Hello everyone! Happy Community Day!
It's been a few weeks since we announced that shows were on hiatus and we wanted to check in so you all know we're not going anywhere.
...but we are going somewhere, we're all going somewhere. We're all off to the new community site! RT Radio has been a group on the Beta since for a long time now but there are a lot of you who might no have seen that or haven't had access yet. In about 10 days you will have access and we want to make sure you rejoin the RT Radio group for Song of the Day and Album of the Week posts, updates and NEW THINGS.
We also want to encourage you to follow us on Twitter where our Tournaments, random postings and NEW THINGS will be happening.
Huh. We seem to have mentioned 'new things' twice. Yes, new things are in the pipeline. With shows on hiatus we want to make sure there is some other things happening with the group. SOTD and AOTW posts will continue on both Twitter and on the new community site and the Tournaments will continue on Twitter, but we also have some new ideas.
Firstly, we want to encourage you all to post on the group. Anyone can post to the groups feed on the new site so we want you to all to post about what you're listening to, what new music you're finding, what music you're creating, what concerts you're going to. Anything about music you want to share or chat about with the community, post it to the group so we can all get involved! We're calling this The Music Exchange....because we like naming things.
And you guys won’t be the only one’s taking part in The Music Exchange, we’ll be posting too and also use it to let you guys know about special things happening in music. For the vinyl enthusiasts out there we’ll be posting about Record Store Day, what limited releases are coming out and our top picks. We could do rundowns on the years biggest Festivals and awards. Anything we think you guys might enjoy we’ll try to post something about it.
Secondly, we'll be starting a new game, of sorts, on our Twitter. We'll be posting a random line of lyrics and asking you to guess the song. We might do multiple a day from the same song or different songs or just a single tweet, but at the end of the day we’ll post the song and at the end of the week we’ll run a poll asking which song was your favourite that week.
Thirdly, we’ll be looking into doing watch-alongs of movies that are heavy on the music. It could be a big screen adaptation of a musical or a film that has a music theme like Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Walk the Line or A Star is Born. This will take a bit of time to get going, but we’ll post more details when we’re ready to start them.
So those are the new things we have planned for now. More things will probably come up when we think of them and we’re always up for hearing your ideas.
Have a wonderful RT Community Day and we’ll see you on the new site!
