What a year of music! What a year for M83! I’m convinced that Twin Shadow’s “Five Seconds” would be much higher on the list if it had been released earlier. Then again, Azealia Banks’ “Jumanji” was released after it and made it to #19. Also, where is Rihanna’s “You Da One”?? Come on, DJs!

Anyways, thank you, DJs and listeners, for yet another great year of programming. Be sure to turn those dials back to 91.1 FM on June 18th when programming resumes for the summer. And congrats to Joanna, Ana, Rebecca, and Sam x2- you made it! Missing you already.
