Pre match music at GM

Postby schizo » Fri Nov 04, 2011 7:50 pm

I dont know who selects the pre match music at GM but would it be possible for Shrewschat to open an 'Ask the DJ' board where people can suggest or request any pre match music directly to the club?

I feel the pre match music is a little dull myself and I have a couple of suggestions which I think could uplift the crowd a little, but I appreciate that not everyone is into dance music!

My two suggestions are

There has been a lot of change and work done recently and the feedback i've had has been very positive.

There have been a few strange things coming in recently, wild thing!, and i'll make sure those come out.

Basically there's a playlist for most games with the tracks mixed down to about 2 minutes in length at the longest, and then goes into a mix of robbie williams, andy williams, beatles,then theme from rocky and then catch us if you can.

This is the point I was trying to make! The pre match mix at the moment is poor IMO, listening to ballads from the likes of Robbie and Andy Williams does nothing for me and I would prefer to listen to upbeat dance tunes before the game, but what the overall majority prefer is open to debate!

Oh and I have another suggestion :)

this is the problem - people have different tastes in music so you can't keep everyone happy.
The last thing I want to hear is dance music bleating out but its what floats Schizo's boat.

i think it would be nice vary it a bit, so could we not have 50-50 so one week fans choice and the next home game as we do now?

And another personal favourite of mine

Tears For Fears - Shout

Or how about this, and replace lyrics with 'HI HO, MIGHTY SALOP!' :wink:

I'm a bit suprised that our Commercial Team hasn't seized on the idea of a subscription service 'Fans Jukebox' to exploit the market for pre-match music.

The service would allow individual fans to hear their favourite tracks (for a payment). The rest of us won't have to suffer the same old stuff before each match.

There could be a sliding scale of charges with requests played at 2pm being cheaper than the ones closer to kick-off.

Alternatively add it as a perk to the fantastic Matchday Hospitality package - anyone who pays £66 surely deserves to have a request played. Stand by for 'Prawn Sandwich Favourites'. :D :D

This was riding high in the charts on the day we last won promotion from this division.

Maybe an airing on Saturday wouldn't be a bad idea? It seems like an appropriate sort of tune for the occasion too.
