Big Head Todd & The Monsters’ Long-Distance Wakeup Call

1 Comment 10 March 2011

The recently completed mission of the space shuttle Discovery has been in the news because it marks the final flight of that storied spacecraft. But, the mission also marked a first. Big Head Todd & The Monsters won a NASA contest to provide the first-ever live musical wakeup call for the astronauts from Mission Control.

Appropriately, the song, “Blue Sky” was written as a tribute to the Discovery’s return to space following the Columbia disaster. Big Head Todd & The Monsters won the contest with over 700,000 votes, nearly a third of the total cast.

    I voted from all of my email accounts and some fake ones along with some of my husbands votes we did it for Todd & Monsters. I Love the sound of BHT&tMs. Always have and always will. I thank my time rockin’ to 92.3 while at IU for that.
