21 December 2010


I LOVE YEAR-END-LISTS, mostly because they give me the chance to collect suggestions from friends and colleagues. I've asked a number of folks to submit their own favorites of 2010 to The Disinhibitor, and I'll start posting them over the holidays while I'm traveling to and fro. To get us started, here are my favorite records this year (those I actually spun the most over the past twelve months). Feel free to submit your own favorite things (art, film, music, books) here: michaelthomascross {{AT}} hotmail <> com.
