Top 30 new albums for week ending May 25 presents:

The weekly chart reflects the diversity of programming on WRIR. In an average week, WRIR DJs play approximately 1,200 albums (and EPs and singles).

To make it on the list, an album must be released in the past year. Local bands and albums played by more than one DJ are given priority in the rankings.

Monday Morning Breakfast Blend presents:

It was Mother’s Day yesterday, and as you know, I don’t generally do themed shows based around holidays, but since my mother was visiting, I felt inspired to do something. The last few sets of the show is that something.

You can read updates and get previews by liking this show on Facebook. Did you enjoy the show or want to listen to it again? You can find it in the archive player for the next two weeks.
