In 100 Words: FTT’s Year-End Posts for 2014

2014 is about to close, and From the Tube has something in store to end the year.

The Billboard Hot 100 Year-End charts has been released, and From the Tube is here to recap the top 100 songs of the year. Starting December 15, each post will feature 10 of the top 100 songs in ascending order (100-51 from 12/15-12/19, and 50-11 from 12/20-12/21), culminating in the top 10 songs of 2014, which will be posted on December 22.

And as always, From the Tube will look back at the year that was on Philippine television and radio. FTT’s year-end posts will focus on the various changes that occurred in the world of television and radio, as well as the best and the worst performers of the year.

With that, From the Tube would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
