July 11, 2022 – As I stated last week, taking NOTHING away from Alysia Kraft’s brilliant solo debut, First Light – that album’s debut at #2 in the JUNE TOP 30 and landing at #1 in last week’s TOP 5, happened largely because it was featured heavily on Indie 102.3 in June. I expected to see it fall …
First Light fell from #1 last week to a tie for #13 with three other titles. Interestingly, a flurry of spins at a handful of mountain town stations this past week propelled David Star‘s September 2021 release, Touchstones, to the #1 spot for the week.
