Rob’s lists

It may have been a shit year in the world, but 2017 was a solid one for music. Picking a year-end retrospective is always tough as one tries to distill 365 days of tunes into a concise list. So here’s my choices for things that I heard that stood out for me, both from Canada and beyond. I tried to find at least a few that you may not have heard of and some you likely have. Here are Rob's bargain long johns which we talked about on the show.
