Hey Listeners,

It's that time of year - "Best Of...". Well tonight I'll be playing tracks from releases that were of particular interest to me. It's mostly all 2015 releases, but it's not your typical countdown. I've got about 16 different categories and I've chosen my favorites in those categories. Should be a fun review of 2015. I'll also be giving away a pair of tickets to see The Infamous Stringdusters at The National this Saturday night.
