CD of the Week

Every week, WCRB staff select a CD to feature on-air and online. Learn all about each week's CD, including links to purchase each one, here.

In the words of Laura Carlo, 2017 has been a year of musical riches. Here's the proof: each member of our staff picked a favorite from this year's catalog of CDs of the Week - and nobody picked the same album! May 2018 provide the same bounty!
