As we look back on the soundscape of the last 12 months, one thing is clear: our curators have been busy this year! FMA has reached new heights in recognition, use, traffic, and killer playlists! One of our most dedicated and regular mixmakers is LizB, who often peppers her weekly WFMU radio broadcast with FMA tracks, and she broadcast 3 hours of FMA tunes to wrap up 2016. Liz's show happens every Tuesday afternoon from 12-3pm Eastern, which you can listen to as an FMA playlist (featured every week on our iOS app and at the bottom of the main page), in the WFMU archive or subscribe to it, since it's also distributed as a podcast. She also created a monstrous mix of her TOP 100 tracks!

Rather than "Top [insert number] Best Albums of 2015" we've decided to take a different angle. Rather than ranking tracks or adding unnecessary 'clout' to specific albums, artists, or songs, we're sharing these in no particular order. You can decide which ones you like best!
This is the final mix of 2015 retrospective blends, so gear up for our regularly scheduled programming.
Now, a bit about this mix, and who made it:
This playlist was created by one of our most avid mix-makers, LizB (also a WFMU DJ and podcaster extraordinaire). These are fifteen choicest bits, culled from her impressive megamix of more than 100 songs from 2015, which you can find here! Every week, Liz shares a selection of her new faves from the constantly-updating "Recently Added" queue on FMA.
Liz shared with us her methodology for finding her new favorite tunes on FMA on Radio Free Culture's 39th episode, "Inside LizB's Playlist Labyrinth."
Tune in using our handy sidebar player or check out the playlist page. Hooray!
