This coming Thursday, December 24, I’ll be playing a selection of Christmas/winter/holiday tunes on my show from 3 to 5 p.m. I won’t be playing the usual songs you’ve been hearing 24/7 on other radio stations for the past month, however. You’ll hear covers and original songs from the likes of Yo La Tengo, Daniel Johnston, and The Flaming Lips, as well as songs by local groups including Megafaun and Schooner. So, tune in this Thursday, Christmas Eve, from 3 to 5 p.m. for a set of Christmas tunes you aren’t tired of hearing
