Radio Hootenanny Faves of 2015

 

Radio Hootenanny Faves of 2015

we aren’t BIG on “top whatever # ” lists OR ranking things in order of preference. how can you say one is better than the other? especially when dealing with differing musical genres. how can you compare an apple to a pizza? a steak to a piece of bread? chocolate cake to a carrot?

so with that in mind, here are 10 releases that got some Radio Hootenanny airtime in 2015. these never left our near vicinity during our daily lives and waking moments. each one essential in our books. enjoy at your leisure!
