Womenfolk's Top CD's of 2009

So I have been most remiss in posting my playlists here, but I did want to make sure to post today's best of 2009 show. Should you be curious as to what other things I've been playing the last month or two, you can check out all past playlists here.

Today's show featured the Top CD's of 2009 as determined by 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's to another great year of music!
