    Default Season 450: Reprising Randy's Alphabet Week

    hi folks

    this week is a tribute to one of our most beloved forum members
    and the wonderful week of music he hosted in

    SEASON 332

    the idea is to start w/ a song beginning w/ the letter A
    and work your way through the alphabet. so your second song would
    start w/ the letter B and so-on...

    i remember it was a super fun week as people challenged themselves
    to get as far towards Z as they could and it brought out a wide variety
    of songs, styles and musical genres.

    so if you really have a hankering to play a particular song beginning
    w/ the letter G, then sure thing...you just have to play 6 songs beforehand.

    usual guidelines and time frames apply.

    hope you enjoy the season everyone playing music
    and remembering Randy who brought us all so much joy.

    SEASON 450 PLAYLIST

    Funnily enough, Randy’s original alphabet season was mentioned during this evening’s Zoom session! Great idea, Jon - and a lovely tribute to a super guy whose warmth, spirit, talent and humour encapsulated everything that we all love about the Seasons.

    You beat me to the punch! What are the odds of that happening

    Should be a fun week Jon, thanks for hosting!

    If we can only post one a day, we'll never get past "G". Are there exceptions this season?

    That last time Randy did this, it was like a demolition derby and the Boston Marathon rolled into one week. I remember Rex, Ralf, <TCK>, Trent, (and others?) racing around that 26 song course and starting to lap around the others doing number songs.

    I probably didn't get past the first letter!

    Geeze, BEV, Alan, Big Daddy, Pa, Wim, so many others....what a monster!

    Good Luck Everybody! (Especially Jon!)

    Golly! Well, last time I managed to cover the whole alphabet in one song ... now I've done that, I'll have to stick to one letter at a time. Hopefully, I'll get past "A." A nice way to remember, Randy, but, as Christopher says, good luck to you, Jon!
