Options January 3, 2017: New year, new location: my first show on the Give The Drummer Radio Stream, woot! Celebrating with a radio roundup of some of my favorite music from 2016.

This is NOT a "Best of 2016" collection; this is simply a passel of songs and artists which caught my attention and demanded repeated listenings. They are in no particular order, not ranked, and certainly not a complete picture of everything I enjoyed in the past 12 months. This roundup also has no compilations and no reissues of old material, because otherwise I'd be here spinning for you all ding-dong day. Happy new year, and enjoy!

Hi hi!

Ken, you found me, hooray! I was hiding over here, very sneaky-like.

100% welcome, Mary!

Thanks, Doug! Go back to sleep now! :-)

Good morning Whatever people. We are all sorted, then?
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 6:28am Mary Wing:

Hello, guy! I think so, all the plates are spinning at the same time.
  Tue. 1/3/17 6:33am Doug Schulkind:

They should perform more formal concert halls as 75 Dollar William.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 6:36am Scraps:

h'lo hey
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 6:39am Scraps:

also hi
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 6:39am Mary Wing:

Scraps! You're still up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 6:40am Scraps:

My schedule is nonexistent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 6:41am Scraps:

(but I'm lying down, listening to GTDS)

Rust (and Scraps) never sleeps.

Good morning Mary and all

Hi Fred, thanks for being here!
  Tue. 1/3/17 6:48am Alf From Upstate:

This guy is pretty good. Does he have any other records out?
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 6:48am Mary Wing:

Heh. One or two...

First notable death of 2017: John Berger.
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 6:53am Jeff Golick:

Berger is a blow. This new show on the stream helps, though. Hi, Mary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 6:55am Scraps:

I think the next several years are going to be full of deaths; we thought 2016 was unusual, but it's probably the Boomers dying off, peaking
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 6:56am Mary Wing:

Hi Jeff, glad to be here!
  Tue. 1/3/17 6:59am Doug Schulkind:

I forget the statistic. Something like 10,000 people a day will reach the age of 65 for the next 25 years. Something like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 7:03am annie:

good morning!! i think i'm going to like this "choices" thing for radio. hey scraps, i'd say at least another 40 years for us to die off.
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 7:08am Mary Wing:

Morning, annie! Happy new year to you and all the fine folks here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 7:10am annie:

i'm tickled pink by the rate at which the spots are filling in the GTDS stream. very satisfying!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 7:11am Ken From Hyde Park:

I have not yet donned my Tuesday finery. Will get right on that.
  Tue. 1/3/17 7:16am Jesse k:

Morning, welcome to the stream side Mary!
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 7:17am Mary Wing:

Thanks, Jesse!
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 8:14am Doug Schulkind:

Aqua splatter. I just felt the need to say that.
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 8:15am Mary Wing:

It's a beauty thing, verily.
  Tue. 1/3/17 8:35am MONEYBAG$:

Finally, someone calls out the cool kids
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 8:49am Brian in UK:

Hello Mary, in lieu of nothing, I was playing Hall & Oats' War Babies the other day. Screaming thru Deceember still does it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 8:51am Brian in UK:

By the by, Mary. It is Sir Ray Davies now.
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 8:54am Mary Wing:

Sir? He got knighted or something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 8:57am Brian in UK:

Yup, in the NY honours list.
Avatar Tue. 1/3/17 8:58am Doug Schulkind:

Mary Wing has hit the Drummer Stream fan: Agua Splatter!! So happy to have you in the family, Mary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/3/17 8:59am Ken From Hyde Park:
