Favourite Releases of 2016
 

ImageHere are my choices for my favourite releases of 2016. It was a very good year.  You'll also see a second list of very worthy recordings.   These came about after listening to 500+ recordings from 29 different countries and too many artists to count (well, I could but the music is what counts.)  I hope you find (or have found) some music you like.

Newsflash!

THE RETURN OF TAINT RADIO

Taintradio.org is coming back!  Yes, indeed!  After a nine or so months period of dormancy and reorganization, the intrepid band of independent producers are coming back to the galaxy with the same mission as before:  independent and unstructured programming, no suits, hired guns and managers, presented by an international group of passionate music mavens dedicated to the music they play.

Taint Radio has undergone a shift in the structure of the alliance;  it will be more of a co-operative to ease the burden of the organizers, and it's making other subtle changes that won't affect the programming.  Taint has been going through some beta testing processes and is currently streaming some older shows while the actual broadcast schedule comes together.

Taint recognized that its previous audience -- eight plus years of proof and one Internet Radio Station of the Year award -- enjoyed the music, and its goal is to continue in exactly the same direction, and still without ads, commercial sponsorship, and the usual flotsam and jetsam of terrestrial radio.

Everyone working to get taintradio.org back to its rightful place as one of the great listening spots on the web is hopeful that it will get the same support as before.  Tell your friends about taintradio.org. Check us out now!! (One Man's Jazz as always will be available at www.onemansjazz.ca. )

SCHEDULE:

Weekly new show:  Thursday 9 pm  repeated Monday 4 am

Archived Shows:  Sunday 4 pm, Tuesday 9 pm, Friday 7 am

Eastern Time Zone.

Show

One Man's Jazz is heading back to taintradio.org, but nothing much is going to change at www.onemansjazz.ca.  The shows will be available here as well.  And yes the One Man's Jazz Facebook page will continue with show previews and postings of note.  So there will be some options to listen to One Man's Jazz.  Stream or save shows at this site, or listen via taintradio.org.  Either way, the content is as it should be:  about the music and the musicians who make it.
