JC nerd 2012

Un tipo de fiar, Juan Carlos. Gusto exquisito que demostró pinchando selecta música en el bar que regentó durante años, el lamentablemente desaparecido Badlands barcelonés. Y que sigue demostrando año tras año, remitiéndonos listados de los discos o canciones que considera lo mejor de la cosecha anual. En esta ocasión no hemos resistido la tentación de compartir su selección de las mejores versiones publicadas en el año recién finalizado. Ahí van sus veintiséis perlas…
