Sound Session #581 (1/8/17) – Best of 2016

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on January 10th, 2017 by Hyphen


It’s been a few weeks since our last episode, and a few months since we’ve broadcast from the friendly confines of the KUBE studio, but we are back in full effect!  My ESPN assignment in Australia has ended and Sound Session is home again in Seattle.  Good news is that it’s still 30 degrees outside for me.  Bad news is that last week, it was Celsius and now it’s Fahrenheit.

Other that the cold and the whole “is he going to kill us all” cloud hanging in the air, it’s great to be back home.  Shout to everyone I met in Australia, which low key might be the best place on earth.  There are literally 3 things wrong with that country: it’s really far away, the wifi isn’t great, and they won’t let you hold a koala without “proper accreditation.”  I will definitely be back, as soon as I figure out what paperwork is needed…

We kicked off 2017 by looking back and broadcasting our Best of 2016 picks.  DJ Nphared sat in on co-hosting duties and we ran through all sorts of crazy records, running out of time far before we ran out of heatrocks.  The world may end in 2017, but at least we’ll have one hell of a soundtrack.  Music is in a great place.
