The Q!'s Rock Door

The easiest radio contest on the west coast — The Q!'s Rock Door — is going up on the hoist.

After going up on the hoist this summer, the new and improved Rock Door has returned to The Q! Morning show wider, funner, easier and betterer than ever before.

The song behind the Rock Door will change — and be solved — every day. We'll keep taking callers until someone gets it right, and the lucky solver will win one of our rotating prizes of questionable value.

Listen weekdays at 7:50 am with Ed Bain & The Q Morning Show, and be the right caller to 250-475-1003 to play.

It's all brought to you by Coastal Heat Pumps...feel comfortable, feel juuuust right.
