Thursday 12/12/02

The ballots are in and counted and on this show we unveil the Top 25 CDs for 2002 from the listeners of Echon Echoes, a music soundscape from P-R-I, Public Radio International on Echoes. This special two hour show will play a track from (almost) every CD. This year the choices are less obvious than most so anything could happen.
