Hello and welcome to oldies lovers world-wide. I hope a happy and
prosperous 2020 is in store for you all.

As is the norm for my quizzes, this month's exercise is in the audio 
snippet format.

There are considerably more than the usual smattering of 'Billboard'
cellar dwellers here. 

To ease the difficulty level consider that audio formats are a clue in
and of themselves in terms of recognizable artist voices and familiarity of 
the tunes.  Also there is a "commonality" in the first 25 songs of the
quiz.  You will recognize it quickly and it may help you to identify 
the otherwise difficult snippets.  T2 is a bit of a stinker, so I will
say that the tie breakers are covered by a different but similar 

You may download either the individual mp3 files or an 10.4 MB ZIP file
containing all 27 sound clips at:

Have fun everyone.
