The Most Awesomest Songs of the Day

This category rose out of the “stay home, stay safe” days of the coronavirus pandemic. Normal broadcasting at my radio station, WHFR, was suspended for classical music. I was looking for something to fill my broadcast void. I continued to listen to music at a comparable pace as before, but I wanted to do something to stay in contact with listeners and followers, as well as the artists. I decided to highlight one song a day! On this page, I am compiling a master list that will build over time, and can be explored for someone looking for mostly new music.

These are “The Most Awesomest Songs of the Day!”

Hope you enjoy the list and please feel free to share!
