Whatever Gets You Through The White. Prevalent Events In February And Beyond.













Maximum January Global Views of Corby's Orbit

Illustration by Eric Hibbeler

Viewing of my blog has gone just plain 
bazonkers this month, due in part to the
posting of my Top 50 disks of 2015
which drew in a record 840 hits, and more every day.

If you are on that list, Radio Regent has extended your audience to Ukraine, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates this month.

Since New Year's Day we have also exposed major new disks by Lynn Miles, Matt Andersen, Mimi Oz, Matt Patershuk, Dylan Menzie, Quincy Bullen and Corinna Rose to an internet worldview.

At 3500 January views the Orbit is experiencing an increased longitude of the ascending node and further beneficial perturbations and anomalies are anticipated.

With the deadline approaching, 10 selected discs from my top 50 of 2015 are still available to you as prizes if you will just take the time to list your top ten albums of 2015 in the comments section of this post.
Hint: You need to become  follower in the top right corner first.
