Maybe it's a New Year's resolution. Maybe we want to dispel the myth that newspaper editors live in a bubble and aren't living, breathing people like everyone else. Or maybe we just want to share more music with the world.
Whatever it is, City is proud to launch a new weekly feature, "What We're Spinning," which every Tuesday will give you a personal look inside the brains, and music playlists, of various City editors and staff members. And, just because we love you, when possible, we'll even find the song for you. Are your ears ready?
