CHIRP Radio writesCHIRP Radio’s Best of 2022: Barry Owen

CHIRP Radio Best of 2022

Throughout December, CHIRP Radio presents its volunteers’ top albums of 2022. Our next list is from Board Member Barry Owen.

I listen to CHIRP, Kidzbop and everything else, in about that order these days so I don’t get to listen to or see as much as I used to. But these albums were on regular rotation for me this year.

These picks are not ranked, but Wet Leg was definitely the most played around my house this year. So much so that my 5 & 3-year-olds regularly requested the “underwear song” aka Chaise Longue. Just hope they weren’t listening to or memorizing some of the albums other lyrics…

Artist of the year and show of the year for me was Low and their show at Metro early in the year. RIP Mimi Parker. Can’t wait to see everyone else’s lists and discover some great albums!
