Fireworks show returns to Southgate Mall

You can have your Christmases and Thanksgivings and all those other high-pressure holidays.

But when it comes to our favorite annual celebration, Jack takes the Fourth of July without hesitation.

Fireworks-still-a-fizzleThink about it: There’s no requirement for gift-giving, the weather is usually nice, you can spend it with whoever you want, and it’s a holiday about patriotism. Oh yeah, and there’s the whole fireworks thing.

This year, Jack’s doubling down on his excitement because after a two-year hiatus the largest fireworks display on this side of the state is returning. We’re talking about the big explosions-filled, Americana music fest that goes down in the parking lot of Southgate Mall.

According to a mall’s Facebook post, the fireworks event is happening again this year after taking the last two years off. Not many details have been unveiled about “4th Fest” other than that it’s happening from 7-11 pm at the mall on Wednesday, July 4th. We assume more details will be coming soon.

Truth be told, despite being a (mostly) lifelong Missoula resident, we’ve only actually partaken in the festivities at the mall one time. That’s because the best thing about the show – and about living in the Missoula Valley – is that you can pretty much enjoy it from anywhere. Pick a mountain, a hill, a rooftop, bring a blanket and your own playlist and enjoy the show.

Because this is America, and while Jack’s always looking for a great excuse to celebrate there really is no better reason than love of country. And pretty explosions in the sky.

All in all you’re just another brick in the … wallaby?

Jack FM Missoula is excited to send a few lucky listeners to see the Australian Pink Floyd Show LIVE at Northern Quest Resort & Casino on Thursday, Sept. 13!

Formed in 1988 and having sold over 4 million tickets in 35 countries, Australian Pink Floyd is hailed as one of the leading concert performances currently operating.

The band began its adventure as part of a wave of Australian tribute bands and broke into the international scene with their performance at the Pink Floyd fan convention in 1993. Since then, they’ve been playing bigger and more prestigious venues across the world – as well as having released several live concert DVDs and CDs.

Like the best tribute shows, Australian Pink Floyd isn’t just about “covering” your favorite Floyd tunes; they put all their energy into recreating the look, feel and sound of the classic rock band’s world tours – including familiar visual aids! Inflatable kangaroo, anyone?

Jack FM has scored three pairs of tickets and we’ll be giving them away for FREE every Friday through June 22!

See Aussie Floyd for free, matey!
Take a survey; win $1,000!

How would you like to kick off the summer season with an extra $1,000?

The national Jack FM network is hosting its annual Radio Music Test starting this Friday, April 20th, and everyone who participates will be included in a drawing for a $1,000 giveaway!

Seriously – no gimmicks, no backdoor multi-level marketing schemes, no bait-and-switch. You know how big companies like to say “Our research shows …” and leave you wondering where they got the information? It’s through market surveys like this one, and the cash giveaway is the best way they can incentive you to share your thoughts and opinions!

You matter. But more importantly, cash matters.

So please, click this link, take the Radio Music Test, and then if you win we’ll be happy to join you for a sandwich. Or steak. Or shopping spree.

Last fall we asked you to send us your bad tattoos, and boy did you deliver!

We learned about one woman’s dragon tat that ended up looking like a beheaded fish, saw an example of some fine prison art – that wasn’t actually done in prison, and laughed a little at the woman who got her son’s name and date of birth on her arm, only to realize after the fact that the date was wrong!

In fact, we were so impressed that we’ve decided to do it again.

Yep, starting April 2nd send us a photo or description of your bad tattoo and how you’d like to cover it up, and we’ll give away a $100 gift card to The Steel Paintbrush in Hamilton every Friday through the end of the month.

And to really bolster the prize, we’ll throw in an extra $75 for the final Friday (April 27th). That one will go to the listener with the most unique tat idea.

Follow THIS LINK or click the button below to register for free. And in the meantime, head on over to The Steel Paintbrush’s Facebook page to learn all about their skills and services.

Good luck, and happy freakin’ spring from 105.9 Jack FM and The Steel Paintbrush!
