RA's editorial staff look back on the year.
We're trying something slightly different with our year-end wrap edition of The Hour this time around. This is partly because we just couldn't manage to get everyone in the same place for a couple of hours, and partly because we wanted to bring you more music and more opinions than we have done in past years.
So over the next hour or so you're going to hear some small groups of RA staff and contributors talking about their favourite music and artists from this year, and we'll also have some individual contributors pitching in with their thoughts.
The questions everyone answered were very simple: what was your favourite track, album and performance of 2017?
Here's a Spotify playlist of the tracks featured on this month's show.
