Spinning Friday tunes since 2010...
For anyone who wants to join in, simply choose five pieces of music and post them for other bloggers to enjoy. Then check out the set posted by the other 5 on Friday blogger -- you can sign in over at Golch Central's Rambling Stuff.
As we head for my 300th set, coming up in eight weeks, let's look back on some of the sets that have led to this milestone.
Mike Golch and I are the only remaining 5 on Friday bloggers since Travis posted his 200th set on November 15th, 2013 and then took a step back from blogging. Travis is the originator of 5 on Friday, and we got to know each other well over the years. I'll always consider him a dear friend.
Back in its heyday, there were up to ten weekly contributors, spinning tunes that introduced me to lots of new-to-me music. For Travis' last set, there was a core group of four of us.
Now it's just me and Mike. We send our sets out into the world and I know from my blog stats that there are many people following the sets, who I'd like to thank for dropping in at A Piece of My Mind over all these years.
Last week, Mike posted his 300th set. Congratulations to my Friday music partner!
Who wants to take a wild guess as to what sort of music appeared on my very first 5 on Friday set?
This week, let's take a trip back through time to Friday, February 12th, 2010 (which was actually my late grandmother Viola's 87th birthday.)
Here is 5 on Friday -- Set 1
Featuring romantic pas de deux (dance duets) from Spartacus, Manon, Carmen, Romeo and Juliet, and Swan Lake.
