For the 9th time, here’s how it works:

– Any members of the RR Community, old & new (Including quitters, splitters & fence sitters), can join in by selecting their 3 favourite songs of 2016 (or very late 2015) & rank them. New songs from the year preferred, rather than a 2016 deluxe reissue from back-in-the-day. In short, our mutated version of John Peel’s famous end of year listener selected favourites.

– Send your secret ballot, along with mp3’s or mp3 links to shoemail@cfl.rr.com. We could Spotify the thing, but historically folks seem to want to lay their hands on some mp3’s. One at time seems to work best if sending mp3 files by e-mail.

Within a few days to a week, you should get confirmation back that your choices are entered. If someone has beaten you to something you can make a replacement pick – vote early to make your 1st picks stick (& help me avoid a last minute Xmas rush).

Once we’re done bouncing e-mails, results will be playlisted on the ‘Spill, sometime(s) before Christmas. Let me know in comments what days & times will work best for most of you. It would be nice to have some shared listening time together – something we’ve gotten worse at in recent years (although it is a busy time of year).
