    The Time Machine's Most Played Albums Of 2010




    It's the last day of 2010 and we decided to look back at our most played albums on the air for 2010. 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.







    Alice Peacock's album "Love Remains" from 2009 along with "The Good Stuff" from Schuyler Fisk, Gail Swanson's "Simple Truth", Mark Hudson's "The Artist", "A Watched Pot" from Bleu, Anya Marina's "Slow and Steady Seduction: Phase II", "Under The Covers Vol. 2" from Susanna Hoffs & Matthew Sweet, and Mandy Moore's "Amanda Leigh" from the same year continued with heavy spins into 2010. Other carried over artists with heavy airplay into 2010 from 2009 included Anny Celsi, Kyle Vincent, Lisa Donnelly, Erin McCarley, Amy Hanaiali'i, Jason Falkner, Anuhea, The Throwdowns, Adrina Thorpe, James Carter Cathcart, Maxi Dunn and Diane Birch.






    Still rolling along after over two years in heavy rotation was 2008's monster 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. The Time Machine Crew was honored to have the opportunity to share with our radio audience the wonderful songs off of "The Exotic Sounds Of Courtney Jaye" from Courtney Jaye for nearly two years before it surfaced for public consumption. The audience loves her style and the year 2010 finally saw the official CD and digital release of her self described "TropiCali sound" that is an incredible blend of country, California rock, Hawaiian music, folk and other genres that put together make up a sound that creates an atmosphere of pure pop bliss. Kelly Jones and her third album "SheBANG!" from 2008 also gave The Time Machine Crew plenty of musical joy on the airwaves for two solid years just in time to embrace her summer of 2010 duo release with Mike Viola titled "Melon". 2010's powerhouse singles and focus tracks also came on like gangbusters with Brian Ray's "I Found You" and "You Take My Troubles Away" from Rachael Yamagata & Dan Wilson followed by Michael Bublé's "Haven't Met You Yet" (returning from 2009 with even a heavier rotation the second time around), Farrah's "Swings & Roundabouts", "This Year's Gonna Be Our Year" by Eytan Mirsky, Palmdale's "Here Comes Summer", Dave Stephen's "Josephine", "Dirty Girl" from Parthenon Huxley & Kyle Vincent as the duo Huxley & Vincent, "Got Your Number" by My Eleventh Fantasy, "Best Actress" from Stratocruiser, Ray Paul paying tribute to Emitt Rhodes with a cover of "'Til The Day After", Brian Ray again with both "Saturday In The Sun" and "Happy Ending" along with Cee-Lo Green's "F*%@ You" bleeped filled catchy chorus filling the airwaves for the last five months only to be moved aside by the stinging digital single that was a Maxi Dunn & Elizabeth Racz collaboration simply titled "Why".








    2010 also continued for the second year in a row as "The Year of Shave Ice" for The Time Machine Crew, including one our of own disc jockeys spending most of the year during the weekends, behind the counter serving shave ice...but that's a story for another time.

    The albums below are actual titles that were released in 2010 that dominated our playlists.






    2008 had nearly seventy albums with that number cut in half for 2009. 2010 had a large number of spins for fifty albums in no particular ranking outside of the first fifteen selections.








    Let's kick it off with the fifteen 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 but be aware that the remaining albums on this list were only about one or two spins away from getting into the tied position so it's really amazing that we got to play all of these artist so heavily in rotation for the year. 2010 was an awesome year for music! Don't let anyone tell you different.
