A Season in Hell #30: Best of 2009 with Mikl-em

We had a great time playing music from 2009. Mikl-em threw in a few reissues, but it's all good. Click here to go to the Podcast.

Or you can go to the FCCFreeRadio site. You need to click on "podcast" to get to the show. Then click on "A Season in Hell" to play the podcast from the show, but it's only up for one week; be warned.

Scott Beale from Laughing Squid spent the evening with us as well. We talked all things music and entertainment in SF.

Enjoy.

John Hell's Best of 2009

This is harder than it appears. I didn't want 1000, or even 100 songs/artists on this list. 21 is good.

It's possible that a couple of these tunes are from 2008. As a matter of fact I can guarantee it. No matter, they came to my attention in '09.
