Salt Lake City, UT – Monday, Bob Boilen - host of National Public Radio's All Songs Considered - joins us for a look at the top CDs of 2008. NPR listeners have been voting on their favorites, and Boilen says that a few debut artists have been doing very well despite some great music from the tried and true bands. We'll see who made the final cut and ask the opinion of some of Salt Lake's own critics. We hope you'll join us with your picks too.

Purchase a CD of today's RadioWest. Please reference show #1629.
