I've been creating daily Radio Hannibal Spotify sessions for a few years now. And on special occasions, commemorative playlists in conjunction with whatever event it might be. Some listeners have asked me where they can find old sets as they won't be found on my Spotify page of playlists which mostly consist of best of the years. Keeping these daily playlists on there would be overwhelming for me.
A few years ago I started using a site called Playlists.net. I post my daily playlist there while also posting to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. The beauty of it is a simple search of "radio hannibal" will bring up the lot. I'm talking 28 pages of playlists of mine. Happy listening.
Being a music geek I'm forever making lists. Have you not seen the movie High Fidelity?
I belong to message boards full of others who are musically afflicted and it's there that we create and share our lists, then combining them into one consensus statement for all others to behold.
Anyway, I just had to compile a list of my favorite Grateful Dead songs. I'm sometimes asked, "who do you listen to more than anyone else?". I was kind of shocked when it first struck me that, hands down, it's the Grateful Dead. I listen to at least one live show every week. This, from a guy who really couldn't tolerate them, or at least didn't get them even back in college.
It occurred to me what an awesome and large catalog of songs to choose from when I pieced this top 20 together. As with all lists, keep in mind that there is a fluidity to them. That means I can change my mind from one day to the next. Ha.

Spotify is working fast and furious on adding new features to its streaming music service in preparation for battle against Apple Music which debuts on June 30. The latest is something called Rewind. Here's the story from Venture Beat, Spotify’s new Rewind feature builds playlists from the past.
The way it works is you choose three artists you love. Then an algorithm goes to work coming up with playlists across five separate decades that are based on those three artists.
I'd love to try it but for the life of me I can't find the darn thing on either my iOS app or desktop app. I'll let you know when I do or someone please guide me to it.
