podcast_mic.jpgHappy Thanksgiving, everybody. Thanksgiving is a time of many time-honored traditions. One of these traditions, of course, is the kickoff of the holiday season. Yuletide is now upon us here in the United States, and with it, a bevy of similarly time-honored seasonal music. Todd Haemmerle joins me to get into the musicology of Christmas songs. We look at the major-key 18th century singalongs, the minor-key carols that surfaced during the 19th century, and the twenty-year flood of timeless holiday music that began just prior to World War II.
Thanks for listening,

    Thanks for creating such a wonderful site! Is there a way to select only instrumental tracks? I tried creating a station by selecting a specific song that had no vocals, and "thumbs-upping" all other non-vocal selections for that station, but, no go. Is "vocal" not a gene that I may discard?
