6 CFNY Year-End Countdowns (1994-1996 and 1998-2000)

Last summer I stumbled upon a very good site called SpiritOfRadio.ca.  It’s an unofficial tribute to a very important radio station in Canada.  Broadcasting on FM 102.1 in the Southern Ontario area, CFNY was one of the first truly maverick stations in the country.  It found its footing in the late 70s and early 80s when it mostly played cutting edge or alternative music.  If you loved Elvis Costello, Iggy Pop and Gang Of Four, to name but 3 examples, CFNY was likely the only station that played their music.   (Check out the site for more information.  It’s loaded with lists, testimonials, history and even a chatroom.)
On July 1st, 2005, the first day I looked at the site, I noticed that it was missing some year-end countdown lists, mainly from the 1990s.  Instantly, I headed for the closet.
For several years I would get up before 9 a.m. on either New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day to follow CFNY’s annual album countdowns.  After forgetting about tuning into the 1993 year-end countdown I made it a point to not miss any of the others.  As a result, I have complete charts from 1994 to 2000.  (In 2001, CFNY went back to doing a year-end singles countdown and I lost interest.  Here’s hoping that, in the future, they go back to counting down the albums of the year rather than just individual songs.)
I rooted around my closet and found several countdown charts that I had written down.  I decided to fire off an email.  I expressed appreciation for the site, offered some corrections for their existing lists and painstakingly listed all the entries for 6 year-end countdowns covering the years 1994-1996 and 1998-2000.  (On their site, they ask for completed charts that are missing from the Charts and Lists section.)
I never heard back and never wrote back.  The charts I emailed were never posted – neither were the corrections I sent – and I felt like a total dick because I had spent an hour or two typing up those damn charts, all for nothing.
It’s been nearly a year, I’m tired of waiting and I’ve decided on a different course of action.  I am presenting 6 missing countdowns that you won’t find anywhere else on the Internet.  Presented in chronological order, these are the top 102 CDs of 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000, according to the CFNY listeners who voted for them.  Normally, something like this would be found under Lists, a section of my website that remains blank because I still have no idea what to do with it.  Unfortunately, you can only do 100 items per list and as you’ll see, each list has 102 entries.  That’s why they’re here.
Here’s hoping this will lead to these charts finally being added to spiritofradio.ca, which is where they belong.
