Jazz88’s Top 10 Songs of ’22

Greetings! Sean here, Music Director and Afternoon Host at Jazz88. I’m honored to share the Top Ten Songs of 2022 on Jazz88. A quick note about the methodology: I gathered the fifty most played songs on Jazz88 that were released in the year 2022 and then put up a poll for listeners to pick their favorite ten songs among that list. These are the results. I’d like to thank Kevin O’Connor, the previous Music Director and Afternoon Host at Jazz88 who was instrumental in many of the song choices you see here. I’d also like to thank Justus Sanchez, who made some excellent music choices in the months between Kevin’s departure and me taking on the role! As always, I’m welcome to your feedback and very grateful for the feedback we received to be able to compile this list. Please share any feedback or questions with me here: sean@jazz88.fm.
