Dec. 16-Dec. 30, 2016 – 10th Annual Christmas Music Special

Around this time of year, everybody has certain traditions that they look forward to and we here at The Arcade are no different, which is why we’re proud to present to you our 10th Annual Christmas Music Special.  Yes, you read that correctly, this is our tenth time doing a special show for the holidays and in all that time, our goal of bringing you Christmas music you’ve never heard before has never changed.  If anything, we’ve learned in these past ten years that the world of Christmas music is almost endless, and the amount we get exposed to each season represents only a small fraction of what’s out there.

As tradition dictates on these shows, we start off with the Ludicrous Leadoffs, those Christmas songs that are just an extra kind of special, and this year, we have Bill Murray and George Clooney crooning, a song about a zombie Christmas, and a ridiculous parody of the overplayed song Do They Know It’s Christmas.  From there, we go to a totally unique genre with dubstep covers of classic Christmas music, before showcasing something special for our friends of the Jewish faith with a collection of songs all about Hanukkah. We end off this year’s program by bookending our Halloween music show.  If you recall, that episode began with silly hip-hop songs which were lacking in street cred.  Well, on this show, we present seasonally-appropriate songs from hip-hop artists with immense street cred, such as Snoop Doggy Dogg, Busta Rhymes, and even Eazy-E himself.  Yes, Eazy-E did a Christmas song, and yes, it’s every bit as explicit as you think it might be.  You’ve been warned.

As always, we encourage you to follow the iTunes links below to purchase these songs for yourself and add them to your collection.  We hope you this show as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together, and we wish all of you out there a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Dec. 18, 2015-Jan. 1, 2016 – 9th Annual Christmas Music Special

Friends, it’s that time once again when we get in the festive spirit and bring you a bundle of Christmas cheer with our 9th Annual Christmas Music Special!  Year after year, too many of the same Christmas songs are played over and over again, which is why we’ve put together a great line-up of seasonal songs you won’t find anywhere else.  Did you know there are booty-call Christmas songs out there?  Well, we’ll play some from Steel Panther and RuPaul.  We’ll also revisit the Christmas episodes from some of your favourite 90’s cartoons with songs from Ren and Stimpy, Animaniacs, Dexter’s Lab, Goof Troop, and Bump In The Night.  The heavier side of the musical spectrum gets visited with songs focused on Krampus, but we’ll bring you back up with a selection of surf-pop Christmas ditties.  As always, we encourage you to follow the iTunes links below to purchase these songs for yourself.  So tune in, turn on, and enjoy a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays us here at The Arcade.
