Each participant drafts 5 songs within a certain musical theme.Then, listeners vote on whose playlist is the best, and the curator of the playlist with the most votes will select the theme for the next episode. This podcast was inspired by a comment from a listener-supporter named Hannah, who wrote: "I was in a 'fantasy playlist league' with some friends where we had to submit our best new tunes each week and vote on them. I won thanks to OpenAir!"

    The Playlist League: Festival Lineup Closing Songs

    Taking something as beautifully subjective as music preference and turning it into a ruthless competition, it's The Playlist League! Hosted by Jessi Whitten and featuring a rotating cast of OpenAir hosts (102.3 FM Denver), musicians and Denver community members, The Playlist League drafts playlists song by song according to a theme and asks the listener to vote which one reigns supreme. The winning playlist drafter is awarded the honor of picking the theme for the next episode. Our first episode features Jeremy Petersen, Jessi Whitten and Bruce Trujillo as they wrap up festival season in Colorado by drafting the ultimate festival lineup and the band's closing songs. The Playlist League theme music is performed by Dressy Bessy.

So good!

The chemistry is great. Long live CPR’s OpenAir!

Something missing

Just finished listening to the iconic song from a movie playlist. Even though you titled it best sound track. There are lots missing and I would have had 5 on my draft board. Something similar happened with love song duets but that was more like 10 on my draft board. I also wish more of the songs were played.

Meh!

Definitely does not live up to the “battle royale” statements of their CPR adverts. 3 likable hosts who know music but there’s not much to grab or keep attention here - maybe play more much of the selected songs & trim some of the back & forth chatting?
