GREATGOLD.FM (12/16/2015) – The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland, Ohio, USA,has announced the great Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, Steve Miller and NWA, will be inducted into the RockHall at a ceremony in the Spring of 2016. the giant music acts were the top 5 vote getters in tabulations of ballots by voting members and fans, combined. Fan votes were open until December 8, 2015. The winners were announced December 16, 2015. Internet Radio has played the 2015 nominees for the 2016 honor for several months. In fact, most of them have always been prominently a part of the GreatGold Library since we began streaming music on the internet in 2008. All of the nominees have been an intricate part of Rock and Roll, many for decades. However, only 5 were selected to be included at this time.

Other nominees who didn’t quite find their way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the current crop are expected to be nominated again, possibly in next year’s crop. They are The Cars, Janet Jackson, Chaka Khan, The Spinners, Nine Inch Nails, The Smiths, Chic, Los Lobos, and The J.B.s (sometimes known as the JB’s). The latter band backed up James Brown and other recording artists in studios, and have had a performing career of their own as a swinging, funky band.

The five 2016 inductees will be celebrated at the annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on April 8 at New York City’s Barclays Center.  Tickets for the event go on sale in February, while a select number of pre-sale tickets will be available exclusively to hall of fame members.  A television broadcast of the ceremony will be aired on HBO in the spring of 2016.

Artists are eligible for consideration of this music industry honor 25 years after the release of their first record. 2016’s inductees were determined by a combination of the hall of fame’s foundation, consisting of international artists, historians and other industry players, and online fan voters. Classic Hit Oldies and GreatGold Hits Internet Radio is now playing most of the big songs by the victors in the balloting for 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee leaders who will be inducted in 2016. There will be at least one tune by one of the 2016 Inductees every hour during the rest of December, in addition to our regular playlist of The Best of the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and the finest of the 2000s.
