Modesto, CA — January 1, 2023 — In keeping with a bit of the old time publications that liked to announce the top singers, instrumentalists and bands of a given year, here is our annual version. These lists are based on the number of visitors to a given page indicated in the category.

We appreciate the efforts of fans to salute their favorites in these annual summaries, but we are aware of the attempts to raise the 'scores'.
