J's Indie/Rock Podcast - Christmas Edition 2009

Hey, folks. I hope you're having a happy holiday season so far. J's Indie/Rock Mayhem is on holiday break this week, but I'll be back next Wednesday with the 8th Annual J's Indie/Rock Top 25 Albums of the Year. It's going to be an amazing show.

In the meantime, in what I hope will be the first of a number of non-radio podcasts in the coming year, I wanted to share with you my first attempt at a homemade podcast for the Christmas season. Since I didn't get to do the usual Christmas show this year, I've whipped together a few of my favorite holiday songs into a handy podcast that clocks in at just over an hour. This means it's perfect for downloading and burning to CD or putting on your mp3 player for the car trips over the coming days. There's a mix of classic and heartwarming moments, some hilarious, ribald and mildly sacrilegious ones as well. In other words, something for everyone. Check out the download link and track list below. As usual, the podcast is also available via iTunes.

Happy holidays and I'll see you next week!
