258 Ten

Ten years ago the first episode of the Contrast Podcast was published. It was originally just a bit of fun between bloggers and I never expected it to last quite so long. It grew into quite a wonderful beast and then went quiet for a while, but now it’s back and perhaps, dare I suggest, more contrasty than it’s ever been. To celebrate the anniversary I have invited ten contributors who took part in the first ten episodes to choose songs based on the theme of ten, most of which were released in the last ten years. Long may the wonderful contrastitude continue.
