KXSF Top 102.5 Songs of 2020

Editor

As it happens every year, your KXSF DJs got together (virtually, of course) and voted for their favorite tracks of the year. The result is magnificent as it represents the collective taste of a group of music lovers and nerds. But indeed, this is not a celebration to KXSF, this is, instead, a celebration to the bands, musicians and artists that, with their music, helped us navigate the rough waters of 2020.
