Brentwood's Only Alternative in 2010 - 469 bands and 1,415 songs later

It's that time again when I go through my stats for the year!

In 2010 I played 469 bands - down 14 on 2009. I played 1,341 songs, down 74 on the previous year (I must have had about 4 hours less airtime).

The most popular artists played were SKY LARKIN who received 24 plays, closely followed by THE JOY FORMIDABLE who were played 23 times and BETTIE SERVEERT who were played 18 times.

The Joy Formidable and British Sea Power were in my top ten in both 2010 and 2009 - and British Sea Power were also in the top ten for 2008. (With their new album coming out next week they might make it four years in a row).

I'm not going to list every song I played but the most popular were:

1. Bettie Serveert - Deny All (12 plays)
2. Joy Formidable - Popinjay (10 plays)
3. Good Shoes - Under Control (8 plays)
=4. Brownies - Fox Force Five (7 plays)
=4. Death of The Elephant - Trypticon (7 plays)
=4. Echobelly - Molotov (7 plays)
=4. Erland and the Carnival - The Derby Ram (7 plays)
=4. Rose Elinor Dougall - Carry On (7 plays)
=4. Sky Larkin - Matador (7 plays)
=4. Sky Larkin - Still Windmills (7 plays)
