Episode 295


Well, I didn’t mean to make a show with lots of piano, but whither goest the flow, so go we. Max Corbacho escorts us through 30 too-short minutes in the Spotlight, and the last third keeps us nicely chilled, if I do say so myself.

All around the interwebtubenets, podcasts and blogs are ladling out their “Best of” lists for 2019. Yay, them. If that’s your year-end bag, you should listen to those, too. But I’ve decided to leave that to them and just give you some more Newish queue cuts to drop into. Enjoy, and thanks for being here this year.
