96.9 JACK’s Big Football Party at River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, B.C. – Sunday, February 7th, 2016
The fourth ever B.C. Family Day continues to defy odds by not lining up with Alberta, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. Prince Edward Island and Manitoba also have their non-national statuary holiday on the third Monday of February. What’s better than having a holiday after the Super Bowl? Americans dream of a day that that can happen; British Columbians get to experience it for themselves, and the number of free events taking place in the Lower Mainland.
Football can be a divisive issue in families. On the one hand, you can have intrafamilial rivalries where say Mom likes the pant stylings of Michael Hoomanawanui of the New Orleans Saints while Dad enjoys lacrosse.
On the other hand you can have families with Football widows and widowers where the addiction to all things NFL takes up huge blocks of time or one partner, rendering the other partner “widowed” and the dog humiliated by the use of phrase “What a cute widdow doggie” in public.
But the one thing that can bring Families and Football together is a themed radio program such as “Pour Some 80s on Me” Sunday Morning at 10 and Sunday evening at 10 on 96.9 JACK. Tunes featuring past performers at Superbowl and bands that have family member in ‘em. Together at last.

Do you have people telling you to cheer up all the time? Do people think you look angry when you’re not? You might have Resting B**** Face. But you’re not alone! Eloquent Heather called the show to tell us about her dealings with RBF.
We gave a ride to a random stranger in exchange for an interview.. so they told us about the time they sharted.
