This year’s musical excursion is with Jim Goodwin who writes (curates?) Christmas Underground. We talk about the world of Christmas mixes and he gives some of his picks from this year’s crop of new music (and some old ones you may not know).
Other blogs mentioned:
- Stubby’s House of Christmas
- Christmas A Go Go
- Lie in the Sound
- Snowflakes Singles
- For more, check out Jim’s blogroll at Christmas Underground.
And he’s not a year-long Christmas site, but my favorite annual Christmas music show is by Old Man Freakboy on his show Hey You Kids! GET OFF MY LAWN! (Full disclosure: I’ve been on it. But it’s still my favorite fer realz). You can get all of his holiday shows here.
