It’s BTR’s 10th birthday this week!!! What an amazing accomplishment- we’ve come so far in ten years and most importantly, played so many fantastic new artists for our listeners to discover. In that spirit, for the 10th anniversary we’re starting off the show with all new music, and finishing it up with old favorites that I played when I first started at BTR in 2008 and 2009. And while you’re listening, go onto Facebook and give us a birthday like!
