First off, Happy New Year to all. The first Boudin Barndance of 2019 amounted to a look back at favorite releases from 2018 with the last half of the show devoted to our top dozen for the year. In addition to the radio, I’ve been contributing reviews to the Southern Rhode Island Newspapers since 1992 (save for a few years stretch). You can check out a wrap-up of 2018 Barndance favorites at:
