Hear the Listening Parties Again!

HEY GANG!!! WE DID IT!!!! We listened to a cut from each of the 113 albums submitted as part of this year's NL RPM Challenge, and it was amazing. I just want to say thanks again to all of you again for making this year another huge success for the challenge here in Newfoundland & Labrador. If you couldn't make it down to Rocket or tune in live, both events are archived on YouTube. Brace yourself for 9 hours of interviews and amazing music.
