We've Got A Secret!
We now know the Top 100 albums of the year, as determined by airplay on KXCI from mid-December 2005 through last week.
And the top album is...
The last one we will play on the Top 100 Albums countdown, this New Year's Day Monday, starting at 6am.
The countdown starts at 6am with Album #100 - Oh No! Oh My!'s self-titled album, but that is absolutely all we're saying.
We won't tell you who is on the list - we won't "Cracker" under pressure from the listeners. In these "Modern Times" it's important to take a "Departure" from providing too much of "The Information," instead leaving the countdown as a "Surprise" for our listeners.
Okay - one more clue. The countdown includes old favorites like Los Lobos, Johnny Cash, and Bruce Springsteen, new favorites like K.T. Tunstall and Gnarls Barkley, and local favorites like Calexico and Howe Gelb - but that's it - we're not saying anything else!!! You'll just have to tune in on New Year's Day.
(Of course, you can also wander down a few blog posts to our "preview" article where you can learn about and buy many of these great albums AND support your Community Radio.)
