Unsung Heroes & B-Sides Playlist

Hour 1:
Hour 2:

As you know, we’re not huge fans of pop music. But there are indie acts that cross over from unknown to mainstream with the success of their great talent. This week we celebrate some of the unsung heroes featured over the past decade. Some artists you’ll recognize, but might not know the song. Others might be artists who have pockets of large followers, but are still somehow unknown to other pockets.
