Joshua Geesaman’s Top 25

(aired 5/25/12)

Joshua Geesaman

This show was a special opportunity to include a co-host from afar. My friend Joshua Geesaman lives in Pennsylvania, and he has always inspired me with his unique taste, creative skills and refreshing perspectives.

I recently saw Josh posting messages on his Facebook page about songs he has appreciated in his life. It made me realize those picks would be a perfect theme for Maya’s Mix! He kindly stepped up to the invitation, sharing his top 25 favorite songs of all time. You’ll now get to hear this diverse mix of rich music, as well as audio recordings of Josh sharing why he chose them.
