McQ's Best of 2009 - Recommended Mixes Volume 10 - Nancy's Favorites

Every year, after I finish a rough pass on my mixes, my wife Nancy gives them all a listen and strips out her personal favorites.

Given her singles-oriented rather than album-oriented or thematic approach, her collection of favorites often becomes our listeners' favorite, the best single disk sampling of what the year had to offer.

This year is no exception...Listen/Subscribe on Spotify!
