Philip Random's All Vinyl Countdown + Apocalypse
Philip Random’s All Vinyl Countdown and Apocalypse (aka the 1,111 Greatest Records You Probably Haven’t Already Heard) is the rather extensive playlist (with links) of a series of Randophonic radio programs which were broadcast from 2011 through 2013 c/o CITR.FM.101.9. As the name suggests, it's a countdown of a lot of great, odd, generally not well known pop-rock-psyche-funk-dance-country-western-world-noise-whatever music (1965-2001).

The All Vinyl Apox (as it came to be abbreviated) was well documented for a while. But then the old blog got mostly retired and most of the podcasts got lost in a hard drive crash, which now leaves little evidence that anything even happened. So in the interests of remedying this, the plan (already well underway) is to review the whole countdown (and apocalypse) one track at a time, one day at a time, for one thousand one hundred eleven days (or thereabouts).

I hope I don't have too many of these, but as for Badfinger, it doesn't "seem" Pete Ham killed himself over the band's management, it was in his suicide note.

I'm about 50-100 in now and there's lots of deep cuts. Nice! A YouTube playlist would be convenient, though. :)
