2018 Playlists

Every month I make a new music playlist. I usually do this while I’m avoiding work at my desk. I’ve started doing these playlists in 2013 and I just post them online for anyone interested ( here’s last year ). I like going back and listening to old playlist just like the old mixtapes I used to make. I generally try to only include new releases for each month. Sometimes these will include reissues and remastered releases from that month. I keep statistics and track my listening habits at https://davidawindham.com/studio/music/ and http://radio.davidawindham.com/. If you see anything I missed last year, please let me know.
