How it works:

Six DJ Spots are available in the room for participating participants to share their music picks with the room. Once a DJ picks a song, the participating participants are allowed to vote the song, which starts off at a 50% approval rating either ‘Awesome’ or ‘Lame.’ If an overwhelming majority of the room’s participants vote the song ‘Lame’, the song is automatically skipped by

Given the song-rating participation, a song with an average approval of 65% or more should be considered ‘Excellent.’

During each song, participating participants also encouraged to reflect on the song choice or share in relevant information regarding stadium/arena music. Participants may also share questions or comments regarding best practices in #sportsbiz today.

Included with each song listing below are any corresponding room conversation.

• @MJFarrell: we were going to get adaptors for our t-shirt cannons and mount them for outside games

This being our first try at this, we lost a few of the initial conversations, but I included a summary below song titles anyway. Also, some of the comments got jumbled when I initially transfered them into Word, so my apologies if your comments are misclassified (shouldn't be too many) See Y'all next week!

I know it's possible to export playlists from TT to but do you know if it's possible to export a room history from TT so I can import that into my library? Thanks!
