These contests involve me playing three tunes and I identify each
song as I do. The objective is to figure out what the connection,
common thread or theme is. The theme could involve the song
titles, the artists or groups, who wrote the songs
, what is heard
in the songs or music itself (ie all the songs have bongos in the
mix) or
or a myriad of other things.

However, for many of these connection sets a knowledge of music
and/or oldies is not needed. For example, the song titles may
all contain the same word, or the artists or groups have a color in
their name.

This is one of the few contests that does not have many rules,
except one. The 'intended connection' is the only one that counts
when it comes to declaring a winner. I do thoroughly check for
alternate or other possible connectons and then make changes
to avoid such a scenario. However, sometimes there are still
other themes or connections that get discovered and guessed.
If this occurs we will give the guesser an honorable mention,
but again the intended connection is the only official connection. 

You can start guessing as soon as you wish, and as is the case
with all the contests, as often as you'd like. 
The first person
to guess the theme or connection correctly, according to myself
and any judges assisting me (there are usually two) will be
declared the winner. 

Connections Set ideas or themes that are not used:

* 'All the artists are decease
d' or 'at least one group member
  is deceased' - connections. So many of the artists we play
  are unfortunately deceased. So very often in a connection
  set group of tunes, this is indeed the case. This would be
  another example of an alternate or non-intended connection.

  However, it is possible I could use a theme like - 'all these
  stars died in a plane crash' (ie tunes from Jim Croce, Jim
  Reeves and
Buddy Holly). However, if used at all these types 
  will be few and far between.

 * Each song title or artist/group name has the same number
   of word or letters. Or the first song title has one word, the
   second song title has 2 words and the third song title has 3
   words or any such similiar pattern invovling the song titles
   or artists.

As rules and key points go, that's basically it for Connection Sets.

A number of the connection set ideas do come from our listeners.
So if you have a connection set idea you'd like to send me or if you
just want provide some feedback, feel free to email me at
