we are number 31!
Wednesday MidDay Medley presents part-three, of our four-week special: The 117 Best Recordings of 2017. Based on playlists of this little ole radio show, we’ve compiled representative tracks from our favorite full-length and EP recordings of the year. We realize that these “Best of” lists can seem very subjective, however we ask that you please accept our list as a celebration of the year of music.
In 2017 we’ve played nearly 1000 different songs on the show, and from nearly 375 New & MidCoastal Releases. More than 200 of these releases were New MidCoastal Releases. Over 35 of the bands and artists in our “Best of” list have joined us live in our 90.1 FM studios. This past year we’ve interviewed nearly 200 guests. 70 of the representative recordings in our “Best of” list were MidCoastal Releases, produced by artists from here. It’s all good!
Tune into 90.1 FM, Wednesdays in December, on the 20th, and 27th. We’ll be packing 8-hours of radio with music that represent: The 117 of Best Recordings of 2017!
This Wednesday, we’ll count down #58 through #30 of our list, with representative tracks from: The Whiffs, Instant Karma!, Eems, Jametatone, Lovergurl, Run With It, Mad Libby, The Sluts, KD Kuro, Erica Joy, Of Tree, Khrystal, Erin Keller, Nature Boys, David George, Broken Arrows, Kevin Morby, Sheer Mag, Curtis Harding, Japanese Breakfast, Sampha, Beck, Diet Cig, Jackie Shane, Phoebe Bridgers, The New Pornographers, Hurray For The Riff Raff, The National, and St. Vincent.
