As part of our year in review, NPR Music Critic Tim Riley joins us to discuss the music highlights of 2017.
2017 has been a big year for women in pop music. Cardi B became the first woman in 19 years to top the Billboard 100 with "Bodak Yellow," Taylor Swift's "Reputation" was the best selling album of the year, and both Lorde and SZA received critical acclaim.
But, the artist who had the most people talking in 2017 was Kendrick Lamar.
We also cover some classical music favorites of 2017, like the re-release of Glenn Gould playing Bach's Goldberg Variations, and discuss the sexual assault accusations that have roiled the classical music world.
