Show 028: Mr. Claus Is Rising – Archived Stream and Playlist


It is Christmas Eve. Your afternoon excuse  for a holiday hoopla filled with weird and wonderful seasonal tunes is right here. While spirited and at times invigorating, these are not traditional holiday singalong. Come on ye krispy kringles, ’tis the season, so step away from the button down world, deck the halls and have a cool yule of a time.

Follow the Listen Up! Blog and/or “like” the show on Facebook. Both serve as and addendum and means to interact with the program.
