December 21, 2007 – 1st Annual Christmas Music Special


Download:  Here

What was played:  For the first time ever, The Arcade does away with all that jibber-jabber about video games, and gets in the holiday mood by doing an entire show of underappreciated Christmas music.  We didn’t just prove that it could be done, we proved that it could be awesome!  Tune in to hear tracks from “Weird Al” Yankovic, Wesley Willis, King Diamond, Tenacious D, Barenaked Ladies, plus a spine-tingling rendition of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas performed by Henry Rollins!
