On Wednesday, 1/2/08, Webcaster Dan Herman announced his list of the top 100
independent-label/unsigned acts of 2007 to receive airplay on the long-running Internet
radio program Radio Crystal Blue. This list was generated by Mr. Herman, the program's
creator and patron of indepedently released music. http://www.radiocrystalblue.com
Mr. Herman's weekly radio show, Radio Crystal Blue, presents a unique look at both artists
on indepedent labels and those that are just surfacing in popularity on the Internet. Shows
are broadcast live on the Live365 network, Sunday evenings, from New York. Podcast
versions, as well as streaming audio of archived shows, are kept for several weeks after the
Wildflower Records alternative-country artist Amy Speace earned her first #1 position,
having received the most airplay and exposure in 2007 on Radio Crystal Blue. Her CD
"Songs For Bright Street" was released in 2006. Alternative rock duo Sirsy, who have just
released their 9th disc "Revolution", earned 2nd place. Acoustic recording artist Christine
Havrilla (Boxrilla Music label) took 3rd place, largely on the strength of her 2007 CD,
The annual airplay chart is an amalgamation of Mr. Herman's quarterly airplay charts,
which track progressive amounts of airplay over a 3- and 12-month period. The remainder
of the top 10 of this list include: #4: Lourds (Breaking Records); #5: Tim Blane; #6: Amber
Rubarth; #7: Taylor Davis; #8: Greg Klyma; #9: Ruth Gerson (Tompkins Square Records);
#10: Catie Curtis (Compass Records).
In addition, Mr. Herman announces his list of top 10 CDs released in 2007. At the number
one position is "Revolution" by Sirsy. Included in the top 10 are, #2: "Clockwork", by Tim
Blane, and #3: "Slow Southern Swing", by Taylor Davis
Mr. Herman further updated his list of all-time top recording artists as heard on his show.
Replacing the incumbent, MPress Records recording artist Rachael Sage, is Talisman
Records recording artist Natalia Zukerman.
All 3 lists along with other notes about his top favorites can be read at
