Episode #424 Sunday, January 1, 2012

It’s our first show of the new year, and our (almost) annual super-sized marathon edition, as we get double-sized and air for a full 4 hours. Once again, we start off with our (almost) annual tributes to Hank Williams and Townes Van Zandt, both of whom died on this day. We also send out birthday wishes to Burton Cummings and Paul Westerberg, who share a birthday on December 31. Then, it’s time to get into the thick of things, playing more of our favourite musical highlights from 2011.
