100 Best Lists

The Best Week Ever

100 Best Lists

We called the week of December 15th through the 19th “The Best Week Ever.” We solicited your input and feedback to create 5 master lists of music. Each of the 100 Best lists were played back in order on each of the five successive days.  During the week we spent time asking for your support to keep the creative, unique and specialized sound of WEXT alive and well.  As a listener supported station, we can do things that other stations are not able to do.  Your generosity helped us reach our goal.  Thank you!

Keep reading for the lists.
