Podcast: December 31, 2017 – New Year’s Eve Marathon

Episode #722

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!
