The 113 Best Recording of 2013

The 113 Best Recordings of 2013 is based on the playlists of Wednesday MidDay Medley. In 2013 we’ve played over 1000 songs, and hundreds of New & Local Releases. We’ve presented dozens of LIVE in-studio performances from area performers, and we’ve interviewed over 200 local and national guests. 62% of the recordings on our “Best of” list were locally produced. It’s all good!

It is a celebration of a great year in music!
