Shannon and the Clams
And so begins our epic four part year-end "best of" series. We'll talk about our respective top six albums featured on Music Digest over the course of this episode and the next one, then the last two episodes of December account for our top six albums of the year that were not discussed on MD. Today we talk about our 4-6 Music Digest top picks. The three of us have different music backgrounds and taste, so this makes for an interesting countdown. It's time to round out the year, listen to great music on this podcast and enjoy it.
