Name That Tune

With these contests I play top 20 hits from the mid 50's thru 1972 and one note at a time. The first person to correctly identitfy the song title wins. If no one wins after one note is played I will play 2 notes and again the first correct guesser wins. If still no winner, I will repeat the above one note at a time until we do have a winner

NOTE: With these contests we have waiting period or delay in the chatroom before any guesses are allowed. The reason for this has to do with the fact that the program is streamed over the internet and there is a delay that varies from listener to listener. Meaning the time it takes for the contests, music or anything said on the air, to reach our listeners varies and is not the same for everyone. The typical delay is 8 seconds, but it can be longer for others, even as long as 15 or 20 seconds later.

Meaning, without this guessing delay, we often end up with some folks guessing, while others are still listening to the actual contest itself. The delay involves an easy procedure where right before these contests start, one of the judges will post a bright red banner in chat asking that all guesses (and chat) be held until the green go ahead banner is placed into chat. I do this myself and it's 30 seconds after I hear the contest itself finish on my end.

While all guesses before the green banner do not count, should you find yourself inadvertently jumping the gun (and it does happen), you are certainly allowed to guess after the green 'go ahead' banner and you are encouraged to do so.

As rules and key points go, that's it for Name That Tune contests. If you have any ideas you would like to forward to me or if you just want to provide some feedback, feel free to email me at
