All the truly good ideas are worth nicking. And that's exactly what we've done (albeit only for the next two Sunday nights).
Anyone who follows @MonkeyPicks on twitter will be aware of the wonderful thing that was #sotsbingo. It was a regular staple of many of our Saturday mornings, and something that, along with the great Brian Matthew presenting, will be sorely missed.
But Monk, being the good egg that he is, has agreed to dig out his notebook for one last hurrah. Over the next two Sunday nights (5th & 12th March) he'll be doing #FusionBingo.
For those of you who don't know the rules, it's dead simple. Simply chose 5 artists that you think might be played on the Sunday night, and tweet them in advance to Monk along with the hashtag #FusionBingo
Whoever gets the most correct wins. And there are real prizes to be won - more of that in a bit.
A couple of hints that may or may not be of use to you. The show on the 5th will be Mick & the show on the 12th will be Ed.
Both Mick & Ed's set-lists are already decided and sealed, and known only by them. Nobody else knows, nor will they.
No artist will be repeated, so if Mick plays a particular band they won't be on Ed's set the following week.
Scores will be totted up over both shows, so even if you do badly - or don't enter the first week - you'll still be in with a chance of winning, as whoever has the most points after both shows will be the winner. It's one game spread out over two weeks.
Normal rules apply - in the event of a draw, the artist deemed by Monk to be the most obscure choice will get the casting vote.
Just about all the songs will be from the 1960's, with maybe an odd excursion into the late 50's.
Finally. you'll have to be logged in to the FusionOnAir chatbox on Mixlr here on at least one of the Sundays if you want to win the prizes. And there'll be a prize not only for the winner, but also the runner-up.
And what prizes can be won? You'll have to wait & see for now. They'll be announced on Sunday night, but suffice to say they've been chosen with music and clobber in mind.
So don't just sit there reading this - have a go. Tweet your entries to Monk along with the hashtag #FusionBingo
And good luck.
