Show 267: Cool Yule Time Is Here Again!- Playlist and Archived Stream


It is that time of year again. Grab the nog, sport the Santa hats and reindeer antlers, trim the tree and join the Xmess party.

Listen Up! is getting into the holiday spirit with the annual collection of offbeat, cool and zany seasonal musical treats.

Note: While spirited and at times invigorating, these are not traditional holiday singalongs.

Listen Up!: Where the cool, the classic, the corny and even the cringe-worthy collide.

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.
