We lost David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Phife Dawg, Alan Vega, Sharon Jones and more.
But there was a bright side: we were gifted amazing records from Angel Olsen, Radiohead, Nick Cave, ANOHNI, PJ Harvey, to name but a few.
We celebrated some big anniversaries (40 Years of Punk, 25 Years of ‘Treaty’) and welcomed back some old favourites (Midnight Oil, Crowded House).
For the final J Files of 2016, we’re going to try our best to wrap up this enormous year in music.
Join Myf Warhurst for the 2016 J Files from 8pm AEDT, Thursday 15 December.
