KDHX DJs New Years Party Picks

As 2011 was coming to a close, we asked KDHX DJs to tell us what three songs they would want everyone to hear at the greatest party they could imagine. While we couldn’t find every track (go figure) submitted, we came up with this hour-long variety show. The happy factor starts high, dips in the middle, and comes back strong to end with a kiss. Cheers!
