Playlist for 1.17.20: Baby, Yer the Best: 2010s (Part 2)

I bring you Part 2 of my favorites of the 2010s. As expected, I didn't get to everything I wanted to play, which happens when you do a weekly, three-hour show. With that in mind, after you listen to the show archive, you can also check out the Spotify playlist (below) that I came up with to pay tribute to my favorite songs since Zero Hour's started in 2009. Keep scrolling, the playlist has more than 1,000 songs. Back to "normal" programming next week!

Playlist for 1.10.20: Baby, Yer the Best: 2010s (Part 1)

My original thought was to look back at Zero Hour's past decade for one week. As I started to put the show together, however, it became abundantly clear I would need at least two weeks to honor my favorites from the '10s. There were so many excellent bands and songs from the last decade, and it's been a total blast to revisit and listen to them again - even if it's been overwhelming at times with the memories they provoke. Thanks to everyone who has listened to the show and all the musicians who have brought me so much fun and joy. I look forward to many more years of Zero Hour and many more musical discoveries. Tune in for Pt. 2 next week, and I'll post a big 'ol, 2010s Spotify playlist then, too. Listen to Pt. 1 now.
