Just a bit ago at 1STBANK Center, on stage at KTCL's Not So Silent Night, Alf, the host of Locals Only, announced the finalists for the station's annual Hometown for the Holidays promotion. After sorting through all the submissions, with a panel of local luminaries weighing in last week, the Channel 93.3 staff narrowed it down to twelve finalists (evidently, there was a four-way tie for ninth place). Page down to see who made the cut.
Final Twelve: Heyday, My Body Sings Electric, Beats Noir, Saints, Monroe Monroe, Eldren, Reno Divorce, Fierce Bad Rabbit, Swayback, Churchill, Photo Atlas, In the Whale
