CHIRP Radio Best of 2017

Throughout December, CHIRP Radio presents its volunteers’ top albums of 2017. Our next list is from DJ and Assistant Music Director Doug Mosurock.

This list covers new albums by current groups. Reissues and singles will be listed some other place. These are some of the records I spent time with and enjoyed in 2017. Hopefully you'll dig into some of these and get on my level. Time to break ruts and avoid easy choices.
