As 2017 draws to a close, we're looking at back at some of the albums that were featured at the station. This list compiles our charts from mid-December '16 to mid-December '17. Over this time we've charted 421 albums - 257 of these were made by Canadian artists and 83 were from local artists. While this list gives a picture of what was getting spun the most at our station, there is no way to showcase all of the amazing artists that we've played, interviewed and enjoyed this year. Scroll to the bottom for the Spotify playlist.
