The Local Show: Critics Pick Edition

Listen Local Show - December 16, 2012 (Full audio)

Jul 27, 2016

It's time for our annual critics pick edition of The Local Show!

David Campbell is joined by Reed Fischer of CityPages, Ross Raihala of The Pioneer Press, Chris Riemenschneider of The Star Tribune and our very own Local Current Blog writer Andrea Swensson.

They'll talk about some of their favorite releases for the year and chime in on a variety of questions thanks to submissions from readers and listeners. Most overhyped? Most overlooked? Predictions for 2013? All will be examined.

As we near the end of the year, remember that the December 23 show will be all local, seasonal favorites. On December 30, we'll count down the top 20 local releases of the year as voted on by Current listeners.
