The Sol Sector Block Party's mission is to boldly explore music , much in the same way the great captains of Star Trek explore the galaxy. Each episode of the SSBP contains "blocks" of songs that fit particular themes or musical genres. Typically we do 5-6 blocks per episode, each with their own theme, although often you will see certain blocks such as the Trek Block return regularly.
Once a month we take a break from the regular format to engage in an in-game dance party in Star Trek Online. February's dance party occurred this past weekend and it was a total blast! We had a great turn-out with listeners dressing their STO characters up in some great raver costumes. Congrats to player @lhr002 who won our grand prize giveaway of a Master Key! Everyone who attended was eligible for a party prize pack and I've sent them out to everyone on my list. However if you attended the party and didn't receive your gifts please contact me and I'll make sure you get taken care of!
Ok, now on to this week's episode of the SSBP where we'll be returning to the show's regular format. I've got some fantastic blocks lined up for you covering several timely topics. First up it's Mardi Gras weekend which means we'll have a giggly pair of Mardi Gras themed blocks!. Not to mention Sunday night is also Oscar Night so we'll have a couple of blocks dedicated to the soundtracks and films nominated for awards this year. Additionally, in honor of some of the great entertainers we've lost this year, an "In-memoriam" block will be held.
All that and more coming up on Sunday in the Sol Sector Block party, @10PM PST/ 1AM EST on Trek Radio.net! You don't want to miss it!
