I see the sense in the small groups as far as a monthly manageable expense.

I like this concept. Because that's about how many blank CDs I can afford. Is one. One blank CD. Per Month.

The whole monthly theme thing is for people who are interested in taking on that theme.  If they are not, they don't have to participate that month.  It would make it a "you get out of it what you put in it" sort of model.  Only the ones who signed up to participate that month would be matched up to someone.

I like the idea of a higher return, though... {#Think}

 
Seriously, whatever you decide on, I'll be happy with.  Good idea :-)

I liked this idea too...until I had 38 people interested right off the bat (on here and Facebook).  That would probably be enough mixtapes to make me hate this whole thing.  The idea of co-hosting would simply mean two or three people split the group evenly and send out each host's CD (about two or three depending on the size of the group) in one package.

I think I like the one-on-one exchange the best as far as time, expense, and feasability goes.  In addition to the one-on-one, I do like the idea of uploading my cover art, liner notes, and mix to Scott's mac server for anyone who might be interested in getting their fix that way.  This of course would also be an optional afterthought.  Any thoughts?

I think OCDHG described it pretty well down below, right after my post with those 3 different ideas of how it could function.
 
Except that I was thinking that there would only be 3 or 4 people making CDs each month instead of everyone doing it. NAF would have to take volunteers for each month, and then assign each of those people a small group that they'd be sending a CD to. The process would start anew each month, so that no one ever knew who they were going to be getting a CD from.

Almost makes me want to see if I hung onto any of my old mixtapes so that I could recreate them as a CD instead. All that old music that I had recorded off the radio back when I was a teenager...
 
The one-on-one exchange could be a lot of work for you each month, and it also means that everyone is making a CD each month. Not that I'm adverse to that, but not everyone might want to have to do it every month.

It's very much going to depend on how you want to do this...
  • Is it a one-to-one exchange?
  • Is it a multiple "host" thing where 3 or 4 people send CDs out to a couple of people each month?
  • Is it the responsibility of one person to send CDs to everyone in the group?
 Different approaches work for each, but I do say it should be a physical CD exchange, no matter which way it goes. While I understand the appeal of digital music being exchanged, I think that sort of defeats the original intent you had for the group. Or did I misunderstand? 

EDIT: Then again, this is your project... so whatever you decide should be the way it goes.

Road trip mixes are the best, natch.  For the giddyup music, we might need disclaimers about speeding tickets caused by listening to the mixes.  {#Wink}

I'd like it if whoever is doing the mix decides the theme, though.  Otherwise it feels too much like homework

 

lol  How about we make the theme thing optional?  I think if I'm going to do this every month, I'll eventually need a little help with a theme.

dio made an interesting suggestion on your FB page—the idea of it being one person sending a CD to one person each month. Sort of the way the gift swaps have worked here, just with CDs.
 
I don't know how many people you've got signed up for this yet, but it could be split into smaller groupings and the "co-hosts" (I think you mentioned the idea of them at some point) for that month could each get a small group that they send CDs to of their own making...
  
Sorry, just brainstorming out loud here.
