Which CDs did they reach for the most, or, uh, “click on” the most in their iTunes players? Find out as KEXP looks at each DJ’s list through the month of December, leading up to our 2010 Top 90.3 Countdown, as voted on by YOU, the KEXP listener, airing Monday, January 3rd.

    That list is almost as beautiful and dazzling as she is, too! Love that smile, and could live listening to her DJ sets forever. Happy new year, Hannah!

    I just shared this list on my Facebook page, writing: “In a sea of indie mediocrity, Hannah Levin is one of the few DJs on KEXP who carries the flag for real rock ‘n’ roll. They don’t give her nearly enough airtime – the day she was filling in for Kevin Cole on the afternoon show was the best few hours of music I’ve heard on that station in a long time.”

    Keep up the good work Hannah – great list! (I’d add Grinderman 2 myself, but there’s a couple of things there I haven’t heard, so I’m gonna go check ‘em out now!)
