Top of the Charts From the Week of February 17 – 23, 2013


Every week, WMSE reports its weekly charts to CMJ (the College Music Journal); and because WMSE has a free-form format, our DJs can spin whatever they choose on each of their weekly three-hour programs. Here are the top five most-spun albums for the past week out of those free-form programs in the respective genres of: alternative/radio 200 (rock, pop, hip hop), adds (new stuff!), rpm (electronic), new world, jazz and blues (reported, monthly). Seek out more info on each top five artist via the hyperlinks and view the complete list of weekly charts, here.
