Here it is in all its glory! The 2018 Best Of New Noize, 50 tracks all played at some point in time this year. It took many weeks and long hours of pure stress to compile the 4 hour list of amazingness. I could dive deep on each and every track, but I'm not gonna do that. Instead just plug this in and enjoy the 2018 journey.

On a personal note I like having fun here showcasing new content week in and week out. 2018 was one of the harder years of my life. If I believed in the concept of hope I would be hopeful about 2019, but instead I am positive that 2019 will be better for all, or at least for me.


IDK what the future has in store for anyone, BUT what I can guarantee is if there are people out there making music, I will be playing that music in my area like I have been for the past 10 years on New Noize. I don’t do this for the money (if you saw how much they have been paying me you would laugh then cry like I do every pay period) I don’t do this for the fame (I have been at the same radio station for the past 15 years and am the 2nd oldest ON-Air personality and people still have no IDEA that I am even a part of this station). I do this as a labor of love and the on the off chance that this specialty show exposes something new to the unexposed.

See you in 2019.
