HUGE thanks to Gated Canal Community Radio for including my “8 Weeks” in this month’s The Wire: Adventures In Modern Music charts! The full issue is available by subscription (or maybe through your local library) here, or pop over to Twitter for a screenshot of the list.
“Ghost in the Machine,” off Music for the DMV, made it to number 15 (!) on the Dandelion Radio Festive 50, “an annual chart featuring the previous year’s best tracks, as voted for by listeners. Legendary BBC broadcaster John Peel presented the first ever Festive Fifty on Radio 1 back in 1976, and continued to do so until his death in 2004. Radio 1’s One Music show hosted the poll in 2005, before Peel’s former production team asked Dandelion Radio to become the new home of the official Festive Fifty from 2006 onwards. Listeners vote for their three favourite tracks of the year at this website for a few weeks leading up to December 1st, with the results being broadcast as part of the schedule during Christmas and New Year.”
Feeling incredibly honored to be included, and very thankful to all who voted for “Ghost in the Machine.” There are plenty more chances to hear the full 50 this month; check the schedule here.
