Web Producer Michael Wells launched The Current's Top 89 of 2007 yesterday, and I'm stealing some time to really get into it this morning. Thanks to the Musicheads I even remember some trivia about the new releases...
Anyway, if you didn't participate last year the Top 89 is your chance to vote on your favorite albums from this year's CDs. It works like this:
1) The Current lists the albums they played on the air during 2007.
2) You register or login to pick your faves, which count as votes...
3) We take a deep breath and do the math!
Then The Current kicks off 2008 with the best of 2007 as chosen by you. Seriously, they'll play each of the Top 89 listener picks starting at 10 a.m. on New Year's Day. It easily beats multiple and annoying spins of Auld Lang Syne.
But wait, there's more! Everyone who votes (and is eligible according to the official rules) is entered into a drawing for a 16 gig iPod Touch + 89 iTunes downloads.
There's still more! You can compare your faves to the staff picks.
