On My Way to 2020: The penultimate day playlist of music.

(Wyatt and Gavin take one final look at 2019)

End of the Year Playlist

The computer software gathered a list of my “top songs” for the year. The significance was drawn from the number of time that I played the song on my computer. The radio show is only two hours in length. I needed to edit the song list in order that it would fit with the time allotted for the show. Believe it or not, I got all these songs into the show, plus time for NPR news, weather, public service announcements, and of course…my own brand of craziness. It was an eclectic list of recent and old tunes from a number of music genres and artists. I had a fun time with the show, Here is the playlists drawn from the weekly shows of 2019:
