What was the most overlooked record (or artist) for your format in 2005?
“This Is Your Life.”Maxwell/KSMB: Gorillaz
“Feel Good Inc.”Erik Bradley/B96: Bobby Valentino. He has a ton of talent and I wish he had connected with the audience better. Hopefully on his next project
he’ll get his props!Bruce St. James/KKFR:Amerie.
Fisher/WHZT: John Legend.
Chris Marino/WLDI: Keith Urban “You’ll Think Of Me.”
Brotha Fred/KHFI: Natasha Bedingfield. But 2006 is looking better for her.
JT Bosch/WLAN: Switchfoot “Stars.”
Keith Allen/WILN: Nelly
Eric Chase/WTWR: Howie Day.
Toby Knapp/WNOK: Crossfade. Just went back into Power.
Skyy/XM: Reina “Forgive.” Great artist and how can you go wrong with a remake of a country song.
Dan Bozyk/KUFO: Danko Jones “Lovercall.”
Eddie Gutieriez/KJEE: The Bravery “An Honest Mistake.”

Michele Diamond/WROX:Hawthorne Heights “Ohio Is

Sparky/KIBZ: Beautiful Creatures “Deuce.”
Kenny Allen/KMBY: Tegan
Monte Montana/KNCN:Supagroup “It Takes Balls.”
J.R./WHEB: Alter Bridge “Find The Real.”
Tori Thomas/WZZO:Shinedown’s Leave A WhisperCD still had some life left in it during the very early part of ’05. I also think Mainstream Rock should’ve shown a little more love to Theory Of A Deadman.Michael Cross/KFMW: Danko Jones “Lovercall.”Tim Parker/WNOR: The Mars Volta “The Widow.”Steve Raymond/WZXL: Alter Bridge, they’re very talented musicians.
Doug Podell/WRIF: Silvertide.
Courtney Quinn/WLZX:Submersed “Hollow” (great song, band killed live) and The Mars Volta “The Widow.”
Tony Waitekus/WHTS: “Crazy” by Simple Plan. It’s testing quite well for me now. It was a hit that wasn’t given enough time.
Matt Sneed/WPST: Josh Kelly “Only You.” It should have been a lot bigger than it was.
Matt Spry/KFMA: Thrice
Bob Patrick/WXLK: Backstreet Boys and Mario’s “How Could You.”
Scott Petibone/WKRL: The Audioslave track they didn’t go for.
