The Top 25 tracks, as rated by YOU the Listeners, are now up on the cj's radio olio website at!
Two things jump out at me this month:
1) Because of ties, there are 36 tracks in the Top 25. That's cool...the more the merrier!
2) None of the tracks this month were in the Top 25 last month. That tells me that you think there are a lot of great tracks in the Playlist. Thanks for that vote of confidence in my song selection: it really makes me happy!
Remember, every month around this time there'll be a New Top 25 posted of the top rated tracks of the last 30 days. Vote your Faves! And, like Chicago Election laws, you don't have to be alive to cast a vote!
Love & Peace, Clarence
