Musicnet Final Summary for the Year

Kia ora tātou

This is the last summary of the year before I take a break from moderating the list for 4 weeks. I’ll keep distributing emails until the end of this friday.  I’ll be back checking my email and moderating this list again from the 20th Jan


Thanks to everyone who is a member of this list. Special thanks to those that posted a question or a response. Including the contributions to ‘One thing you changed this year’. Whilst some topics make regular appearances, others surprise me. 


I encourage you all to take as much of a break as you can, otherwise you’ll begin the year already tired!
