Episode #920

Christmas may be officially done for another year, but there’s been a lot going on the past few weeks, so we haven’t heard many of our annual favourites, so today we pull out all the stops and play some of the essentials that we haven’t gotten to and just can’t go a year without hearing. We also ease out of the holiday season with some Christmas songs that… aren’t, but you can get away with calling Christmas songs. Finally, in the tradition of holiday marathons of years gone by, we’re stretching out and taking over The Love and Happiness Hour at 4 pm on UMFM and playing some of my favourite L&H H classic rock, guilt and shame-free, just for fun!
