The next Weird Christmas podcast is all about the strangest Christmas music I can find. Honestly, I’ve got way more than I could fit into hours of podcasts. So this is probably the first of many.
So much of this is inspired by Jim Nayder’s Annoying Music Show that used to air on NPR. Nayder died a couple years back, so this is partly my way of saying thanks to him.
Also, I only play clips on the podcast, but if, for some godforsaken reason, you want the entire songs, here they are:
“Christmas in Jail” – The Youngsters
“Santa Claus Boogie” – Hasil Adkins
“Christmas Fever” – Timmy Christmas
“Drummer Boy” – Marlene Dietrich
“Is Santa Really Six Foot Four” – Kay Brown
“We Three Kings” – Eban Schletter
“Happy Birthday Jesus” – Little Cindy
“Fat Daddy” – Paul “Fat Daddy” Johnson
“Christmas Eve Can Kill You” – Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie “Prince” Billy
Link for Drummer boy Marlene Dietrich is actually the one for Kay Brown
Whoops! I’ll fix it asap.
I know you must be busy, but any way you can make a show of the best ones in full? I’ve searched and can’t find any playlists of the sort. Thanks just found your show and love it!
Thanks! I probably won’t just because the full songs are more likely to get pulled from various podcast apps. But I’ve got a buddy putting together a Spotify playlist. I haven’t done much more music stuff because other people (podcasts and bloggers) know so much more than me. Check out the Jingle Jank Podcast and ChristmasUnderground.com and http://www.stubbyschristmas.com/ for a lot more good stuff, tho.
