Take The Subway To Your Suburb! Show tracks for Sat. Dec. 27/14

Last show for 2014! Next week we start the new year with a look back at 2014 with The Festive 50. As I said during the show we are going to try something different this year. Normally we split it up between 2 shows since there isn't enough time to feature all 50 artists in one show. But since the show is a little longer now we will use one show. There won't be enough time to play all 50 entries. The alternative of 2 shows would have left way too much extra time to kill. So we'll see how it works this year.
