Echoes Poll Opens-John Diliberto’s Top Ten


 I submitted Top Ten lists to Echoes affiliate WXPN, in the beginning of November.

Personally, I think polls are a blast.  I love reading the albums that other DJs, critics and personalities have created.  Whether they affirm my own tastes and opinions or elicit a WTF reaction, it serves as something of a compass to what’s happening out in the world and in other people’s heads.

My Top Ten Lists can change from one minute to the next.  Here’s the list I came up with for WXPN.

1 – Agnes Obel – Philharmonics

    Pumped Up Kicks, John? I love it! Nice touch. And of course you must be referring to the Butch Clancy dubstep remix, right? My kids and I watched the YouTube video a few (thousand) times:

    It’s to bad I missed the name of a song I heard on “Echoes.”
    I very much wish I could have remember that song’s name or creator’s name!
