Three big inductees to our Chart Hall of Fame: CHVRCHES and Hippo Campus both for the 8th time putting them at Numbers 9 and 10 respectively on the All Time Hall of Fame Chart. And Janelle Monae for the 4th time placing her just outside the Top 40! Next month we'll wrap 2018 by doing two shows featuring the Top 20 of the year and the Top 20 of All Time!

First Aid Kit bounce back to the top this week, for the second week in total. They're playing a couple of sold out shows in the UK this week and have just announced Australia dates for the end of the year, cunningly spending the deep winter months Down Under, where it's summer!

Biggest upward mover to #2, Big Red Machine's biggest gig yet is tonight at Terminal 5 in NYC. Then Justin Vernon will be back in Eau Claire on Nov 20th for the sold out Oxbow Hotel Lock Inn.

Billie Eilish is back after a weeks hiatus with a song that is apparently inspired by the BBC's Sherlock?! Arch rival Moriarty steals a crown from the crown jewels and says ...
that became the title of the hit song, because Billie thought the line was ... "Dope!"

BoyGenius' debut EP comes out this Friday and they're new on our chart this week at #17. They also made their national TV debut Monday on Seth Meyers show.

#19 Maggie Rogers is another new entry for the first time on our chart and she made her debut on Saturday Night Live last weekend.

Lake Street Dive who are having a crazy busy end of year, arrive new in the basement this week. They're playing a sold out show at The Ryman in Nashville this month and two in their hometown of Boston. Next year they've already announced another fifteen date tour mainly in the SouthEast.

Thanks to Bill DeVille for covering the hosting duties tonight as I fly to Reyjkavik for the 20th annual Iceland Airwaves Festival! We'll be broadcasting sessions from there on Friday night and Saturday afternoon.
