Joe Held: Rebellious Jukebox writesCHIRP Radio Best of 2018: Joe Held - Rebellious Jukebox

CHIRP Radio Best of 2018

Throughout December, CHIRP Radio presents its volunteers’ top albums of 2018. Our next list is from DJ Joe Held - Rebellious Jukebox.

10 Albums released in 2018 that I think are worth a listen (It’s not a Top 10 list). I have a hard time picking favorites. I don’t find the time to listen to full albums very often, and I usually prefer to listen to a variety of music - like on CHIRP Radio. I haven’t seen these albums on many other lists. Anyways, I like all of them.
