JW Show’s Birthday Best Awards 2015

Mar 4, 2015 by

After a five-year hiatus, the Birthday Best Awards are back to present our favorite ten songs of 2014, as well as our selected Album and Artist of the year. We’ll share the runners up and portions of the list, as well as a few who nearly made the cut. It’s a great, music-packed show for you to enjoy and to experience the best of what 2014 had to offer the listeners of The Justin Wayne Show.


Oh, who won? Fair question. You’ll either have to listen to the show or head to one of the lists of which the links are located at the bottom of this post.


I won’t give it away, but I can tell you that one of Tom Rosenthal’s thoughtfully hilarious tunes made it into the Top 5…
