We hit a lot of stops on today’s show, including the ditch, and had a lot of fun along the way. Lots of new music, requests, a look at an exciting upcoming show, a bit of a tribute to the great Willie P Bennett as we head toward the 10th anniversary of his death, and much more!
My very favourite co-host, young Jeremy drops by to keep the old man company on today's show, and what a show it is, with new music, some cool covers, and lots of interesting tangents.
It's a good thing that I'm so slow making a "Best of" list each year (when I actually do), because I'm constantly finding new music from years past and re-evaluating the choices. This week I discovered two albums worthy of a spot right near the top of the list, and spun some music from those as well as some more worthy contenders. We also had some great requests & suggestions from listeners.
It's time for another of our legendary marathons where we ring out the old year and look forward to the new. As always, we've got tributes to two of the greatest and most important songwriters of all time, who coincidentally died on the same day - Jan. 1, as well as an extensive look back at some of the best and most interesting albums and events of the year, and discuss some things to look forward to in the new year!
