October 9th is an important day in Shuffle Function land - it is John Lennon's birthday. You can count on hearing three hours of his music during the morning show tomorrow, and as always we encourage you to participate. You can call in your requests when we are live tomorrow morning at 389 - 5678 or 1 - 800 - 456 - 7810 or email us requests anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
There are however a few rules of the road that we should address.
1) We must abide by FCC standards for radio - so that means there will be NO WORKING CLASS HERO. As much as we like the song, we like our radio license better!
2) John Lennon's solo material is perfectly acceptable request material.
3) Beatles requests get a little tricky. We will happily play the songs that John sings out right. We will even play some that Paul shares singing duties with. WE WILL NOT PLAY SONGS FROM THE BEATLES SUNG BY ONLY PAUL, GEORGE or RINGO.
that means no Long and Winding Road, no Yellow Submarine and most importantly,
NO OLD BROWN SHOE!!
Don't worry folks - as you can see by the elaborate flow chart I have built for this very day, I can help ensure that your request works or doesn't work.
4) If you have a Beatles request - I will ask you if you want to hear stereo or mono. Shyboy Tim will talk more about this tomorrow morning.
