This Sunday, December 27th, This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl will present our annual countdown show, playing back what we played a lot over the course of these past twelve months. Stats are provided for us by the mighty Fritz Van Leaven, who has been named to the Permanently Nice List by ol' Santa Claus himself. Dana and I look forward to these year-end countdowns, and we couldn't even begin to do them without Fritz.
The countdown shows are a showcase of our most-played individual tracks. Fritz also prepares stats for our most-played artists, and we occasionally include some of those artist stats in our countdown show, if there's enough time for them. Not this year! This year's countdown is a whompin' stompin' 58 tracks, which we're somehow going to program into a single three-hour radio show. Yes, it's a post-Christmas miracle. Meanwhile, we'll give the artists their due in this spot instead. Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to present:
