Jacques Granger (an office worker in Memphis, Tennessee) gives in and gives us his top lists of 2017. He hosts “Songs From The Floorboards“,  an hour of mostly post-punk, electronic music, dub, and disco every Wednesday night at 10:00 Eastern/9:00 Central. The show is re-aired every Sunday at noon Eastern/11:00 Central. Only on Radio Nope.

Note from Jacques: Please feign interest in these self-indulgent lists of music released in 2017 that I enjoyed. They’re not comprehensive because I had to stop at some point.
