December 15-29, 2017 – 11th Annual Christmas Music Special

Friends, the holiday season is now upon and what better way to celebrate than with our 11th annual Christmas Music Special.  It’s easy to get bored and tired of the same Christmas songs year in and year out, which why we’ve have our noses to the grindstone working hard to dig up some rare gems you won’t hear anywhere else.

On this year’s program, we turn to the world of video games for the first-time ever for some new seasonal favorites from Nights into Dreams, Super Mario 3D World, Blue Stinger, Sonic 3D Blast, Mario Kart 8, and Parasite Eve: The 3rd Birthday.  Yes, you read that right, music from a Parasite Eve game has found its way onto one of our Christmas specials.  From the new, modern art form of video games, we pivot and dabble in the art form of classic comedy from the National Lampoon.  After starting life as a successful comedy publication, the National Lampoon branched out and began a syndicated radio show in the 1970’s.  During its brief run, the National Lampoon Radio Hour gave us two Christmas specials, which we’ll share some of the best clips from.  Cold winter weather got you down?  Don’t frown, because we’ll be giving you warm vibes with a few reggae holiday songs from Yellowman.  Rounding out this year’s program, we turn the show into a drag queen Christmas, because yes, that’s totally a thing.  If you’ve watched any of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you’re likely already familiar with names such as Jackie Beat, Jinkx Monsoon, and Bob the Drag Queen.  But did you know a number of contestants from past seasons of Drag Race have come together to form the Christmas Queens?  And they have released a few, highly entertaining Christmas albums?  Don’t worry, we’ll fill you in on all that you’ve been missing.

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.

Programming Note:  We’ll be taking the next three weeks off due to a little thing called “life” getting in the way of our recording schedule.  Mostly, it’s Dennis who is the one to blame for this.  Why?  He’s moving into a new place!  Though this is an exciting time, as anybody who has moved into a new residence can attest to, it’s a time-consuming and an all-encompassing task.  Having said that, let us reassure you that we will be back with a new episode for you on Friday, October 7th.
