Call for requests for the Super 8 at 8
« on: March 29, 2004, 12:01:44 am »
On ProgRoots I have been doing a new weekly feature called "The Super 8 at 8" and I'd like you to participate.

The Super 8 are eight of my all-time favorite artists, and I will play a track by each in no particular order, starting at 8:00 every Sunday night.

The first five artists will be the "Untouchable Five" and will be included every week.  But the last three artists to be featured each week will rotate from eight  candidates.

Here are the untouchable five artiists, again in no particular order:

The Beatles
Pink Floyd
Yes
Deep Purple
Emerson, Lake & Palmer

The candidates for the final three spots are:

The Tubes
Todd Rundgren
Porcupine Tree
Kevin Gilbert
Led Zeppelin
Alice Cooper
Jimi Hendrix
Kim Mitchell (including Max Webster)

What I'd like you to do is suggest what songs I play by these artists.  You can post your choices here, or email them to me at rene@thedividingline.com

I will remove old posts from this topic once I have played the suggested tracks.  Thanks!

OK, I have played all suggestions submitted so far, with the exception of Isabella by Hendrix and Hideaway by Todd, both of which will be coming soon.  Of course, if you send a suggestion it would be nice if you also were there when I play it  ;)

So I need more help folks.  See the list of artists above, speak up and be counted!
