PROG & ROLL Radio Show: 'The Song of the Month'

Hello all!
  Last night we had one more Prog & Roll radio show, and we had our big contest for 'the Song of the Month'. It was the last contest for this year, and in general as well. Starting from January, we will stop playing this 'grading the songs game', therefore there we will not have another contest.
We are thinking of making some changes in the show, and this will be one of them.
  Anyway, last night we had 11 songs in our playlist for the contest, which started in 20.45 (CET) and lasted until 22.00 (CET). But before that, we played 8 songs in our regular program. We started with a small tribute to the Hard-Rock scene of the '70's, and we continued with 4 big bands of a more 'Progressive' orientation. And after those 8 songs the contest begun.
   And at the end of our show, we knew which song was voted from the audience as the Song of the month for November, and at the same time was the last entry in our annual Top-10.
 And this song is no other than the wonderful 'Life on Mars?' by David Bowie!
 Here you can see the whole playlist from last night, and at the end I will add a video with the winning song.
