ADAM’S TOP 40 FLASHBACK: December 11, 2016

The new bops in town.

It’s the start of another weekend, which means it’s time for another trip back into the archives on Adam’s Top 40 Flashback! Every Saturday, the day before my latest top 40 goes up for the week, I feature the highlights of a past countdown.
