December 31, 2006

2006 was a pretty interesting year in music, and so we took some time to look back at the year that was: some of the best, some of the worst, some of the weirdest, and more.

With almost 6 hours to fill, there was plenty of time for other stuff. After struggling to make it in to the station today through the massive snowstorm, things got off to a bit of a rough start thanks to weather related problems, and computer/ipod difficulties, but once we got going with some sympathetic snow songs, all was well.

Of course, we also paid tribute to two of the greatest songwriters of all time, Townes Van Zandt and Hank Williams, in recognition of the January 1 anniversaries of both of their deaths.
