2018-In–Review: Pop; As Aired on 12/20/2018

This year, I probably listened to more pop than I have in many years. With my daughter and stepdaughter being teenagers, they turned me onto a lot of music I might not have otherwise discovered. With that said, Pop is the shortest episode of the year-in-review for 2018, but it did get its own episode. I did combine it with Christian Contemporary as I honestly didn’t hear enough from Christian music to put together a best-of-the-year show. That may change in future years.

As with Rock and Country, there are playlists available on Apple Music which I’ve put together, and they have more songs on them than what I squeezed into the show.

This one aired originally the afternoon of December 20, 2018. It was also rebroadcast after the rock segment on New Year’s Eve. Enjoy!
