After racing 24-1 last week, Ty Segall enjoys a second week at #1 with his Drag City release, Freedom’s Goblin. This is Segall’s second NACC 200 #1, following last year’s self-titled topper.

MD OF THE MONTH:
WCXS (The Steel Eagle)
“I’m originally a hard rock guy and my favorite artist of all time is Alice Cooper. His sound transcends decades and the album Hey Stoopid, from the early 90s, never grows old for me. If we’re looking for something more recent you can’t go wrong with Beck”
“I helped with radio promotion for David Byrne and Brian Eno’s Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, and when the album went to #1 I got a response from David Byrne. He just said “I’m truly in shock..” that was such a cool moment for me.”

SiriusXM The Village
