We’ve almost made it through this year and have the final “Friday Drive of 2021 coming your way. 2021 may not have been a great year for some and although it could have been better in some respects, personally, I feel the year gifted us with some amazing music! This week’s I’m doing a run through of some of the music that stood out for me chosen from new releases from 2021. Won’t be a scientific top of the charts, more of an arbitrary mix of what will fit in the next two hours. My guess is there will be a follow up or part two and maybe three in the first couple of weeks of 2022. So glad you’re all here thank you for sharing your NYE Friday evening or whenever you may be listening and hope you enjoy the ride! Thank you for taking the time and for all your support & comments! Wishing you all infinite health, prosperity and love and freedom in 2022! Hope we can all get together in person unmasked, indoors! Thank you for taking the time on Friday evenings or whenever you may be listening on demand Until next year, week and Friday! Be good to each other and lets try and treat each other with kindness! Extra curriculars: If you feel you’re not getting enough from the Friday Drive you can always check out the archive links going back at least three years. And if that’s still not enough you can always join me most Thursdays & Saturdays! 20h | Thursday/Saturday *sometimes Tuesday
