    The Time Machine's Most Played Albums Of 2009




    It's the last day of 2009 and we decided to look back at our most played albums on the air for 2009. Everyone argued over a top ten or one hundred list because there were so many choices. We decided that instead of bickering over different music choices (and trust us...this is what we love to do...bicker about movies and music), we would present to you our most played albums on the air last year. This way there was no wiggle room for critical favorites. The funny part was that after the list was completed, everyone gathered around, smiled and agreed that these albums did fill our hearts and souls musically and that's all that matters in the end.







    Mike Viola's album "Lurch" from 2007 along with "She's About To Cross My Mind" from The Red Button, Ken Sharp's "Sonic Crayons" and Mandy Moore's "Wild Hope" from the same year continued with heavy spins into 2009. Still rolling along after over three years in heavy rotation was 2006's "Under The Covers Vol. 1" from Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs which continued to get massive airplay into 2009 just in time to welcome "Under The Covers Vol. 2". The monster album of all airplay from the previous year was the double album "Elephants...Teeth Sinking Into Heart" from Rachael Yamagata and her songs dominated the airplay as did Anya Marina's "Slow & Steady Seduction: Phase II" which we didn't realize at the time was not officially released until the following year and we were spinning an advance promo copy like the happy music campers that we are. Kelly Jones and her third album "SheBANG!" from 2008 also gave The Time Machine Crew plenty of musical joy on the airwaves into 2009. The other two remaining albums from 2008 that continued to get heavy airplay throughout 2009 on The Time Machine were the many eclectic arrangements from producer Robin Danar's album "Altered States" (with artists as varied as Quincy Coleman, Pete Yorn & Kinky, Jim Bianco, Rachael Yamagata, Inara George, Julianna Raye, Jesca Hoop, Lisa Loeb with Steve Reynolds and other talented artists that make this album a must have for any music lover) and She & Him's "Volume One" from M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel. We've been spinning their latest singles "Thieves" and "In The Sun" that have us looking forward to the upcoming March release of "Volume Two" from She & Him.











    2009 also ended up as "The Year of Shave Ice" for The Time Machine Crew...but that's a story for another time.

















    The albums below are actual titles that were released in 2009 that dominated our playlists.






    2008 had nearly seventy albums so with that number cut in half for 2009, it's a large number of spins for thirty-two albums in no particular ranking outside of the first five choices.








    Let's kick it off with the five most played albums hands down over any other this past year on "The Time Machine"...we were pleased to see that these albums all tied at the number one spot.
