This week's show is a look back at some of our favorite songs of 2020. Some might call it a "Best of 2020" show, but because we wont have time to play ALL the great songs of 2020, it's more of a "for your consideration" playlist. Perhaps it'll remind you of some gems as you make up your 2020 wrap up mixtapes and personal "Best of" lists.

IN THE COMMENTS: We've shared links to 56 bandcamp pages of some of our 2020 favorites!

Tune in next week! We will celebrate the holidays with an all non-traditional and obscure Christmas songs show!
