Next weeks show will be a best of the year extravaganza, so this is the final tally of 2012.

Voting for the Top 89 seems to have helped some, Frank O and Metric, but doesn't explain Jack's descent?! It's very tight at the top of the Top 89 so be sure to vote.

We lost Beach House, Yeasayer and The Tallest Man On Earth, all of whom had great runs on the chart this year. Sea Wolf and Alt-J are inducted into the Hall of Fame to have a clean slate to start 2013. Happy Holidaze and thanks for voting!!
