On May 7, 2015 I will be introducing a new feature and running contest to my show called “Trivia for Tunes.” During the sixth talk break in my show (around 8:40 pm Eastern) I will give you a trivia question dealing with a Hall of Fame inductee. The first person to PRIVATE MESSAGE me in IRC with the correct answer will get a shout-out at the talk break following their answer. During my last show in August, I will draw a name from all the winners and that person will get to program an entire show of their choice of music from my full library of over 125,000 songs. If you pick a song that I don’t have, I’ll do my best to get it for your show! I will start the contest over in September, drawing a new winner during the last show of December, and so on every four months for three chances to win a shot at programming a show every calendar year!

Here are the rules.

1. I will accept answers ONLY in private message in IRC. Messages sent in-game or publicly in the IRC channel will be disregarded.

2. If a question is not answered by the end of my show, I will post the question in its own thread in my forum. First person to respond in the forum with the correct answer gets their name in the drawing for the week.

3. Using a web search to find the answer is perfectly acceptable and encouraged!

4. An individual can win the weekly contest multiple times during a four month drawing period. Each win increases your chances in the drawing!

5. An individual can win the drawing only once in a twelve month period.

6. Because my show runs during prime time, I reserve the right to review the drawing winner’s chosen playlist for excessive examples of explicit language and questionable content prior to airplay. If songs are deemed inappropriate for a prime time show, I will work with the drawing winner to air an acceptable substitute.

Tonight I announced that, after much deliberation, I am going to put the Trivia for Tunes contest on hold for the next four months. As of this writing I now owe three shows to Xyzandra, Lyla, and Mrwrk, and I wasn't relishing the thought of working on being four shows in the hole. So, for the next four months, I will be concentrating on getting the shows I owe on the radio so we can start the contest again in January, if there's still listener interest.

I want to thank everyone that's participated in this segment of my show over the past 16 months. I've truly enjoyed bringing you these weekly snippets of trivia and I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have.

We'll see where we are four months from now. I'd really like to bring this segment back once my backlog of winners is taken care of.

Kitten Victory! *joysplodes*

(Given her bouts of mania about this contest, you have some idea how excited she is about this. I am just as stoked as my fuzzy alter ego. Because I am pretty obsessive, I have a list picked out tenatively already. We will be in touch. Just as soon as Mrwrk reassembles her atoms. And once I am home with access to my excel sheet)
