Local 107.3fm Presents The Top 107.3 Records of 2012 Countdown

Join the usual motley crew of Local 107.3fm DJs on New Year’s Day for the 6th Annual Countdown of the Top 107.3 Records of the past year.

Following a morning of feature programming from Local-fm alumnus Andrew Chiasson’s Record Box John Lennon Special, and a special live broadcast with Dan Leger & Jay Rawding, plus The Mixed Tape’s Maritimes Best of 2012, we will be live at 1pm and counting down the most played albums on your favourite campus & community radio station in 2012 for what will surely be 10+ hours of wacky, good times.

And stay tuned following the Countdown for the 2nd Annual Saint John Playlist, not to mention the encore broadcast debut of last year’s First Saint John Playlist!

As for New Year’s Day and our ridiculous countdown, feel free to drop by the studios on the UNBSJ campus. Telephone us at 648-5925. Observe our shame, webcast and streaming at
