Sunday, June 11, we’re going to qualify listeners to win the tickets and hotel stay for FREE. All you have to do is listen for the cue, and when you hear it text “JACK” to 406-848-1059.

That’s it. Just text us and you’ll be entered to win! There’s no limit on the amount of times you can qualify, so stay tuned in all day every day to increase your odds !

We’ll announce a winner on Monday, June 12.

In the meantime, here’s more details on the show – as well as a link to purchase tickets.

Best of luck, and happy June!

Who would have guessed wrestling would become Missoula’s hottest annual summer tradition?

Well, actually, Jack totally saw this coming.

(In fact, when Jack’s not setting trends he’s making bold predictions about trends to come. Just something to do in his free time. Of which he has plenty. But we digress …)

The point is, wrestling is so HOT in Missoula right now, and Jack wants to make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to get in on the action.

Follow THIS LINK for your chance to win a four-pack of tickets to Big Time Wrestling, which is happening June 9th at Ogren Park Allegiance Field

All you gotta do is tell us what YOUR wrestling moniker would be, and we’ll throw your name into the drawing. Double-entry for anyone who sends us a photo of their favorite wrestling pose!

We’ll collect entries all throughout the month of May and give away a four-pack every Friday!

If you wanna skip the fun and just get your tickets, they’re on sale now at the MSO Hub downtown or online at missoulaosprey.com. You can also get more details about the show there, including the line-up.

And please don’t smell the bunny …

How do you Easter?

If you’re like most Montanans, you’ll spend $53 – nearly all on food and candy, and about half of you will don your Sunday best and head to church.

But more so than anything, you’ll spend the holiday dying eggs and snapping the heads off solid chocolate bunnies.creepy-chocolate-murder

You most definitely won’t be eating Peeps.

Offers.com surveyed 1,000 respondents across the U.S. to identify holiday trends and then broke the data down by state. Hardly any of their findings were surprising – except the part where Oklahomans seem to enjoy smelling their chocolate bunnies before eating them (?!?!)


Here are the numbers that matter to you:

-70 percent of Americans will celebrate Easter in 2017

-The average American will spend $53, with 52.5 percent spending on food and 49.4 percent on candy (same thing, if you ask us).

-Reese’s eggs are the most popular Easter candy nationwide, with 30.3 percent support – but in Montana, Cadbury Eggs take the cake.

ylvvjL5-Montanans agree with America that solid chocolate bunnies are better than hollow or “filled” bunnies – but whereas 55 percent of the county eats the ears first, Montanans prefer to snap off the poor bunny’s head.
-Alaska, Delaware and North Dakota residents are apparently the only smart ones, preferring money in their Easter baskets. Montanans, like most others, said, “Screw the cash, we want some candy!” In West Virginia, apparently they prefer clothes in their baskets. But if you lived in West Virginia, you probably would too.
