Esoteria: Best of 2019

I very rarely replay songs (or artists for that matter) on my show, but sometimes the songs are so good I want to hear them again. For our current winter fundraiser, I decided to present an hour of the absolute best songs I played in 2019, the ones that got under my skin and into my soul.

Speaking of fundraisers, this show was originally broadcast on Freeform Portland, KFFP-LP/KFFD-LP in Portland Oregon. We’re a completely volunteer run, all freeform, all music station that is only funded by listeners like you. We answer to nobody (except the FCC, of course) which is why the music is always something special. If you can afford to toss a couple of bucks our way (it’s tax-deductible!) please visit
