A Playlist for 2008: Meat's Sweet Treats.
In the first of a series commemorating the best of 2008, Luke Meat, Music Director at CiTR in Vancouver, puts together a playlist of some of his favourite tracks of the year.
Luke Meat contributes our first playlist. As the Music Director at CiTR Radio in Vancouver, Luke gets to listen to an awful lot of new music over the year. With so much to choose from, picking favourites can be a challenge, but you know, if you listen to enough music you get to be pretty discriminating .
Luke also hosts the program Anoize (see the !earshot profile) and is also one of the instigators behind the Value Village People. You can catch his show, which is a whole different thing than this list, streaming live or on podcast at www.citr.ca.
