My Personal Albums Of The Year 2017

My personal favourite albums of the year proved to be a lengthy list this year. I thought there were was a lot of great music released this year. So I decided to do something different this year. Because of the radio show I tend to be exposed to quite a lot of artists from the UK. It is by far not the only country of origin for me but a result of the show. So I figured I would do something a little different and separate the albums into two categories, the UK and ROW (rest of the world). Agree with my choices or not but I hope you enjoy.

The 2017 Festive 50 Part 1! Show tracks for Sat. Dec. 23/17

The show is really a dual special presentation. Firstly we spend a little time on a few seasonal songs mixed in with a general assortment of tracks from yesteryear. We opened with a tribute to Kirsty MacColl. Not to put a damper on the season but to celebrate her talent.
In the second half of the show we turn things over to the Festive 50 and begin the countdown. Since 50 artists is to much for one show we split it over two shows. This is part one, where we feature the first third (or so) of the countdown. Enjoy! Don't forget to join us next week for the finale of the 2017 Festive 50 countdown.

Has this station or show played your artists or music? Then maybe say a quick thanks and make a small pledge. CJAM is a small volunteer driven campus/community station in a sea of corporate interests and we need to ask you to help once a year instead of playing annoying commercials all day long.
