Year Three, In Review

Description

Kirk takes a look back at the many musical memories of Strong Songs Year Three.

Year Three is over, and it's time to revisit the songs analyzed, the questions answered, and the interviewees interviewed.

SCHEDULING NOTE: The show will be off for December, and will return for Year Four in January 2022.
