For the 9th time, here’s how it works:
– Any members of the RR Community, old & new (Including quitters, splitters & fence sitters), can join in by selecting their 3 favourite songs of 2016 (or very late 2015) & rank them. New songs from the year preferred, rather than a 2016 deluxe reissue from back-in-the-day. In short, our mutated version of John Peel’s famous end of year listener selected favourites.
– Send your secret ballot, along with mp3’s or mp3 links to email@example.com. We could Spotify the thing, but historically folks seem to want to lay their hands on some mp3’s. One at time seems to work best if sending mp3 files by e-mail.
Within a few days to a week, you should get confirmation back that your choices are entered. If someone has beaten you to something you can make a replacement pick – vote early to make your 1st picks stick (& help me avoid a last minute Xmas rush).
Once we’re done bouncing e-mails, results will be playlisted on the ‘Spill, sometime(s) before Christmas. Let me know in comments what days & times will work best for most of you. It would be nice to have some shared listening time together – something we’ve gotten worse at in recent years (although it is a busy time of year).
Not on Spotty:
Who’s going to get away with it? Who needs to be sent home in disgrace? Save one. Boot one. Pick a new one.
Who wins the gold? Who are you rooting for? Who fails the pee test?
So what have we have we all found to listen to lately?
All aboard! Chew over which choo-choo to choose. Who needs to leave the station? Remove one, try to save one, add one.
Let me know if there any particular themes you want to revisit? Also if anyone wants to take a turn hosting this thing each week.
Not on Spotty:
Sorry, overslept. Here’s another Dorian list from the archives. Which are dreamy? Which are nightmares? You know what to do. I’m going back to bed.
Ahoy Mateys. Thanks to Ableseaman Severin for hoisting up the yardarm last week [Ok enough pirate talk]. This week we go back to another early Dorian mix: moist, soggy or wet?
How To Play:
In any order, at any time between now & Thursday evening. Arrr [Sorry, it’s hard to stop].
