I'm sorry but I just couldn't do an entire Christmas show. I've been just listening to too much good music that had to get on the air.
On the newbies list this week: Buzzround's new self-titled CD is definitely worth checking out. On the holiday front/new release: Zee Avi and Neil Halstead are two epic Xmas tunes and are on the new Brushfire Christmas CD.
Don't forget that on January 6th I'm going to do a show around my favorite Americana albums of the year and on January 13th I'm going to count down my top-20 Americana songs of 2008.
