The Best of 2020!

The Rhythms Readers Poll returns and we have a great incentive for you to vote - and an even better one if you are a subscriber to the magazine.

Santa dropped by the office the other day and gave us two copies of Craig Horne's book I'll Be Gone. Plus we have 5 copies each of Bakelite Radio's Rosary of Tears and Vika & Linda's Sunday:The Gosple According To Iso for current subscribers to win.

(Prizewinners will receive their goodies prior to Christmas).

And just because we are feeling generous and kind of festive we will also have an exclusive Rhythms download card 20 lucky non-subcribers (or are they non-believers?)


Of course, everyone can vote but only subscribers can win the Paul Kelly prize pack or The Kinks album!

Prize winners will be announced on Tuesday December 15 via the newsletter and website.

Results of the Readers Poll will be published in the January/February edition of Rhythms and online on January 1, 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: If your choices are not on the list below then you can add them in the text box at the end of the section. 
Only votes that include a valid email address will be valid. One vote per person.
