$10K Will Buy You A Lot Of Cheap Trick On Vinyl
How many Cheap Trick records can you purchase with $10,000?
This is the last week for The Ultimate Stimulus Check and your chance to win up to $10,000 on 96.7 The Eagle. If you haven't played yet, well, what are you waiting for? It's so easy. Listen for us to announce the code words. We do it ten times a day Monday through Friday, 8:05 am until 5:05 pm. Once you get that, go to the Eagle app and click on "Win Cash." to enter. For more details, HERE. It doesn't matter if you do it once or all ten times each day. Of course, the more you do it, the better chance you'll have. Also, you can't win if you don't play.
It's time to do a little daydreaming, especially if you're at work. There are so many good ways to spend all that cash. You could pay bills. We all have plenty of those. How about a big vacation for the whole family? That sure would make an incredible Christmas.
Of course, I'm not eligible to win, so I'm going to do something fun with it. Rockford is the proud hometown of Rock n Roll Hall of Famers, Cheap Trick. I believe every citizen should own a copy of their iconic album "Live at Budokan" on vinyl for their music collection. There are many people in the Forest City who don't. I think that's just wrong, so I'm going to take my $10,000 and purchase as many copies as possible to help Rockfordians complete their record collections.
My first step is going to visit my friends, Skyler and Lauren, the owners of Culture Shock. It's a great place to do some shopping for vinyl. When I search their website, I found a copy HERE. It's the complete concert which I think you should go big or go home, so that's what I'm getting. The price is $38.99. I'm going to round up to $40 to cover taxes. Oh no, it's math time again. $10,000 / $40 = 250 copies. I feel good about that many more people being able to hear that album at home.
What would you spend the money on?
