CHIRP Radio Best of 2017

Throughout December, CHIRP Radio presents its volunteers’ top albums of 2017. Our next list is from DJ and Features Director Amelia Hruby.

I'm on air bright and early every Tuesday morning, and each week from 8-9am CT I host Girl Power Hour -- an hour-long set featuring music by women, femmes, LGBTQIA+ individuals, non-binary and gender non-conforming persons, and girl power allies. I started Girl Power Hour over two years ago now, but with this year's political climate/chaos, I feel like the effort to center marginazlied voices has been more important than ever. Plus, it's a blast to host and has helped me make the best of challenging times. This 2017 best of list is a compilation of 2017's most-played Girl Power Hour anthems. They're in no particular order (because competitive hierarchies are for patriarchy, etc.), but I reserved the first half of the list for some of my favorite locals.

CHIRP Radio Best of 2017Throughout December, CHIRP Radio presents its volunteers’ top albums of 2017. Our first list for this year is from Features Director Dylan Peterson.

Weird year, right? I've been tweeting Jens Lekman lyrics for as long as I've had a a Twitter, because he says everything better than I ever could. So, here's some from his song, "Postcard #22"...

Yeah it's a fucked up world, put your jacket on and be brave
The market wants you to work yourself into the grave
But be a punk at least in spirit
Reject the stick and the carrot
And never let yourself be enslaved
And keep dancing
Don't ever stop the dreaming -JL

Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesComing Soon: CHIRP Radio’s Best Albums of 2017!

2017 is almost over. In some ways, it can't end soon enough. In other ways, it will be remembered as a historic year of change, not the least of which involves a certain community radio station taking to the airwaves.

And of course, it's been another increedible year for all kinds of music. No matter what else the year brings, you can count on the fact there is always new music to bring into your life. With thousands of singles and albums released, it's far too much for one person to take in, let alone evaluate.

Fortunately, we at CHIRP have a fix for that. Every December, each of our volunteers has the chance to create their own Best Albums of the Year list. We'll be posting all of them throughout the month on this blog. Then, using a secret time-tested formula, we'll pick out the most-cited records and present them to you on New Years Eve as our combined CHIRP Radio Best Albums of 2017 list.

We'll kick it off on Monday, December 4th. There will be music you've heard and lots you haven't - perhaps some musical gift ideas for yourself or someone you know...? Check back all month and drink it all in. Your ears will thank you.
