Not that difficult. Just give them a little of everything. Let's keep this to 80 minutes.

This is not a competition, so there are no real rules. I think 80 minutes should be a guidling for a minimum. For instance, I really want to introduce people to the many faces of Starflyer 59. However, they have 11 albums. So I'm thinking of doing a full 80 minutes just on them.
From the viewpoint of a listener, I'd say try and cut it down to between 70-100 minutes. 80 minutes should be a target.

Also I'm doing a selection of stuff I'm currently listening to, that I've discovered this semester.....plus Lit, cause from a few superthread discussions I don't think many people know anything beyond that one single, and they've got some interesting stuff...then I may be biased by the middle school attachment I had to them.

I thought people liked getting new music. I suppose that must not be true, as there are now rules to being nice and going above and beyond to try to give out music. I'll keep that in mind the next time anyone asks me to upload anything.

Cut the whining, Tourist. Keep it to 80 minutes and it'll be better for everyone. Hence the fact that everyone is disagreeing with you.

Well, then I won't be using Starflyer. Too broad.

I'm at 85 minutes with another band I wanna add. Maybe I should take off Lit, as you will all dislike it anyway.

But the point is to give a sample, and if someone likes it, they'll ask for more. If we were doing a music swap of CDs we'd be back in the superthread shooting the shit.

oooh now that's fun

The Electric Co.
Bad
either Unforgettable Fire or A Sort of Homecoming
One Tree Hill
Acrobat
Stay

if they've really been living under a rock, I'd throw in Beautiful Day and Mysterious Ways, otherwise I'd assume they'd heard those two.

I'd like to give this a shot

Does it have to be 3-5 different artists or could it just be 2 or even 1?

It would be better to have more than two to expose more artists to people but you don't have to.

Well one of the artists I was planning on using has a career spanning from 1973 - Up until now, which would need a good few tracks for a fair reflection

My suggestion and this is only a suggestion is maybe have 3/4 of your playlist belong to that artist and 1/4 of another artist. It is up to you though.
