I would really like to keep score on how many of these “lost (but amazing!) Christmas songs I have collected for you that you actually recognize. Added up together it is a CRAZY collection. I did my best to bring some sense to music that spans exactly 600 years. Yep – from 1420 to 2020 – we celebrate this season.
Or click below to listen to the full show as aired on WPVM FM 103.7 Asheville, NC.
And for those with a Spotify Premium Account here is the link to that version of this show. Most tracks are the same although a few could not be found on Spotify – so I made minor adjustments in those instances.
As a complement to the hour-long radio show I have a few videos for you below.
