Show 316: Let’s Talk About Claus – 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 as well as to occasional solemn nod to the season.

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.
