It’s that time of year us music geeks love the best. It’s Best Of Year Chart time. And of course, with Ian Lawton at the helm, the good ship 1BTN has docked some right bobby dazzlers in theirs as presenters from across the genres fight it out to land their favoured ones a place in 1BTN’s annual End Of Year Charts. Needless to say the resulting 2021 albums, tracks, reissues, compilations and labels selected are dead sound with enough old friends, new discoveries and sweet surprises to keep you entertained until, well, those Best Of Year Charts Of 2022. To paraphrase a certain Mr Freak Power, it’s time to turn on, tune in and realise yet again why we love this radio station so many call home so very much.
