Best Music of 2014

Anthony DeCurtis is a contributing editor for Rolling Stone magazine. For a long time, he was a regular guest on our show, reviewing new music about once a month. Then we would conduct a special interview in late December about his favorite music of the year. We are happy to be able to continue that tradition this year. Here are the artists, albums and songs he discussed with Bob, in the order that we played them. Click on the artist for their webpage of more inofrmation about them.
