It's been a buffeting, stormy start to the year here in's home of San Francisco, but as we regather ourselves from holiday breaks, new years toasts, and a little flash flooding, we took a moment as we always do: to celebrate the year that's past, and all the incredible sounds we experienced in 2022.

The Top Charts 2022

Once again, music director Nick has run the numbers and compiled the exhaustive Top 100 of 2022 chart, with the Isle of Wight's sensational Wet Leg topping after the viral success of Chaise Lounge and the excellent self-titled debut album that followed.

This year we also debut a new chart: The Top 30 Local Bands of 2022 — highlighting San Francisco Bay Area artists who rocked the station last year, on our mission to highlight the local scene.

The Top 5s

As is tradition, our DJs and volunteers took a little time to compile their personal favourites and highlights, in a fresh series of Top 5 blog posts. Check out these eclectic sets: discover something you missed, share the passion for the things you loved, and maybe find a like-minded compatriot with a show to listen to on to in 2023.
