Howdy Liz! Happy FMA-day to you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Liz Berg:

Greetings folks and thanks for joining me today. Got a bazillion great songs to share with you that were added to the Free Music Archive this year.
Avatar 12:12pm (oddy):

This live set got me hooked on Peals. I tend to waver on instrumental for reasons I don't understand.
Avatar 12:14pm steve:

hi Liz. omg i love Tenniscoats
Avatar 12:16pm LeeRosevere:

hey Liz - thanks for all the support this year! I have a new album of Hold Music coming next year, inspired by you.

Just posted some links at the top of the playlist if anyone is interested in downloading tracks from the show today (and many more of my top FMA faves from the year).

Did anyone else see Shana Falana's video of WFMU DJs pronouncing her name every way possible on the air? www.facebook.com...
Avatar 12:46pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

Liz bringing Sunshine to the day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm Liz Berg:

Todd! OMG Cheyenne, mispronouncing band names is my specialty! Let's see if I can butcher it again...
  12:51pm ashley morey:

Wow it's been so long since I heard this version. the original demo of Come on Baby before we reworked it. I'm here listening with my mom and she was excitedly telling me it was me on the radio, meanwhile it took me a good 30 seconds to actually recognize the song! Haha! Thanks for playing and for making my mom's day :)

I think I wanna hold onto 2016 as long as possible considering what's coming

that really IS sad, @Ken
Avatar 1:27pm drewo:

'Crab Day' is one of my year's favorites. Thanks for another year of great music Liz and thanks for all that you do for the WFMU community.
  1:29pm JakeGould:

Hello Liz! Really liked that skronky sound on “Highest Point.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm fred:

BCBG and Eyes Behind have the same singer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Liz Berg:

Thanks @drewo and @Jake! Love those Eyes Behind tracks from the FMA, never heard them prior to this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Michael 98145:

( did someone really steal Evan Funk Davies' bottle cap collection ...? )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm fred:

@Liz: I think Eyes Behind split years ago. Water Sark is the solo project of the singer, also on the FMA: freemusicarchive.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Liz Berg:

Ahh, thanks for the info @fred! Gonna have to check out Water Sark, I'm a big fan of the BCBG/Eyes Behind lady!
  1:40pm JakeGould:

FWIW, I discovered “French Vanilla” on Bandcamp. Such a good band with only a few tracks. Nice to hear them here!
Avatar 1:42pm geezerette:

"Zsa Zsa Gabor!" ? !!! :)

I see what you did there. Nice work DJ! ✌️
Avatar 3:00pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

I went to see Rogue One on Friday and as we were waiting to get into the theater I read the news on my phone that Carrie Fisher had a heart attack and her recovery was in question. Not to be a spoiler, but as I watched Rogue One, at the very end I was crying. For real tears. My heart has taken a beating this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Michael 98145:

this year will certainly be ... unforgettable.
