December 22/18 – January 4/19 – 12th Annual Christmas Music Special

Friends, the holiday season is firmly upon us and what better way to feel the warmth of the season than with our 12th annual Christmas Music Special.  As we have with all of our past Christmas Music Specials, we endeavor to bring you some holiday songs that you probably haven’t heard before because, by this point, Jingle Bell Rock is rocked out and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is hard to take after the 786th listen.

On the show this year, we bring you a festive assortment of musical treats spanning different countries, eras, and genres too.  We start things off with some “prime cuts” from the new holiday album by recently released by William Shatner.  After that experience, we go back in time to a bygone era to experience some classic soul Christmas music from the likes of Stevie Wonder, James Brown, and the recently departed Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.  From there, the show makes a hard left turn and comes home for an all-Canadian Christmas group which spans the country by including the Crash Test Dummies, Dan Mangan, the Barenaked Ladies, and the late Rita MacNeil.  Closing out the show, we wanted to lift you up out of your chair and get you moving, so we put together a little bit of a Christmas dance party.  Because, why wouldn’t we?  Getting you bopping around will be tunes from Dragonette, John Legend, Dinosaur Jr., Eton John, and RuPaul.

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 enjoy this show, and we wish all of you out there a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
