I've been aware of Daytrotter probably since its creation. So many friends came back to me with stories of this sweet studio somewhere in the Midwest. Being a native Hoosier, I was immediately filled with pride to know that folks were doing amazing things without the need to chase them down in a big city. The list I chose represents exactly what I love about Daytrotter. Some songs are by friends, some by heroes, and some are bands that I would normally never listen to.
