12/28/18 Best of 2018 / KTUH Fri. 7am-noon

Today is a 5-hour special, subbing part of DJ Lovebug's Alphabet Soup/For Fun & For Free Fridays.  I'll be looking at some of my favorite music from this past year, as much as I can fit into a 5-hour set.  There are also several songs that were either released late 2017, or past singles that were re-recorded or re-mastered for releases this year but I still loved them as much as the music released this year.

In addition, links to some of these songs (via Youtube, Soundcloud, etc.) will be provided so you can enjoy them.  Have a safe and wonderful celebration, and happy new year!
