The Monday Alternative Music Meeting

November 13th, 2023

Happy Monday! Hope you had an amazin’ weekend! There’s a lot to unpack on this week’s Mediabase Alternative chart. I will get you the chart highlights you need to know and the 5 new chart debuts. MGMT “Mother Nature” is buzzing and is this week’s #1 song on New Music Discovery Picks. I have ALT Music Info from Maneskin with Rush! (Are You Coming), a new expanded edition of their album with 5 additional songs.

We kickoff the first day of the week with Zack Skyler from WGBJ/Ft. Wayne sharing his “Famous Firsts.” Good stuff and great memories.
