Top 30 new albums for week ending Jul 13 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.

Below the chart is a list of new albums added to the music library once that information has been compiled.  Check back later if it’s not there yet

Monday Morning Breakfast Blend presents:

I drove through the tail end of that storm on Friday after spending about 7 hrs driving before I hit it, and that was not fun. But, the gorgeous weather we had all weekend almost made it worth it.
