The 116 Best Recordings of 2016
(Part 1 of 4)

Wednesday MidDay Medley presents part-one, of our four-week special: The 116 Best Recordings of 2016. 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 2016 we’ve played over 1000 different songs on the show, and from over 300 New & MidCoastal Releases. Over 40 of the bands and artists in our “Best of” list have actually joined us live and/or performed in our 90.1 FM studios. We’ve interviewed over 200 local and national guests. 70 of the representative recordings on our “Best of” list were MidCoastal Releases, produced by artists based here in the area. It’s all good!

Tune into 90.1 FM, Wednesdays in December, on the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th. We’ll be packing 8-hours of radio with music that represent: The 116 of Best Recordings of 2016!

This Wednesday, we’ll count down #116 through #88 of our list, with music from: Shadow Rabbits, iLLPHONiCS, Maria The Mexican, Amado Espinoza, Julian Davis And The Hay-Burners, Valley Hush, My Oh My!, The Tambourine Club, Tidy Hippy, Electric Orchids, Potter’s Field, Merlin, The Royal Furs, Vigil and Thieves, Stephonne, Wick & The Tricks, Mirina Landry, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Shearwater, Drugdealer, Lucius, Alejandro Escovedo, The Frightnrs, Birds Of Chicago, Cavern of Anti-Matter, Allah-Las, Andrew Bird, Drive-By Truckers, and Leyla McCalla.
