Seize The Day - Rick's Picks 2015 - The Best Radio You Have Never Heard - Vol. 276

Compiled, Mixed and Edited by Perry Bax


After a full ten years now, BRYHNH producer Rick From New York once again steps into the spotlight for what has developed into one of every year's most anticipated shows; Rick's retrospective of all the tracks played on BRYHNH from the previous year, affectionately known as Rick's Picks.

Now to be sure, this is no ordinary "end of year Best Of list." This is Rick From New York meticulously sifting through Volumes 249 - 273 and picking the finest tracks, new and old, that graced the BRYHNH feed from the past year.
And again, Rick has picked a list of winners like only Rick can. So I present to you; 

Seize The Day - Rick's Picks 2015 - The Best Radio You Have Never Heard - Vol. 276

We now join Rick in progress . . .

Anything worth doing is worth doing for 10 years. Did I get that right?

Regardless, welcome to the 10th anniversary edition of Rick's Picks, or more formally, "Seize The Day - Rick's Picks for 2015 - The Best Radio You Have Never Heard Vol. 276."

Tradition or habit, at this point it hardly matters. It just is what it is. And here it is:
One thing I've learned in my 10 years at the helm of this edition, is that it's always a challenge, and a pleasure at the same time.

Lots of ch-ch-changes in music this year, including a world-shaking event (the loss of Mr. Bowie), which I thought might derail my humble contribution. I should have known better.

I suggested to Mr. Bax that I would be fine with retooling Rick's Picks to observe the passing, or to kick the whole volume down the road two weeks. In response, in the early morning hours of 1/11/16, I received this three-word reply:

"I got this..."

Later that same day, the masterful "Vol. 275, "Man of a Thousand Faces" appeared. 
It is because of this "Seize the Day" spirit that Mr. Bax is still the one who can make BRYHNH shine like a new penny, on the run AND under pressure. All I have to do is show up after my New Year's Eve hangover has worn off to cherry-pick what is already the best radio you have never heard.

Thanks, Perry! 

Rick from New York
