The History of SOTD (So Far)

Sputnik's Song of the Day Contest was created in January 2018 by neekafat. After doing the first two months on his own, he invited other regular users to guest host. In September 2018, bgillesp (who was hosting that month), instead of just having users rec random songs that they liked, came up with the notion of a monthly theme. The SOTD is still going on this month, and in fact, there are still a few slots open for recs at the end of the month. Anyone can join and rec a song in any given month (if there are still slots vailable), and you can rate any or all of the songs whether you've rec'd a song or not.
