Silver Apples

#119 – Some good things about 2016 (best of 2016 pt 1)

As part of our best of 2016 series, we kick off December with Gareth and Anthony discussing and sharing their favourite vinyl purchases from the year just gone. It makes for a somewhat different ‘best of the year’ show, with records from pre-2016 and a large dose of 12″ singles that won’t get a look-in elsewhere where LPs reign. It’s the usual mix of genres, what else would you expect?
