WOXY’s 97 Best

Every year WOXY, also known as my new favorite radio station that I listen to on the internet, counts down their 97 Best albums as determined by airplay.? This year will mark teh 24th such year and if past years are any indication, then it’s safe to assume that they really have their finger on the pulse of music.

2007’s list won’t debut until Dec. 20, when the station will be counting down all day long until they reach number one.? That’s on Thursday.? As soon as they unveil their choices we’ll update for you if you’re lazy and don’t want to listen.? Take a gander at the past two decades plus.
