The 120 Best Recordings of 2023
(Part 4 of 4)

Wednesday MidDay Medley presents part-four, of our four-week special: The 120 Best Recordings of 2023. Based on playlists of this little ole radio show, we’ve compiled representative tracks from our favorite full-length albums and EP recordings of 2023. We realize these “Best of” lists can seem subjective, so we ask that you please accept our list as a celebration of the year in music.

This Wednesday, we’ll count down from #30 through #1 of our list, with music from: Heidi Lynne Gluck, Red Kate, Iris Dement, Silicone Prairie, Janelle Monae, Dan Jones & The Squids, Bad Alaskan, Saving Miles Lemon, Various Blonde, Ivory Blue, Calvin Arsenia, Bob Walkenhorst, Supermassive Black Holes, Monta, Dragon Inn 3, Mike Dillon and Punkadelic, Andrew Connor, Sweeping Promises, Yves Tumor, Joanna Sternberg, Meshell Ndegeocello, Photo Ops, Wednesday, Noname, Sufjan Stevens, Mitski, Allison Russell, Ratboys, Anohni and The Jonhsons, and Abraham Alexander.

In 2023 we’ve broadcast nearly 900 different tracks on WMM over our 100,000 watts of 90.1 FM Community Radio Airwaves. Over 500 of these tracks were from New & MidCoastal Releases. We played tracks from National Releases, and MidCoastal Releases. 70 of the representative tracks in our “Best of” list are from MidCoastal Releases. We conducted over 150 interviews with 145 special guests. 50 of the bands and artists in our “Best of” list have joined us as guests on Wednesday MidDay Medley.

The 120 Best Recordings of 2023 is our celebration of the year in music.
