    The Time Machine's Most Played Albums Of 2011







    Singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata celebrates another musical milestone this year of heavy airplay on the Maui airwaves with her latest album "Chesapeake". She's joined by heavy hitters The Bangles, Mike Viola and the Valley Isle's own Willie K. and The Throwdowns. It's the last day of 2011 and we decided to look back at our most played albums on the air for 2011 before we begin our final broadcast of the year. 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 for this 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.

    Gail Swanson's "Simple Truth", Mark Hudson's "The Artist", Nushu's "Hula", Farrah's self titled fourth album, "Galaxyland" by Maple Mars, The Rubinoos with "Automatic Toaster" and "Four" from Bleu continued with heavy spins into 2011. Other carried over artists with heavy airplay into 2011 from 2010 included Brian Ray, The Band Perry, Bruno Mars, Dave Stephens and The Doobie Brothers.

    Still rolling along after over three 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 were 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. That album continued with heavy airplay into 2011 as the entire radio staff anticipates Courtney Jaye's upcoming 2012 album release. The Time Machine Radio Crew is also waiting to hear the 2012 album release from Lisa Mychols who kept her presence on the airwaves in 2011 with her musical partner Hillary Burton from the duo Nushu with heavy airplay of their faithful cover of Phil Seymour's "Precious To Me". That cover was just a taste of Nushu's upcoming 2012 covers album.











    2011's powerhouse singles and focus tracks also came on like gangbusters with songs like "A Thousand Wonders" by Brock Walsh, "Sophisticated" from Sarina Paris, "Loud Music" by Michelle Branch, "Perfect Storm" from Sammi Morelli, Dylan McDonald & The Avians with "She Really Burns Me Up" and three artists who had more than one single getting heavy airplay; Eytan Mirsky ("Split In Two", "What You Don't Want", "The Weed In Your Garden" and "Everybody Wants Something"), Katy Perry ("Firework", "The One That Got Away" and "Last Friday Night") and the return of Emitt Rhodes ("Just Me And You", "This Wall Between Us" and "What's A Man To Do").

    Other singles from artists making an impact over Maui's airwaves included Vinnie Zummo's "Didn't Get The Memo", "Erica The Beautiful" by Agony Aunts featuring Marty Rudnick, dance diva Rikah's updated "Missing (2012)" originally from Everything But The Girl, Taylor Swift's "Mean", Melissa Otero's "Angels and Demons", "Transamerica Pyramid" by The Corner Laughers, "Darlene" from John Hunter Phillips, Maxi and Marty's cover of The Rooftop Singers 1963 number one hit "Walk Right In", "The Edge Of Glory" from Lady Gaga featuring Clarence Clemons, Tam Duong's "In The Elevator", Starr Saunders with "We Were One", Emmaline's "Swim To You" and two versions of "Saturday Delight" recorded originally by Ray Powers and given a new arrangement by Mike Fornatale. The Time Machine had a number of musical guests in 2011 and guest disc jockeys including singer-songwriter Kyle Vincent. Songwriter Elizabeth Racz, responsible for a handful of collaborations with artists that resulted in indie singles (the above mentioned songs from Vinnie Zummo, Tam Duong, Ray Powers and Mike Fornatale plus Maxi Dunn from 2010 and again in 2011), broke the guest DJ record by filling in a number of times for the vacationing radio hosts Summer Blue and Michael McCartney.

    2011 also continued for the third 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 2011 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 but the amount of music being released in 2011 brought the number of albums back up to seventy for 2011's final list of The Time Machine's most played albums on the air 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. 2011 was an awesome year for music! Don't let anyone tell you different.
