Christmas Show 2014 - 12/12/14

It's Christmastime, and there's no need to be afraid. At Christmastime, we let in light and we banish shade. Those lyrics sang by Band Aid some 30 years ago and then by some new version of it now have never been more true nor ridiculous. Thus, I didn't play that song during tonight's episode but I did include other festive tracks by some punk, post punk, new wave, ska, oi, indie, and alternative bands who did seem to know it was Christmas.

Just in case you didn't know, click on the link below and consider yourself Merry Christmas wished by me:
