Throwback Thursday Features ‘Soul’ vs. the ‘Machine’
If you enjoy the music on MY105.3, I'm going to assume that you really enjoy (more specifically) the music we play from the 80s and 90s. If that assumption is true, then I should also assume that you especially enjoy our weekly Throwback Thursday competition.
How Our Throwback Thursday Competition Works
Each Thursday morning, Liberty and I choose an old-school song, something from the 80s or 90s. The goal is to get the most votes for your song, so in order to do that, we both plead our cases around 7:35am. After that, the outcome is out of our hands - you determine the winner by voting on Facebook, AppChat, or on the phone. We play the winning song on the air at 8:10am.
There is one caveat when it comes to choosing our songs. The previous week's winner gets to choose whatever song their little heart desires. The previous week's loser, however, forfeits the right to choose a song and must ask our listeners for help. The loser then picks a song from all those that get suggested.
This Week's Competition
If you look through the articles from the past few Throwback Thursdays, you will see a common theme - that I have been the loser. That trend, sadly, continued this week. In honor of De La Soul founding member Trugoy the Dove, who passed away this week, I went with the group's biggest hit "Me, Myself and I." As for Liberty, riding a 3-week winning streak, she chose the first big hit from Gloria Estefan and her band Miami Sound Machine..."Conga."
It didn't take long to realize that De La Soul was not going to get enough votes and that I was going to lose for the fourth week in a row.
This Week's Loser
This Week's Winner
Be sure to listen next Thursday at 7:35am when we plead our cases for two more songs, and then be sure to vote for the one you want to hear. We will play the winner at 8:10am.
