All Done!

 

After many hard fought battles March Sadness is over!

 

Here is the final song that made it from the original Sixty-Four songs that we started the tournament with!

 

http://kboo.fm/blog/56920

 

Thanks to all the listeners and volunteers who submitted songs and voted round after round!

 

*The results from all the rounds, resources, other information and ALL the song submissions from KBOO listeners (and some other March Sadness events) listed below:

 

 

 

*REMEMBER: "No voter suppression down here at KBOO, we welcome voters from all ages, races, orientations, we won't allow gerrymandering and we don't require ID (or any type of log in) in order to Vote"

Wouldn't it be nice (and a far different world we'd be living in right now) if that we're true across the nation. Diversions like this would still be fun as hell but not as necessary for maintaining sanity ;)
