Dig into The Saturday Alternative playlist! This week we looked back over another great year in music and revisited some of the standout track’s we discovered together on this show.

This is my final Saturday Alternative, and I want to say thanks to everyone who has tuned in over the years to share in the joy of music discovery with me. I’ve always had such a blast putting this show together, and I’ll certainly miss it. That being said, I’m looking forward to enjoying many more years of discovering the best new music just by keeping my radio tuned to 89.7 WTMD.

Thanks for joining our little listening party each week. I’ll be seeing you around.
