The Envelope, Please
It’s the moment all of you (well, ten of you) have been waiting for: the winner of the First Mix Tape Friday Contest.
Ten brilliant musicologists (or ten classic rock station addicts, or ten brilliant Googlers) submitted their guesses for the original artists covered on the I Wanna Rawk! mix tape. Three correctly guessed all forty, and the rest missed just a couple — so all ten names went into the hat.
As you can see by the photo below, we followed the regulations set by Roberts Rules of Order, using an actual hat from which to draw the winning entry. You can’t tell it in the photo, but Favorite Boy blindfolded me and spun me around three times (which was strange since there was neither donkey nor tail nearby) before I reached into the hat.
And reach in I did … to pull out the name Tenacious S! She was one of just three who correctly guessed Bloodrock on the first ballot, so she earned it.
Ms. S., I will contact you later this week to talk about themes for the March 28 mix tape.
Don’t fret, kids, there will be more mix tape contests this year.
