2016 has been an intense and unforgettable year. We lost legendary musicians and witnessed a huge political shift. Today on the show, we recap the year by talking about some of its best — and most notable — songs. First, we hear from Kill Rock Stars guys Ben Parrish and James Reling about their favorite songs of the year, from Cate Le Bon to Jackie Lynn. Then we’re joined by songwriter Charlie Harding, host of music podcast Switched on Pop! Harding gives us the lowdown on some of the year’s biggest music trends.
