    If this started today, it might have something to do with the 99.1 hits fm contest. The 99th caller wins 10,000 dollars. a few times today when I tried to call someone, all I would get was dead air. Almost as bad as when Rex goudie was on Canadian idol.

    Why no mention of the contest on the radio, I won't mention the station. There was an internal e-mail at Eastern Health asking staff to refrain and cease in calling the radio contest because it was crashing all the phone lines. I think the radio station in question needs to appologize for this, could have resulted in an avoidable tragedy.
