Every once in awhile. At the end of every month. So I guess that isn’t every once in awhile but rather quite often. Monthly, in fact. I collect the data. The comments and tweets and messages and owls sent to me about what songs the NEXTers liked during a week. I gather that info. I study it. I put it together in charts, graphs, and other fancy ways of measuring such things.

Then out of the darkness appears 12 to 15 (usually) songs. Enough music to fill an hour. Well 55 to 56 minutes. A radio station must play adverts. So out the darkness emerges 15 songs. Notable songs. Notable songs of said month.

So thank you for you listening and taking the time to comment.

Next is your place for new music discovery. As always, our goal is to find you – a NEXT, new favorite song. Let us know how we are doing.

Glorious noise from: Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Weird Milk, Bleached, Feet, Tallies, Dude York, Sam Cohen, Orville Peck, The Teskey Brothers, Omar Apollo, Jade, Sean McConell, Truth Club, Muddy Ruckus

Thanks for listening and thanks again to Ocean 98 for putting next on the radio.

New music discovery is important and thank you for doing your part.

Please support these bands…or we wouldn’t have bands like this around to support. Buy an album, or a ticket to a show, or a tee shirt, or…something from them. Thank you.

If there are any bands/managers/labels etc that want their music removed (for any reason) please contact me (chris at allthingsnext dot com) and I’ll promptly remove it. Thank you, bands, 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 please think it over again. I am a music maker advocate.

Spotify playlist updates on Thursday. Link to Chris Bro on Spotify.
