As the holiday season picks up and more folks begin their end of the year vacations, the amount of new release music takes a small dip. This week’s show features 14 songs, almost equally split between brand new arrivals and releases that showed up on our doorstep a little earlier in the year. However, ALL of the music is phenomenal!

One of the new releases featured this week is The Louisville Blues Compilation Vol. II, a collection of music by bands in and around Louisville, Kentucky and spearheaded by the Kentuckiana Blues Society in honor of their 25th anniversary.
