The Official Scope Madness Bracket

The votes have been tallied. The songs have been seeded. The time for battle is upon us. And you can play along!

It’s time to grab your official Scope Madness bracket. Fill it out. Start an office pool. Use your knowledge to taunt your adversaries. But most importantly, follow along as we pick our way through the bracket on our way to the Scope Madness Final Four.

In the days to come, we’ll be periodically announcing on Facebook and Twitter which songs have advanced to the next round of play. The Final Four will be announced on the next episode of The Scope. Those four will be debated, and a Scope Madness champion will be crowned.

The winners of the first round will begin to be posted at 12:00 CST on Wednesday, March 31, so don’t delay picking your winners!

The first ever Scope Madness is coming…and we need YOUR help!

Hey, Scope Superfans!

We’re in the middle of planning a grand event and we REALLY need our listeners to help us out to make this thing work.

We’re calling it, simply enough, Scope Madness (in honor of the upcoming NCAA March Madness tourney.) That being said, there will be no basketball or athletics of any kind attached to this event. Frankly, we’d be lucky if we could throw the ball up high enough to even hit the rim.

This tournament revolves around the greatest popular music ever produced…and this is where you, our faithful listeners, come into play.

We’d like each and every one of you to think about your favorite songs of all time. Once you’ve done that, send us your list consisting of:

1. Your favorite song of the 2000s.
2. Your favorite song of the 1990s.
3. Your favorite song of the 1980s.
4. Your favorite song released prior to 1980
(that’s 1979 and older for those of you that don’t understand.)

If you want to send more than one selection, please feel free. The more songs we get, the better Scope Madness will be!

Once we get all of your selections, we’ll place the music into brackets and through healthy debate, ridicule, and taunting, whittle the list down to one ultimate song. Trust us, it’ll be amazing. Or maybe just a great way to fill up a show.

So please, start thinking about your favorite songs. And get your list back to the Scope via facebook, our website, comments@thescopeshow.com, or our voicemail line (646-495-9201 x 70055.)

We’ll be accepting submissions until at least March 20, 2010. But we’ll keep you posted if that changes.

Thanks for your support and help, Scope fans!

Hugs and kisses,
The Scope Triumvirate
(Jared, Adam, and Shane)

We’re Back To It

The furnace is replaced, and the stars have aligned… The Scope will record this Sunday! Look for a new episode on Monday, February 1.

Failed Furnace Forces Fretful… Uh… Delay

Just as we were set to resume our recording schedule, another roadblock has appeared to thwart us. This time, it was Jared’s furnace taking a dirt nap. Avid listeners of The Scope know that the furnace doesn’t play an active role on the show, but since we record in Jared’s basement, the lack of forced-air comfort would result in a fresh batch of scopesicles.

Hopefully this delay is only for a week while the situation gets sorted out. We’ll let you know when we’re back on track.
