Best of 2013
Prequel to Listageddon.

The list is finished. As if there was even a good time to make a list, the end of the year is typically that time. Make the list for the Jolly old elf, New Years resolutions, none can compare to the album lists that are tirelessly executed every year by self proclaimed and so called know it alls like myself. This is the fourth year that I am publishing a year end list to appease the Rob Gordon in me. It makes for great radio in a Kasey-countdown kind of way. On December 15 for 6-8pm on WQFS, Guilford College Radio, I will counting them down again.The fourth annual Flipside Top Albums of 2013. Thirty in all. Join me, if you will.
