2012 was the biggest year on Daytrotter yet as we posted 970 new sessions! This year also marked the posting of Daytrotter's 2000th session of all-time -- a very special recording with country legend Glen Campbell. Over the course of the last 12 months we welcomed through our doors in Rock Island, Illinois, London, England, San Francisco, California, Asheville, North Carolina, Austin, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee some of the most inspiring and ferociously talented musicians in the land. We've spent an agonizing week trimming that bulky list of greatness down to some slightly more manageable, cream of the crop sizes. Between today and the first day of the new year, we will be posting playlists of what we feel were the Top 200 songs Daytrotter posted this year and the Top 70 Daytrotter sessions of 2012. We of course had a difficult time making these lists this small, but the archive is always here for your happy exploration. So, without further ado, we present to you the Best of This Year In Daytrotter! See you next year. -- Mr. Daytrotter
