    We didn't have a challenge thread for January, so I thought about creating one for February. Let's have fun with this and play something each day and post here. The usual rules are not to repeat something that someone else has played for that day. Also try not to repeat any of your albums on different days. If you don't have something that works for that day, feel free to interpret the daily spin any way you want. The most important rule is to have fun!

    Feb 1 - It's a new month. Play something new.
    Doesn't have to be a new release, just something that you have recently acquired.

    Feb 2 - Groundhog day. Play something with an animal on the cover.
    Bonus points if it is an actual groundhog.

    Feb 3 - It's Superbowl Sunday. Play a record with a "Jock Jam" on it.
    Something that boosts up a crowd to cheer on their favorite team to victory. (Go Rams!).

    Feb 4 - 4 Strings on (most) Bass Guitars. Play an album with a song (or songs) that have a great bass line.

    Feb 5 - Up The Punks! Play a punk rock album.

    Feb 6 - 6 Strings on (most) guitars. Play an album featuring your favorite guitarist.

    Feb 7 - Play a 7" record.

    Feb 8 - My favorite number is 8. Play your favorite album.

    Feb 9 - Play something for the person that posted after you yesterday.

    Feb 10 - Play a 10" record.

    Feb 11 - It's a Monday and we have to go back to work. Play a Blues album.

    Feb 12 - Today is Darwin's birthday. Play an album that convinced you to like a different genre of music, or a different artist.

    Feb 13 - 13 is considered an unlucky number. Play an album that was not a hit for a band/artist.

    Feb 14 - Valentines Day. I'll keep it simple. Play a red or pink album.

    Feb 15 - It's Friday! Play an album that puts you in a good mood for the weekend.

    Feb 16 - Rock and Roll Saturday. Play a rock album and play it loud.

    Feb 17 - Jazz Sunday.

    Feb 18 - President's Day (here in the States). Play an album that talks about politics, or has a political message.

    Feb 19 - Rap and Hip Hop. Play a rap or hip hop album.

    Feb 20 - By now we should have received our ROM. Play whatever record you received this month. (obviously repeats are allowed today).

    Feb 21 - Country music. Play a country (or western) album.

    Feb 22 - Today is National Margarita Day. Play an album that makes you think about drinking or references drinking in a song.

    Feb 23 - Last week we had Rock and Roll Saturday. We are older this week, so let's play a Classic Rock album.

    Feb 24 - Oscar Sunday. Play your favorite soundtrack.

    Bonus points if it is a soundtrack that was nominated for an Oscar this year or another year.

    Feb 25 - Electronic/Dance music. Play an electronic or dance album.

    Feb 26 - Classical Music. Play something that you would consider classical music.

    Feb 27 - We all love colored vinyl. Play a colored vinyl record.

    Feb 28 - End of the month. Play a band's last album that they released.

    BONUS Feb 29 - Superman's birthday. Play an album by one of your music heroes.

    Superman's birthday according to Action Comics #149.

    Depending on how it goes this month/how many people are down, I wouldn't mind running March. (I'm getting ahead of myself, I know.)

    October was the last I think? It seems that we get burned out after 4 or 5 on the bounce and need a break lol

    I thought there was a November, but maybe it was October. December had a Christmas record challenge so that was kinda like having one. I tried to make sure all genres of music were covered in this one. I haven't been able to complete one yet, but I plan on it for February (especially since I started it).

    Im at a gig tonight (SEED Ensemble - Driftglass album launch) and wont get back home until late, so this is slightly cheating (hope thats ok)....but I picked up and listened to this for the first time last night.

    John Gordon - Erorica Suite. A great reissue from Superfly Records, originally released on Strata East in 1978. Limited to 1000 copies with the OBI Strip. A great Jazz record.

    Feb 1 - It's a new month. Play something new.

    This just arrived on my doorstep today. I totally forgot I ordered this! I saw them live in November and pre-ordered their album after the show.

    Day 1 - New month, new record.

    Purchased in 1995 for the Massive Attack w/ Tracey Thorn track. Caved when the vinyl was $7.50, lol.
