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.

It is exactly one year later and we return to the Christmas season. A year of firsts. And all thanks to the good people at WPVMFM in Asheville, NC. My show on WPVM FM (Asheville, NC) started my “career” in radio and I will be forever grateful to Jim Navé, Davyne and Herb. And also to Eitan Battat who started WERB in April and has been like a brother to me. These people have been instrumental in making my first year in radio simply amazing!
