Hi there! Mid-summer update time!!!
Anyway, the main purpose for this post was to see what my friends/readers think about some ideas I am having for the upcoming season of LostRadio (yes, folks, Season 5. SEASON 5!!! Hard to believe!!!)
Originally, we did the character-song contests, and even with the plethera of cast, we ended up doing 2-3 shows for each character by the end of S2. So, then it was "topic" contests, like "Island Weather" or "Season 3 Predictions", which was fun. For S4, I opted to try out the "LOST playlist" for people to get a bunch of songs from their favorite artist(s) outta their heads and onto the airwaves. Again, fun, but...
It's time for a change.
So....I am debating whether or not to go back to the character-song contests, just for the fact that we have so many new characters that have never been featured, let alone some of our old characters have changed and different songs are now appropriate. I don't want people to get bored, but I really enjoyed the weekly contests a bit more than I did with the playlists - nothing against any of the awesome playlists that were submitted and/or aired. I just think that the variety of songs each week was a lot of fun. And, now that I can run to a place with free wireless webs and DL the songs in an hour or so, the show prep is easier than ever!!!
I am also contemplating "theme nights"...but not sure if I want to combine them with the character-song contests, or have them on seperate nights as contests of their own. Still brainstorming.
I WILL give yall a heads-up....be thinking of 80s songs that relate to LOST. And songs for Desmond/Penny. Or 80s songs for Des/Penny. lol Just a little tidbit to ready you for the end of August!!! :D
Also, if you have any ideas for interviews (and contact info for interviews would ROCK as well!), segments, or things you'd like to hear on the show, now is your chance! I am thinking of adding a "Elsewhere in Fandom..." segment, where I discuss other shows like BSG, Fringe, The Middleman, Chuck, etc., and possibly interview folks from those shows as well (Hey, there are only 2 seasons left of LOST, and I need to be prepared for a "transition" to Fandom Radio after that...and of course, a more clever name, lol).
