    Mar 7, 2013 The Chart Show

Every week we do a "Global Shout Out" on The Chart Show. Wherever you listen to us, send us a note and we might include you!

Once again, the top 3 this week represent our musical outreach efforts. They come from 3 different countries: UK, USA and Iceland. Then #4 is from right here in the Great Midwest!

Good to see lots of love for our CD of the Week.

Unfortunately we lost one local (Low) after 6 weeks and Foxygen after one.

Django Django are inducted to the Hall of Fame for the second time and Leagues make their debut. This song was selected by our listeners at the recent public music meeting.
