Hi My Fun Fri-Yay Friends,
What’s KRTY you’re probably thinking. Trust me so was I. Well, it just so happens that my daughter Narnical, the pretty blonde…. oh yeah they are all pretty blondes (hahahaha), entered a contest to try and win Garth Brooks tickets for a concert that KRTY radio station was sponsoring. You had to sign up and be listening to the radio station so that in the off chance they called you, and could name the song they were playing at the time to win tickets.
KRTY is a commercial FM radio station licensed to Los Gatos, California, and serving the San Jose and Santa Clara Valley area. It is owned by Empire Broadcasting and it broadcasts a country music radio.
Enter a contest
Country Music at it’s best
Dance the night away
Easy pizzy right? But if you work full time as a school teacher, live in person these days, there’s a good chance you could be working and you can’t say “hold on a minute kids while I answer my phone”.
But who is Garth Brooks some of you are asking:
County music legend Garth Brooks will play in San Jose on Dec. 16, but instead of SAP Center, he’ll be playing the relatively tiny Club Rodeo. And you’ll have to be lucky to snag a pair of the 700 tickets, which can only be won through KRTY-FM radio contests.
Brooks called into KRTY’s morning show, hosted by Gary Scott Thomas and Julie Stevens, on Monday to make the announcement. He said KRTY General Manager Nate Deaton had called him to find out if he would bring one of his “Dive Bar Tour” shows — in which he’s been playing smaller venues — to Silicon Valley.
“I love getting to play at stadiums and arenas,” Brooks told Thomas and Stevens, “but there’s nothing like the dive bars. They’re the most fun.”
The trick for fans will be getting tickets to the 8 p.m. show in San Jose, where Brooks last performed in 2015. Like his other “Dive Bar” stops, tickets won’t be sold but will be given out through contests starting this Friday on KR
GOOD LUCK NARNICAL!
It just so happened that she was home at her computer when she saw the call come in from them and was scrambling because she didn’t have the radio on so she answered at the last possible second so she could stall. Her heart was beating so fast and she was so excited and nervous she could hardly speak. Not to mention she wasn’t listening to the station that minute. OH NO!!! What’s a girl to do. Didn’t I just say Google it in my post yesterday 🤣. Well, the pause was her getting on their website to find out what was just played.
The question is… Can she pull it off or not?
Find out here on the live recording of the call:
Whoo Hoo Narnical. Let the Good Times Roll!

And here’s how I remember him in the day. Funny thing is if you read my post on Monday you will see I posted at Fabletics and here is an add that opens his songs. I never plan these things but they sure do line up how they are supposed to appear.
Thanks so much for sharing your Friday night (or Saturday morning) with me have a great weekend!
Nice Post Cindy!
Thanks Srishti! 💖
Dear Cindy, country music promoter, and flute player?!!
Hahahahaha Joana! I just write where my travels and heart take me. Anything for my kids, I just loved her excitement and voice in this one!!! 💖🙏 Thanks my friend.🙏
You forgot the most important job in the world.
Yey, congrats to her for winning the ticket. I’m a lover of country music too. I love listening to Dolly Parton and Kenny Roger’s hits most of the time. Like there’s one Parton’s saddest hit “A letter to heaven” which I really love and you can find me crooning during the day amidst my hustles, hah. 💖💖 Garth Brooks’ Friends in Low Places is also a great hit for me. Thanks for sharing, and have a wonderful weekend too, dear. 💖💖
Thanks so much Lamittan!!! of fun and those 2 are the best. oh she is amazing. You are sooo funny. Yeah, that’s a great song. You’re welcome and thanks for tuning in.. you’ve just won a big hug of appreciation from Muah! Happy Satur-YAY!! 💖💖🤗🤗🤗🤗

Hahahahah I know right .. I was thinking the sam thing 🤣 She said it was “THE CONCERT OF THE YEAR”! HAHHAHAHAHA… ground hog day you know.. just tryin to salvage the day.. hahah 💖🙏🙏

Oops! I got in too big a hurry and pushed that doggone send button too soon! 😁😁😁I meant to mention that I pray Narnical wins!!!! She sounds like a winner anyway!
oh I soooo know how that goes. hahah. Awww that’s sweet. that should have been my title!!! She really is!! 💖💖🙏🙏🙏. Thanks dear.
You’re most welcome, Cindy! 💖 I noticed this morning that, last night, I didn’t see the audio of your daughter winning- it’s what I get for staying up too late and blogging and reading while sleepy! Tell her I said congratulations! 🏆💫🎉 And have fun at the show!!!
Omg my eyes were held together by toothpicks and my computer kept crashing.. Oh that’s sooo much. it was so cute.. she actually went Thursday and gave it a 10 plus! 💖
Ouch! Sounds like some serpent down below didn’t want you blogging, which only show that your voice and message are powerful! I’m so glad she had a great time, Cindy! God bless you both! 💖💐🌹🦋🙏
I know right!!! but got it out thanks my friend!!💖💖💖
Haha! Glad to know that the call was a successful one. Nice one, Cindy. 🙂
It was for sure and to hear her voice was the best concert for me.. home and listening. hahah. Thanks a lot 🙏💖
Oh wow Garth Brooks …now that’s a show I would love to see … damn .. time is moving on, and the old spring in my grand-father clock is unwinding … but I did get to “Go Jane Go” featuring one of my favourite singer/songwriters, in David Francey, when they were touring down-under in 2013 ..
I know! she said it was the best concert she’s ever been to.. maybe because it was up close and personal in a dive bar.. lol. It’s unwinding for all of us Ivor. Oh wos that is soooo cool. What a great memory. Thanks so much for you r visit! 💖
You’re welcome Cindy
Have a great day! 💖
Here’s Xavier Rudd .. the best performer I’ve seen
wow.. thanks ….never heard of him! I’ll check 💖💖👏
I think he toured America in 2018

Hi – I liked hearing the live call footage
and the Garth song “I’ve got friends” brought me back to the early 1990s (everyone loved that song) and music has such a way to ignite episodic memories –
Happy Sunday Cindy
