As they have for the last several years, a few of the WTJU announcers look back at some of their favorite 2019 releases (with one or two late 2018 and early 2020 pre-releases making the cut). Because there were so many wonderful releases by local acts, most of the announcers chose to limit their lists to those outside the Charlottesville area.
