We’re on part one of a two part Saturday Show today! I’m going over my favorite releases from 2015. Today’s show will be the last six months, and in two weeks will be the first six months of 2016. I hope you enjoy this musical recap of the year, and I also hope that you check out BTR on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud.
Happy December! We’re nearly halfway through the month. And guess what? While all those other stations are just playing Christmas tunes or going over their top of the year lists, we’re still playing brand new music! Check out new tunes from Lettuce, Beacon, and Kiasmos. And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram, and SoundCloud.

Another Saturday, another weekend filled with great music. Summer Camp lives up to their name with a catchy new title track from their album Bad Love (don’t worry, this doesn’t sound anything like the new Taylor Swift single), plus we hear from new artist Chui Wan and get a brand new track from My Brightest Diamond. So just sit back, relax, and let the music take care of your summer Saturday soundtrack.
