Chelsey Cope

What a year for music. Don’t believe me? Then just look at the diversity of all the 2018 year-end Best Of’s. Taking a look at my list makes my heart swell & reminds me of why I still do what I do. The music, man - the music! Like Chelsey Cope at her very best or Skating Polly carving their names on my heart or Broncho when they toured with Billy Idol (I’m still jealous).

Ryan LaCroix, host of The Oklahoma Rock Show, shares his 10 favorite Oklahoma albums of 2018:

10. Gum - When the Water Hits the Moon

LISTEN: Tired Eyes, I Can Do What You Want Me To, Under Your Spell

Last week, we counted down the top 25 Oklahoma songs of 2017. In total, we played 435 new songs on The Oklahoma Rock Show in 2017, so our final list was extremely competitive.

Check out our picks below.

25. St. Vincent - "Pills"

24. Gabriel Royal - "Say It's Right"

Each month, NPR Music asks 10 public radio DJs and music directors to send in the songs they can't get enough of. The songs they select often paint a picture of their local music scene, and this month, several of them chose to highlight rising stars.
