penguinsAll of the residents compiled their "Best of" for 2010, which was another fun year of music for BZ!  We had our monthly Swig Happy Hours which are now defunct but during the time this year they were an absolute blast.  We have (thanks to Peek) run a weekly happy hour at Blowfish San Francisco called Caipi Hour.  We threw a fun filled event at Red Devil Lounge with Karmacoda, Weather Pending and Shine!  That was a highlight in Below Zero's history... oh yea... we also turned 5 years old.

But we couldn't have done any of it without the Labels and Artists which provide us with the backbone of the show... music.  We also wouldn't be anywhere without our core listeners who are so supportive.

When it comes to the world of chillout there is a lot of competition out there for radio shows.  There are some serious strong ones which we respect very much, and everyone here at Below Zero would reach out to grow bigger but we like our simple organic way of growing.  You don't see us promoting all over social media or blasting you with emails or even trying to force you to join a group.  No, we just simply exist and occasionally we send out a blast to remind you we are here.  I guess you could say our way of promotion is on the "chill" tip... if you want to find us you will.

This leads me to those of you who have found us and stuck with us, we are sending out our best version of a hug which is to assemble all of our residents and ask each one to put together their Top 20 best tracks of 2010.  I would safely say that our crew is one of the top crews in the world when it comes to consistent downbeat mixes and shows.  Are there others, of course there are, without question.  But!  From my view in my little corner of the world I would like to tip my hat to my own crew of residents who are talented and dedicated all year long.  We have also added Dave Ralph the one and only Dave Ralph in 2011 to the mix!

With all that I would like to thank you all for your suport throughout 2010, have a safe and happy holiday everybody and we'll see you in the new decade!
