imagesOur 2016 playlist is now at Spotify. We will be adding a bunch of new music in the next few days so check it out. I get asked constantly why we are using Spotify. Personally I would prefer my iTunes downloads and cds but the reality is that streaming sites like Spotify are the wave of the future. I came to that realization when I discovered that certain Chevrolet vehicles like the Sonic and Spark don’t have a cd player and manufacturers like Hyundai are eliminating the player from every vehicle they make……

Here is a link to my 2016 playlist (there are a few others available as well). It includes new music from David Bowie, Sia and Elton John plus artists like Field Music, School of Seven Bells and Wire (one of my favorite bands; don’t know how I missed their 2015 album) https://open.spotify.com/user/daa.com/playlist/5NNqBtJNKeuF4aVAlGC8dd.
