Working from home? Going out of your mind with boredom? Us too. Why not play the WhatsApp Jukebox game and liven up your #stayhome work day with some music you may have forgotten you had, or just haven’t listened to in a while? It’s something I invented with all this spare time on my hands and it’s keeping me entertained.
Here’s how it works. You will need a music library (digital or analogue, it doesn’t matter) a speaker, or headphones if you don’t want to disturb anyone in the house, and some friends on WhatsApp.
Ask a friend or one of your group chats for a letter from A-Z. Scroll – or flick, if you’re using vinyl – to the category of artists of the corresponding letter. Then ask for a number and count through the artists until you land on that number. If the number you have been given is greater than the number of artists in your library, just go back round to the beginning of the category and keep counting.
