Kris Kerry’s Favorite 25 Albums of 2015

January 19, 2016

As the booker of the Rialto, Kris Kerry listens to and sees more bands than your average Tucsonan. He also volunteers for the station in a unique capacity. In addition to reviewing CDs, he also researches and delivers the classic pick of the week. It’s no surprise then, that’s he delivered more than a top 10 list. He gave us 25 plus some honorable mentions:
