Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), Episode 49: 2020 in Music

Chris and Brian run down some of their favorite records of 2020, as well as some older records that they discovered this year.

Welcome to Amazin’ Avenue Audio (The Show), the new/old favorite from Amazin’ Avenue editors Chris McShane and Brian Salvatore.

Every year, Brian and Chris close out the year with a look back at some of their favorite music from 2020. This year was a weird one, so instead of the traditional five albums from this year, each host picked three from 2020 and two older records that were new to them this year.
