2010 Advent Playlist

It’s an advent calendar of music! We all know that the whole of December is an excuse to foist highly questionable seasonal songs on the American populace. In hopes of offering a salve for your Kenny G and Trans-Siberian Orchestra assaulted nerves, I’m digging out some less-frequently played and hopefully more tolerable tunes. Every day I’ll add another Christmas song to the playlist for your enjoyment. Tis’ the season afterall.
