Ep. #322: 2015 Wrap-Up (Part One)

Beardfish – +4626-ComfortZone

Here it is, the big one! Or at least the first part of it. A nice long look back at the amazing year in music that was 2015. The original plan called for a 4 or 5 hour extended show. Then I decided to do a full 6 hours over two weeks. Finally, in order to truly include everything I had wanted, and that others had submitted, I decided to extend both year-end shows to four hours. This episode runs over by about 5 minutes, and I feel next week could certainly go longer! So much amazing music to review.

A huge thank you to everyone who made the show possible over the year. From the bands making the beautiful music, to the promoters who help get it to my ears, to the station and everyone involved there that give me a platform to further promote the music. Then of course is all the wonderful people listening live, chatting, and podcasting to give me the drive and the market for the show. And of course a special thank you to all those who came out tonight to chat to put the special into this extra special show.

Next week (Jan. 6) we’ll continue the 2015 wrap-up fun, and then be back to the usual grind, but not before our January Music Mixer goes live on Saturday, January 9th. Jeff Teets from MindMaze will be our first guest in the Music Mixer series, and we’ll be covering topics including Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Avantasia, crowdfunding rewards, concept albums, and comeback albums.
