Damn what a brilliant month of tunes. I really needed two hours to get all the songs on the show that I wanted to. Here are the best songs of April (minus a few). Enjoy.

If any bands/managers/labels etc want their music removed please contact me (chris at allthingsnext dot com) and I’ll promptly remove it. Thank you, bands. Thank you for making music. Thank you for making my life better because of the music you make. I am a passionate music consumer as are my listeners. If you think NEXT streaming music is bad you have it wrong. I am a music maker advocate.

    May be one bad that I cannot remember.

    Funny thing about the Silas Fermoy song. It’s a demo. They just released the “actual” track. I think I like the demo better. I might have to play the real release and see what my listeners think.

    Glad my ears are helping, George. I might have to tweet that quote…if you don’t mind.
