Playlist: Episode #817, December 22, 2019

Today’s show is full of great, classic Christmas songs that definitely do not suck. We also threw in a few non-holiday requests just for fun. From us here at Tell the Band to Go Home, we wish all of our listeners, supporters, and friends, a very Merry Christmas (if that’s your thing.) Even if it’s not, we hope you find fun and fellowship with family and/or friends, as well as some great music, this time of year and always!

We probably won’t be on next Sunday, but tune in Friday, December 27, 11 am to 11 pm for another Epic Mudge Marathon on UMFM! It’s bound to get weird, but we plan on having a bunch of fun doing it.
