Craig Reptile: Your Sunday Sonic Sundowner writesCHIRP Radio Best of 2014: Craig Bechtel

CHIRP Radio Best of 2014

Throughout December, CHIRP Radio presents its volunteers’ top albums of 2014. Our next list is from DJ and Director of Underwriting Craig Bechtel.

Some tough choices this year. Some of my favorites didn't make the list and some that might have made the list didn't get enough spins on my speakers to earn their way in. My DJ alterego Craig Reptile hosts Your Sunday Sonic Sundowner every Sunday from 6 pm to 9 pm central time on www.chirpradio.org and you can read my music reviews and features at Popstache.
