City of Night “Fave’s of 2012” playlist and podcast – 88.5 KCSN


   I don’t usually put out a “Best of” music list at the end of the year since we are inundated with lists from every direction and they cover the subject fairly well. Though I’ve been asked by several people to put a year-end list together, and so I decided to celebrate the songs from 2012 that saw frequent airplay on City of Night during this past year. Here is a three hour collection of my “Faves of 2012”. Enjoy the music!!!Shovel
