This Week’s Throwback Thursday Competition is an Old School 80s Battle
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
It was a battle of the 80s this week, featuring a heroic one-hit wonder and one of the biggest bands of the decade. It initially seemed like an unfair fight, until the votes started coming in.
I chose "Believe It or Not" (theme song from The Greatest American Hero) by a fella named Joey Scarbury. Liberty went with "Back in Time" from the always-popular Huey Lewis and the News (from the Back to the Future franchise). Right off the bat, it was neck and neck, back and forth, but eventually, little Joey and his 1981 hit would come out on top.
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.
