KXCI’s Annual Top 100 Countdown

December 28, 2017
SUPPORT

This Friday, December 29th, from 7am to 6pm, KXCI held its Annual Top 100 Countdown. We analyzed all the station playlists during 2017 and crunched the numbers to determine the 100 most played albums. KXCI DJs then started at 100 and worked their way to 1. DJs also infused their favorite notable musical moments and honored performers who passed away during 2017. We are particularly pleased to note that 15 Local Artists are in the Top 100.  You can also check out individual playlists from December 29th here or listen to a playback of programming here for up to 2 weeks.
