1/3/2010 Womenfolk


Today on Womenfolk we highlighted the *Top CD's of 2009* as determined by you--listeners, artists, DJ's and writers. As always, there were more albums than I had time to get to, but I included all the top vote getters, including our #1 release of the year--Pieta Brown's Red House debut _Shimmer_. If you missed today's show, you can hear the archived version here.

Thanks to all of you who helped make 2009 such a great year for Womenfolk by listening, spreading the word to your friends and pledging your support to KFAI Community Radio...here's to another great year of music! -efs.
