March Madness contests are all going live on March 24th, 17th

Q101.1 in Chicago, 92.3 K-Rock in New York, WMMR in Philadelphia (where you can now recommend bands for the tournament), and possibly The Katt in Oklahoma City are all doing this Madness thing on Monday, March 24.

WCBN in Boston is bucking the trend and starting theirs up on March 17, with NIN going up against Blink 182 in the first round, followed by the winner of Metallica vs. The Offspring. It'll be a good test run to see if it's worth slamming the rest of the country with our fan blitz. Thanks to everyone who wrote in! As the time draws closer, we'll also keep track of this on Echoing the Sound.

Last year was a lot of fun, particularly when we bewildered the DJs into speechlessness with our ridiculous comebacks. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some stiff competition this year, or if the votes end up rigged to counteract our reach, but... who cares.
