Yep, they did give away another million

Yes, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire did give away another million dollars, and no cheating was involved! Well done!

EDIT: Hmmm, forgot to put in the winners name…well done Martin Flood!

I currently have plans, which are still in their formative stages, of starting a podcast which will be known as Samuel’s Persiflage. The plan at this stage is for an interview based program, with interviews on various subjects with various people.

The podcast will probably contain other things, and I have a potential jingle in mind at this time, but it probably won’t contain music other than that of my own creation due to licencing issues.

The long term plan (if this idea ever gets off the ground and becomes a success) is for it to have a sponsor to help cover costs (which would probably fix the music licencing issues) and/or make it available in a radio friendly format. At this stage there won’t be any set length for the podcast, although I’m aiming for approximately half an hour per episode…in future, a radio friendly format would force limits, but that is a long way down the track yet.

Millionaire Cheat?

Last week one of the tabloid newspapers of Australia (either Daily Telegraph or Herald Sun), in it’s partially reliable entertainment gossip section, said that Who Wants To Be A Millionaire have another million dollar prize winner, who will be screening tonight. But they also said that Channel 9 were investigating excessive coughing, with audience members commenting on the amount of coughing, and also on the way the contestant suspiciously managed to get answers from nowhere, in the same way the UK Who Wants To Be A Millionaire cheat did.

Anyway, the episode is going to air tonight, so accusations of cheating have probably been proven false. Do we have another millionaire this week? The gossip says yes, and the way they have had a long discussion about strategy on the show, and not a single question, and now gone to an ad break indicates to me that the answer is yes…but we’ll just have to wait and see!

John B1_B5 leads the 2CC Drive Show spelling competition

John B1_B5 is in the lead this afternoon with 8 correctly spelled words in 60 seconds.

There are four more places left in the spelling competition, and the rules are simple. Listen to Mike Welsh on 2CC and wait for the cue to call, there will be another one next hour and another one in the hour after that, and when you hear it, be one of the first two callers through on 62554444. The person who spells the most words correctly in their 60 seconds wins tickets to an exclusive 2CC movie screening (I think).

EDIT: Whoops, forgot that you can also win a holiday.
