Arch City Radio Hour: A Look Back At 2013

Arch City Radio Hour debuted on January 7th, 2013 and since that first show, we've heard from just a small portion of the vast wealth of artistic talent that resides, plays and thrives in our region.  We're looking forward to another year of great interviews, insights, and performances, but we thought that during this holiday season, we take a moment to look back and hear some of our favorite performances since the show's inception.  It was hard to keep it at an hour and we had to leave out at least another hour of material.  Thanks to all the artists who have appeared on the show and shared your talents with us!
