Playlist Wars

Playlist Wars

One topic. Three playlists. YOU decide who’s best! Playlist Wars offers a fresh take on music commentary, pitting one mainstream music fan (co-host Alex Gomez) against one full-blown music fanatic (co-host Brian Colburn) along with one special guest. Every episode is focused on an artist, band or theme, with each person creating an individual 10-song playlist that they feel best represents the topic. Listeners then vote to decide which panel member “got it right.” Let the battle begin! 👊🏼
