SINGLE SNIPPETS
:

I play short snippets
from top 20 records from the 50's (1955
through 1963), the 60's (1964 through 1969) or the 70's (1970
through appx. 1976). Normally I change the decade for each
contest
on a rotating basis.

The intial snippet is at least 2 seconds long and I play this two
times in a row. If we do not get a winner from that snippet, you
can request 'more' in chat and I will then play other typically
longer snippets from other parts of the same song. If needed,
clues will be provided as well.


The first person to guess the song title correctly after the green
go-ahead banner
(see below) according to myself and any judges
assisting me (there are usually two)
will be delared the winner.
We do try to mention all other winners on these contests.

In addition, you will need to have at least 2 words from the actual
song title. Subtitles and added tyrics to your guess, do not help or
hurt your guess, as long as you have three words from the actual
song title itself. Obvioulsy, if the song title has only one or two
words, then that's all you need for your song title guess.


NOTE: With contests like these we have waiting period or delay
before any guesses are allowed. The reason for this has to do
with the fact that the program is streamed over the internet and
there
is a delay that varies from listener to listener. Meaning the time
it takes for the contests, music or anything said on the air, reaches
our listenning audience is not the same for everyone. The typical
delay is 8 seconds, but it can be longer for others. In fact, some
won't hear the contests until 10,15 or even as long as 20 seconds
later.


Meaning, without this guessing delay, we often end up with some
folks guessing, w
hile others are still listening to the actual contest
itself.

We do make this an easy procedure to follow, however. Right
before these contests start, one of the judges will put a bright
red banner in chat asking that all guesses (and chat) will held
until the green banner or go ahead is placed into chat. I do this
myself and it's typically 20-25 seconds after I hear the contest
ends.

While no guesses before the banner are official and will not 
count, should you find yourself inadvertanty jumping the gun
(and it does happen), you are allowed to guess after the green
'go ahead' banner and
you are encouraged to do so. In fact, if
your 'jump the gun' guess is correct and you do not guess again,
someone else may end up 'stealing' your guess and winning with
it.


As rules and key points go, that's it for Single Snippets. If you
have any ideas you would like to foprward to me or if you just
