What song defined 2020 for you? Call in Wednesday, Dec. 23. between noon and 2 p.m. ET.

It's the most wonderful time of the year ... for Vermont Edition's annual music show, that is! Join us at noon on Wednesday, Dec. 23, for two hours of song, story and reflection.We want to know: What music was most meaningful to you in 2020? What songs captured moments of levity or kept you going during the hardest parts of the pandemic? What songs spurred your creativity in isolation, had you dancing in your socks or singing in your car? Were their albums that brought you home, or closer -- even if in spirit -- to loved ones?

Tell us what moved you and why!
