The Best Music of 2014

2014

Well Planet Earth, I know I’m a little late, but it’s time to reflect on the awesomeness of last year in regards to rocking tuneskies. I can’t say it was the best year in recent memory, with a lot of highly anticipated releases not making the top list. Yet as always, if you dig deep enough, you’ll find some gems, so overall, 2014 definitely didn’t disappoint. Way to go year!

The Best Music of 2013


2013
It was a rocking year for tunes, let me tell you Earth. Like all music nerds, I’m all about the year end lists. I don’t do a top songs list, because I’m an album man. Old school, what can I say. I’m not just doing the top 13 albums of 2013 though, we’ve got lots more going on than that. It’s time for some wild retrospective time, right…about…now.

The Best Music of 2012

Best-Of-2012

I tell you what Planet Earth, 2012 was a doozy for good tuneskies. If you had your ears glued to top 40 radio or entertainment headlines, you probably thought 2012 was pretty lame in the musical world. Fear not! I have scoured the globe for musical greatness, and provided the best of the year, attempting to be as unbiased as possible, because I care.

Show #8: The Best of 2012

A new year … and a new show to grace your ears…

That’s right earth, it’s officially 2013, so it’s time to rock with the special two-hour show from last week where I recapped all the awesomeness of 2012. I know I’m a little late posting this bad boy, but I’m also a little lazy. Hey, at least I’m honest. 

In being a new year, I thought it was time to reassess the format of this blog. That’s right, all of the show links will be posted separately from blog posts for four reasons. 1: If you’re lazy, you can simply click the link without having to read stuff. 2: If you can’t read, you don’t have to worry about the shame of not comprehending long blog posts and failing at reading stuff. 3: I am attempting to make the blog stand on it’s own beyond just going in conjunction with the radio show, so you can then read more stuff if you so desire. 4: I can’t remember what else, but I think I was going to say “read stuff” again.

So then the grand idea is to have blog posts throughout the week with music related greatness, but every Wednesday, count on the show being posted in all its rocking glory. If I need to elaborate on the show with a separate blog post, get ready for that bad mother to drop like a bomb on Thursdays. That way, it’s quicker and easier to jam to the TRR radio hour, and therefore leading you on your way to being the coolest kid on the block.
