Melksham Town Sound's Albums Of 2013

Since most music only gains success through marketing these days, the list of best selling albums from 2013 is by no means an indication of what is best, and certainly doesn't reflect the wide and diverse tastes of people in the UK, especially music fans. Everyone is on their own musical journey and everyone has their own take on what the albums of the year were, so with that here are the albums that four different Melksham Town Sound presenters/DJs opted for... Over the last few weeks, all these presenters also hosted special editions of their shows dealing with their favourite albums of 2013, and these can be heard here too.

One of the two gig promoters at Sheer Music also has his own show, in fact The Colour Of Vinyl is also a music blog that can be found HERE. Usually dealing with the sort of punk rock, ska and hardcore that soundtracked my mid 2000's, Rob usually broadcasts from 8 till 9pm on Wednesday and previous shows can be heard on Mixcloud HERE. Listen to his 'Best of 2013' show HERE.

10. Justin Timberlake - The 20/20 Experience

1. Daft Punk - Random Access Memories

Completing the line-up is Cameron, who hosts The Cam B Show and airs a diverse mixture of stuff that he listens to... He does his thing on Wednesday nights from 7 till 8, and you can expect anything from indie, 80's synthpop, rock, and dance to RnB, electro and modern pop. His shows are also on Mixcloud HERE, and his '2013 Best Of' show can be listened to HERE.

My own show The BPS Broadcast is on every Monday from 7-8pm (more details to be found HERE) and a second weekly show (that will be dealing with music of the past) will be announced soon...
