Meow That's What I Call Mewsic! 2016

Hyuna Moon (문현아) of Nine Muses feat. Moya & Hoya 집으로 들어가는 길이 좋아 (I Like My Way Back Home)

November 22nd marked the 60th anniversary of The Humane Society of the United States. In celebration of all furry (and feathered/scaly/gilled) friends, I've decided to make a meow mix: composed entirely of songs about cats or featuring cats! I've thrown in a few doggy songs, too. Why kitties, you ask? Because I love them❤️  Look how cute they are! Watch the video above without gushing. C'est impossible! In all honesty, though, 2016 has been an emotional year. I felt that we could all use some cute therapy.

Whether you fancy yourself a cat, dog, bunny, bird, dinosaur, etc. person; I hope that you'll enjoy today's dander-free show.

Visit the Hawaiian Humane Society.

(Some of) the Best of 2016

Daniel Caesar Japanese Denim [live at q Studio for q on CBC]

Today's show featured a smattering of songs released in 2016, all of which I personally enjoy. I present them to you in an order which I felt flowed best. There were so many more tracks that I would have liked to have played, but alas. It's impossible to compress a year's worth of music down to three hours, but ya gotta make do with whatcha got, am I right? I've included links for all artists/remixers. Enjoy! psst...most of them are (legit) free downloads.
