Hi all,
We've had a great run of Songs of the Month in the first half of 2017, but looking ahead at the remainder of the year, we have only two months spoken for:  banjochris has volunteered to do the Song of the Month for July and Pan has agreed to do November's Song of the Month.  Would any of you out there care to select the Song of the Month and prepare the initial posts for August, September, October and December 2017?  If you've not done it before, it is a great opportunity to find out more about a song you already enjoy.  And there is no requirement for a set format, heavy-duty scholarship, etc.  Perhaps we could give people who have not already selected one of the Songs of the Month in the first half of the year a crack at the remaining months.  Anybody want to do one of the remaining months?
All best,
Johnm

I'll volunteer for October. Is there a synopsis of the songs already covered?
Edit: I figured out a search on subjects containing SOTM gives me purt near every previous choice.  :)

Thanks very much for taking October, Dave!  Anyone out there up for taking August, September, or December?
All best,

Or you could click on the SOTM tag at the bottom of this page. I've been tagging the topics as they are posted. Clicking the tag link results in this

Hi all,
There is currently no one who has agreed to take on the Song of the Month selection for August, September and December of this year.  Anyone willing to take August?  The initial post need not be learned or exhaustive in the examples of the song in the initial post.  A less thorough initial post can leave more versions for other folks to find.  It is fun, though, scouting out a lot of versions.  Any takers?
All best,
Johnm

John,
I have actually been working on my October SOTM. It is probably close enough to ready that I could take August (instead). I'm just overly obsessing on what to add to it, anyway.

Thanks for that offer, Dave.  If you feel more or less ready to go this month, let's make the switch and somebody else can step up and take October when it rolls around.  And there's no pressing need to make the initial post in August before you feel you've gotten your research where you want it.  Thanks!
All best,
Johnm

Hi Ned, that would be great, thanks!  As long as we have this momentum going, does anyone want to take September or October, the only un-assigned months we have left in 2017?
All best,

Hi all,
Would anyone care to take on the selection of and initial posting of the Song of the Month for September?  It is available, as is October.  The preparation is a great way to learn more about a song you already like.
All best,
Johnm

Thanks for that, Simon!  It need not arrive at any particular time of the month, either.  Suit it to your own schedule.  Thanks for taking it on.
All best,
Johnm
