Getting jiggy with it....


On Saturday we are having a huge event at our corporate headquarters. A local car dealer last year agreed to give away a car to a lucky donor. All during the year, every time you registered to give blood, you got another entry and chance to win the car. It's a 2006 red Pontiac G6.

We're giving it away Saturday. It's a huge undertaking. We're not sure how many people will come to register, but it could be a couple thousand.

When it was going to be a short event, from noon to 2 pm, I agreed to be the emcee.

It has since expanded to six hours at least, from 8 am until 2 pm minimum. I still have to emcee, of course.

I don't have that much material. Gadzooks!

Today I burned a couple of CDs. We're renting a nice sound system, CD player, mixing board, etc. I need some music to play to distract from the fact that I'm not very entertaining.

I tried to keep it safe, with tunes that were bouncy and that everybody would know, and that wouldn't offend anyone.

That eliminates a lot of my favorites, damn it.

I think I came up with a pretty good mix. Kind of heavy on the 80's, but I don't think that's a bad thing:
