80s New Wave Takes on Early 90s Rock in This Week’s Throwback Thursday Competition
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
I wasn't super confident coming into this week's competition. I was riding a 5-week losing streak, so you can understand why. I once again received a bunch of really great requests/suggestions from our friends on Facebook. I decided to go with a one-hit wonder from 1980..."Whip It" from DEVO. Liberty, getting inspiration from something she said on the air, went with Van Halen's "Right Now" from 1991.
I thought for sure that I was heading toward my sixth loss in a row, but the voters had other plans. The votes quickly took off in my favor, and there was no looking back. Mandy and I won!
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.
