Show 175: It’s That Cool Yule Time Again! – Playlist and Archived Stream


Every year Listen Up! features a seasonal Christmas show filled with holiday hoopla and weird and wonderful seasonal tunes. While spirited and at times invigorating, these are not traditional holiday singalong.

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