My favorite DJ game is “What’s The Connection?” I loved playing along listening to station KQAK in San Francisco when I was a kid.
The idea is that there is a thread that runs through a block of 4 or 5 songs. Tonight’s first set had a bit of that game in it:

Mountaintop — is by Loretta Lynn
Car Wheels — mentions Loretta
Blow ‘Em Away — continues the car theme
Revenge — continues the going postal theme.

There you have it; radio dissected right in front of your very eyes.
