This is just a reminder to bands and labels that we've started accepting lists for our end of the year awards. If you'd like to participate, we ask that you send your top 10 CDs that were released in 2006 via e-mail to either Melissa Johnson or Gabe Gross. Along with your list, please include your name as well as the band or label that you are associated with. Please note that this is a call for bands and labels (or managers, and other industry folk) only to submit lists. NOT users.
