Hey guys. So last year/earlier this year was a nightmare to try and keep track of all the EOY countdowns from Aus Charters here on the forum, so I thought it would be a good idea to make a calendar so each person who is holding a broadcast (or even just revealing their 2016 EOY in list form) can nominate a date and time to lock in that timeslot.
Just post in this thread when you plan on revealing your countdowns and I'll add it to the calendar. And be aware of course, that it will all culminate in the grand Aus Charts Combined EOY list held and compiled by Hijinx (probably around February)!!!
Also, let me know what format the countdown will be in (list or broadcast etc.) and if it's a Top 100 or Top 50 etc. Also include any other relevant information to best demonstrate your countdown... basically what you want ppl to know about your countdown Last edited:
Everybody... make sure you answer these questions: What date? What time? What type of countdown? If broadcast... where is your countdown? How many songs in the countdown? And will you be using Aus Charts Chat through your countdown?
Mine will be on the 23rd and 24th January, the two days after harley's. It'll most likely be at 7:30pm and I'll most likely be in chat while doing the countdown. And it'll probably be a Spotify broadcast like usual. 100-51 will be on the first night and 50-1 on the next night. Last edited:
Naturally I do the countdown here however what are my options for creating a YouTube playlist that doesn't reveal the whole list and/or where can I upload these songs to, so everyone can listen countdown-style? Thanks in advance Last edited:
We officially (with the exception of a select few who have completed their lists already) kick off the season of EOY's tonight with NationOfZealots broadcasting his Top 100 of 2016 starting at 5 pm. The link is in the above post of his just above this one... there will be an Aus Charts Chat sesh going during the broadcast so make sure u fire up your EOY celebrations by joining NationOfZealots for his 2016 EOY Top 100!!! 'Tis the season for countdowns! Get pumped!
Just a heads up, I may not be able to do my broadcast on the dates that I originally put down anymore. I'm not sure yet though, hopefully I can work that out in the next few weeks. If I do change the dates I'll post in here again
Hey popmusicity, I'm going to pull mine out of 1 Jan and try for 14 Jan if that's allgood I'm going to try and do a broadcast and I'll be in chat. Just trying to figure out the broadcast thing and bring my charts up to date in my 'Personal' thread.
@Alley: All good! I've switched your time to the 14th of January... will you be using MRS to broadcast?
@Zacco: I'll leave your details as is I guess Zacco. Just let us know when u have a confirmed time for airing
@NationOfZealots: It's my pleasure to bring this together because every year I get confused about who's broadcast is when etc. lol. I'm sorry I couldn't join you last night but the booze was calling unfortunately.
@antonnalan: Could you let me know the details of your EOY so I can update your timing etc. Cheers
And i feel like there were a heap more EOY's last time around... Seems to have died off a little... If you are planning an EOY list, make sure you let us know here so we can slot it in for maximum benefit for you and everyone else. We love sharing each other's music!
@Hijinx: No worries Jinx. Anything to make it easier for that all important combined chart I feel like Aus Charts is at it's best when we are all helping each other out and sharing our music lives which is why it's a great little community and this thread does both those things!
@antonnalan: u are absolutely not being pedantic... it's actually kind of important to get the date right lol. Sorry I had them wrong in the first place... and cheers for the updated details
I will also add links to Chart Guru's current EOY countdown list, GavinScott's completed list and there were a few others I've forgotten off the tip of my head... Also a heads up that D Man has posted his list in the "Best Songs: Full Year 2016" thread.
Hey y'all. I'll be firing up my broadcast in half an hour's time. For an hour I'll be playing some of the singles that made my EOY list but not the Top 100 portion. When the countdown begins I'll be posting the entries in the chat room as well. Hope to see you there!
Just replying to the question posed by popmusicity in my personal thread.
I don't have a set time where I will be revealing my Best of for the year. I don't plan to broadcast it or anything, just plan to post it in its own little thread bit by bit, like I have in the past. Starting with the Best of the Reality Chart (which I hope to reveal before the end of Sunday tbh) and then followed by the reveal of my Top 50 albums and Top 100 singles, in sections.
I plan to have it all revealed by January 18 though.
Kicking off at 3:00 pm this afternoon is the third broadcast in the season of EOY's, Effluvium1 will be delivering his Top 100 songs of 2016! The link to the stream is in the post at the top of the page and there will be an Aus Charts chat happening as well. SO make sure you tune in for all of the 2016 music that floated Eff's boat!
My broadcast will be on Dubtrack, a site where you can broadcast and play a preset list of songs and videos. You can, as a result, broadcast accompanying music videos from Youtube and there is also an inbuilt chat function. So while I will be sitting in Aus Charts, it would be best for all if you made a quick account (you can make one with your Facebook/Twitter account if you have one and feel open to do so and there is email also) so we could all join the fun and frivolity together.
My broadcast will start at 5pm with an hour of songs that missed my EOY and then #100-#51 will commence from 6pm.
Tune in for the conclusion of Timfoxxy's EOY 100 tonight from 6 pm AEST (5 pm Brisbane time :p). Peppered with an eclectic bunch of pop/dance/electronic music and a dash of alternative in the first half of the countdown, the final 50 songs are sure to get the pulses racing as we surge towards his #1 song of the year!

I'm going to stake my claim on next Monday, the 16th! I'll still be figuring out how I'm streaming it, but it will be a full top 100 stream, and we'll start at 4pm AESDT. It goes for 6hrs and 10mins, so the top 50 if you want join later will be from roughly 7pm.
Hey unfortunately I am without a computer and therefore without all my music to do my broadcast so I'm gonna need to postpone at this stage. Hopefully can still do it just need to wait for my computer to be fixed. Cheers.
as Hijinx & 392 pointed out to me, there is a slight schedule clash with the weekend of the 28th/29th January for me. We don't know when the JJJ Lower 100 will be scheduled for, and based on recent form it will likely be for that weekend.
PMC - can you please add me as a tentative for the 29th as well as the 28th, and then I'll amend whichever date once the Lower 100 gets announced?
Woooooooooo!!! Today is my EOY broadcast day... and I'm planning a massive day ahead. From 12:30 pm Midday AEST it all kicks off, with a steady stream of music from last year's countdown and some personal favourites of mine to get the mood started. Then at 1:45 pm AEST the pre-show begins with songs that I loved but couldn't quite fit into my Top 100 before leading into the main event at 4:15 pm AEST when the Top 100 countdown begins!!! The Top 50 will begin at around 7:20 pm AEST where I will take over the mic and deliver my thoughts radio announcer style... I hope my voice isn't too irritating There will be sound grabs from some artists throughout the Top 35 and of course the chat will light up with some music games in which I've incorporated into all my broadcasts that the participants seem to enjoy... just to keep the chat from going stale is all! Then once the #1 is revealed, we will go straight onto the post show with some brand new music I'm digging at the moment, including some just released tracks from Arcade Fire, personal favourite Rationale, Tinie Tempah/Tinashe, The Chainsmokers, Snakehips and even Sam and the Womp! just to name a few... so join in whenever you like because it'll be nigh on 12 hours of constant streaming for you to tune into at your leisure! Can't wait to chat to you all this afternoon! Get KEEEEN!
