The Big Beat with Ryan Arnold
By 93XRT

A slew of blistering songs alongside some mellow tunes makes for a very full hour of new music! Middle Kids, Cloud Nothings, and Kiwi Jr along with Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week Deanna Devore. The entire playlist is below and online and you can check out playlists to past Big Beats here.

I mention every week because it's so important - support the artists you hear on the Big Beat and WXRT by buying their music from, whenever you can, a local, independent, or family-owned music store and, when you head out crate diving, wear a mask and let me know what you find! Connect with me on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. My handle on all three of 'em is RyanArnoldRocks.

Your pal,-Ryan A.
