Class of 2014: Lofty's Fav 45 2014










Lofty’s Fav 45 2014
by John Loftus





There have been so many fantastic singles, EPs and albums released during the year that it was a near impossible task to whittle those hundreds of tracks down to a mere 45 but hey thats what this time year is all about, end of yearlists are a seasonal tradition up there with mince pies, turkey and mulled wine.


Thankfully I had the listeners of 8radio.com to help me out with their nominations for Loftys Fav 45 along with pointers subtle and not so subtle from my fellow 8radio.com presenters so thats how we got to the final 45 tracks which can be listened to in full here.
