Pop Dr(((O)))nes: Episode 32

One last post of 2009ness, promise. This week's show is dedicated to my favorite tracks from 2009 that appeared on either a 12 inch EP or full length LP. 90 minutes was not quite enough to cover it all, but this week's show here is about as good as I can offer. Not a lot of surprises for those that have been following the Pop Drones show since its inception last May, but its definitely an excellent primer for those just catching up.
