Producer Notes:

If selecting the best albums of the year is not void of subjectivity, choosing the individual songs that stood out is even more personal and varied.  Even if critics agree on an artist or album, chances are they won't pick the same song when it comes to choosing favorites or stand-outs.  This is why we take 2 full weeks every year on UTR to highlight some of the many songs cited by our critics - yet we don't try to compile votes or create a countdown.  It's really a celebration of songs that really WOW'ed at least one of our critics.  I love these shows, because I always find gems that really connected with others on the panel.  They all have really great taste in music, so as I say on the show, these are a collection of A+++ songs.  This is the first episode I recorded since the passing of Andrae Crouch, so we saw it fitting to play one of his classics as a Radar Rewind (and it's nearly 4 decades old)!  (Dave)
