Really Good Radio Staions

Hi,

Your website is completely and utterly and magnificently brilliant.

Since you guys obviously know more about music than anybody :-

- Apart from Radio Caroline ( brillant ) are there any other really good internet English Speaking Radio Stations worth listening to ?

- If there are a lot, maybe it would be worth adding a page about them ?

Fantastic work guys, just fantastic !

We don't listen to a lot of internet radio stations. To be honest we all have fairly extensive music collections (Steve, for example, has 2,000 vinyl LPs) so we tend to listen to them instead.

A listing of good stations does sound like a good idea though...

Where is?

Where is Marrakesh Express or Suite: Judy Blue Eyes

Where is Crosby, Stills and Nash?

The songs you mention were not successful enough to make this list:

Crosby, Stills & Nash "Marrakesh Express" (1969) Canada 13 - Aug 1969 (7 weeks), UK 17 - Aug 1969 (9 weeks), Record World 17 - 1969, Australia Goset 21 - Sep 1969 (4 weeks), US Billboard 28 - Jul 1969 (8 weeks), Holland 36 - Aug 1969 (2 weeks), POP 74 of 1969, DDD 87 of 1969, RYM 109 of 1969

Crosby, Stills & Nash "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" (1969) DDD 6 of 1969, Canada 10 - Nov 1969 (6 weeks), Record World 18 - 1969, US Billboard 21 - Oct 1969 (12 weeks), WXPN 27, RYM 51 of 1969, nuTsie 59 of 1960s, POP 62 of 1969, Rolling Stone 418, Acclaimed 1019 (1969)

That makes "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" the 121st song of 1969 and "Marrakesh Express" the 137th. Both outside the top 100 which is the limit of what we list for each year.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young were the 826th song artists and 288th album artists. So there are pages dedicated to both their songs and albums.

However Crosby, Stills & Nash were the 621st album artists and 1769th song artists. Since we only list the top 1000 artists in each category they do get a page about the albums they released, but not about their songs.
