    Default Happy birthday, again!

    Hi, folks!

    Dave McMillin here again, this time I'm doing a theme that's timed just right. Next Saturday is my birthday and I want to do a birthday theme, just like Geoff Walker did with Season 304 back in 2017.

    There was another season I wanted to do so much, but that still has to be thought out more. I'm doing the current one as an alternate plan.

    All you have to do is find a musician who was born between July 5 and 12 and play the song from that one person, whether the person is a solo act or performing with a band. Here's a link for the musician's birthdays lists. However, if you're not swayed by the choices from the links, you can do a song, cover or an original song, including either the words "Happy" or "Birthday" or both. I won't mind.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catego...ns_by_birthday

    If you're performing an original song, write one about the singer whose birthday means that much to you.

    Starting time is Midnight, Hawaiian time Sunday at 12:00 am and end time is Midnight, Hawaiian time Monday at 12:00 am.

    Ukuleles must be front and center. Collabs and multitracking are welcome, too.

    A three song limit is set. No more than that unless changed on notice.

    I'm hoping this will make me a happy boy on my birthday. Geoff, please, don't sue me for ripping you off.

    Good luck to all.

    Dave McMillin

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    That's very clever, Dave ...looking forward to discovering a suitable birthday boy/girl!

    I don't think that'll make any difference here, Geoff.

    I'm gonna guess that's Jim Kerr and Jack White.

    Keep me posted. I want to hear it. I should've named it Season 438 while I was still writing this. Another thing. I want to say "Happy 4th of July" to all of my seasonistas here!
