Former KCRW Music Director and current KCRW DJ Nic Harcourt thought he could get away with not making a top 10 list this year. In his defense, he’s always told me how much he hates doing it. However, LOTS of people starting asking him, including a bunch of folks who wrote in on the comments portion of KCRW’s Top 10 page. So, he finally …
