Every Saturday, I cohost “Radio Reverb,” a two-hour, new music program on WMNF 88.5-FM in Tampa. This week—as a follow up to our year-end, local music roundup— we’re joined by Saturday Asylum’s Scott Imrich for a round-up of our favorite songs of the year from non-local bands.

The radio show also features a concert report listing about a dozen of the best Tampa Bay concerts to look out for over the next seven days—including New Year’s Eve concerts.

Get more info on what we talked about below, and tune in today from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. to hear some of what we’ve written about below. See even more show previews via
