This Year has produced a memorial best-of for Ryan. It's just over two hours long and contains some of Ryan's best moments on The HotSpot and the Giant Bombcast. You can download the MP3 here (Direct link/RSS/iTunes also).
I am glad to present to you today an assembly of some of his most memorable moments selected by his fans and by listeners to our program. What we’ve got for you here is pretty simple: it’s two hours worth of Ryan at his best. Along with the more memorable moments you guys picked out I dug into my vault and selected some deep cuts that tend to go overlooked. You’ll hear stuff from 2006 all the way up to 2013. I’ve done my best to make it as streamlined as possible—I didn’t want this to just be another six-hour Bombcast best-of; this is a celebration of Ryan and all that he gave to us.
Right now it’s relatively bare-bones—just clips played in the way I’ve ordered them—and I say that because I’m working on a second version of this memorial show that will include songs off Ryan’s Summer Jams playlist. I want to produce something that we’ll be able to keep on our MP3 players; something to put on while driving, something to put on when it’s summer time. If you’ve listened to our best-ofs for the program Blue Jam, that should give you an idea of what I’m going for: basically just songs sandwiched between each clip. It’s something that’ll take a while though, because it takes thought and engineering and most crucially time, so while I work on it a little bit each day, here’s a plainer version of that, again, just two hours of clips. Also for old-times sake I’ve included some songs by the Suburban All-Stars. I hope that you enjoy it and I hope that it serves as a good reflection of how important and beloved Ryan was. He will certainly be missed, but he leaves behind a tremendous legacy that ensures he will never be forgotten.
