Have you heard of Turntable.fm
? The social DJing service allows you to play licensed songs for others and/or to listen to what others play. It is a lot of fun and I have been spending a lot of time on it lately.
The service allows you to create rooms and, for a couple of weeks now, I have wanted to try to host a Bad Boy Records DJ set, focusing on music released by or featuring artists that are now or were once signed to Bad Boy. With former artists, I will be playing music that they released or were featured on while they were with Bad Boy.
Our first attempt at this is going to be this Saturday, July 9, from 9 to 10 PM Eastern Time
. I'll be DJing for the room, playing a wide array songs and hopefully taking a few requests, as well. If it goes well, we'll make it a regular thing and maybe even extend it beyond an hour.
Turntable.fm is not open to the general public, unfortunately. To join, you must be in the United States and you must have a Facebook friend who is already on the service. Visit Turntable.fm
and connect your Facebook page to see if you have one. However, if you don't, all is not lost. I would be happy to add you as a friend on my personal Facebook
, so that you can get in. When you submit the friend request, please include a note saying that you are a Bad Boy Blog reader, so that I know where you are coming from.
Once you are on Turntable.fm, you'll have everything that you need to hang out in the room, listen to some Bad Boy music and chat with me and others. You can find the Bad Boy Blog room at turntable.fm/badboyblogcom
. I look forward to seeing you there!
