Ok, here we go. SEASON 300! Can you believe it?
This week's theme is Deep Cuts. I want you to imagine you are putting together a mix tape or a radio show filled with great songs which you love and you're sure the people you're playing these songs for have never heard them. Play those songs for season 300. There's so much great music out there and it is a crime that they are buried. Unearth these treasures and send us down a rabbit hole. Want to play a Rolling Stones or Neil Diamond song? Great! Just make sure it's a deep cut. Want to play a song by a struggling unsigned band you stumbled upon on YouTube? Fantastic! I love discovering new artists.
For the songwriters make a new vid of your favorite song and/or write a song about how mainstream radio sucks.
There is no song limit. Multi-tracking, multiple instruments, etc. are fine so long as the ukulele is front and center and we can see you playing it.
I won't be sending out any prizes, but I like the idea of making a donation. So, in honor of my beloved dog Denali who we recently had to put down, myself and Ukulelemommy will donate $1 for every vid you bring to an animal shelter in Sonoma County, which as we all know was hit by the worst wildfire in CA history. If you turn me onto an artist or band I've never heard, that vid will be worth $2.
As a little bonus, I will be listening to the original recordings of the songs you bring and I thought it would be fun to do a radio show with my faves. As a lot of you know, TCK and I do a little radio show, The Songs Stuck In My Head. I'll let you all know when I get that show up.
One more note, I will be going out of town towards the end of the week so I may not be able to keep up on your vids at that time. I'll do my best.
Don't start until after midnight Hawaiian time tonight and the Season will end 8 days later on Sunday at midnight Hawaiian time.
