The schedule of DJs and their real-time playlists & tweets follows the introduction below, followed by my planned playlist.


Introduction:

We’re all missing Andrew Breitbart since his sudden, untimely passing last week.  He was my boss and my mentor, but most of all, he was my friend.

Andrew was a master at Twitter.  He truly grasped the importance of social media as a tool in networking, activism, mining for and disseminating information, spotting trends and at crafting and driving a story.  Most of all, Andrew recognized its importance as a weapon in the arsenal of this battle of media narratives today.  One of his trademark moves was to retweet all the hate directed at him – there is no better way to illustrate the intolerance of the militant left than to simply allow them to expose themselves.

But Andrew wasn’t just a warrior.  He was a funny, bright, interesting guy who charmed even his opponents once they met him.  He was fiercely loyal and painfully human.  The caricature of Andrew Breitbart created by so many on the left was nothing like the real Andrew Breitbart.  It provided those who really knew him with an endless source of amusement.

Every so often, for those who followed Andrew on Twitter, we were treated to Andrew Breitbart, the DJ.  His love of retro and 70’s/80’s Brit Synth-Pop music was an undeniable trait of Andrew’s persona.  And he’d occasionally take a break from taunting his adversaries on Twitter or retweeting hate tweets to share some of his favorite music tracks with tweeps, hash-tagging them #DJBreitbart.

In keeping with that tradition, some wonderful friends have organized a tribute in Andrew’s honor this weekend:  The #DJBreitbart Project.

For 24 hours beginning this Sunday, March 11th, 24 bloggers & personalities will take to Twitter to spend one hour each to DJ a selection of 10 tracks, tweeting the title and link to each song and adding their own commentary.  Simply go to Twitter and follow the hashtag #DJBreitbart to listen along.  I’ll be spinning for the 10pm PST/1am EST hour.

It’s a fitting tribute that I know Andrew himself would have loved.  I suspect he’ll be up there in heaven on Sunday, retweeting every song.

Thanks to @EvanPokroy for organizing this grooooovy event, and to @PruPaine, @HLawver, @texicalirose, @rdbrewer4, @rpetty, @juleslalaland and the rest of the gang.

Rest easy, my friend, we’ll carry your sword.  I miss you.

The event begins at Midnight on March 11th, on Twitter at the #DJBreitbart hashtag .  The schedule of DJs and real-time playlist and tweets is below, followed by my planned playlist for 10pm PST/1am/EST.
