This is a thing that I've been and am doing for years with some of the people from a German music site I frequent. It helps you discover great music, you get to know people and their tastes and it generally is interesting and good fun.
Here's how it works:
Everyone has a limited amount of songs and/or time that they can contribute, let's say 10 minutes and no more than two songs. The numbers depend on how many people want to be part of it really, so at the beginning we'd probably start out low. Anyone who wants to participate says so, posts the song(s) of his choice (just what they are, no links) in the thread and uploads them to a service of their choice. All links are then sent to the organizer who compiles an archive and creates a playlist which then goes out to everyone participating. On a date everyone agrees with people then meet up in IRC, start the playlist simultaneously and chat about the music while it's playing.
(We also rate each song and post a list of the ratings in the forum afterwards in Germany, that only works if people don't take things personally though. If you are cool with ratings that'd also be fun.)

I know I'm new here and everything but this seems more of the place to start this sort of thing than over at the Dtoid forums.

What do you think, anyone interested?

Put simply, everyone sends in a song or two and then we listen to those together.
