Sweet & Sour Christmas Goodies at Mondo Diablo

A pair of seasonal shares from Mondo Diablo...

For all you would be Kris Kringles there's a lovely old Andy Williams & the Williams Bros. LP.

For the Grinchier among you there's this slice of yuletide ickyness, it's born-again earnestness begging to be mocked by the cool kids at the Christmas party. (Though it's certainly not the worst or the preachiest of the "Keep Christ in Christmas" records out there.)

Holiday Music on the Net - AccuHolidays

Good news for fellow Christmas early-birds - AccuHolidays Radio is in full force providing more than 20 cool yule tune stations including Celtic Christmas, The Jingle Channel (only plays songs with Jingle in the title) and Chestnuts Roasting (a station dedicated to that open fire and Jack Frost nipping at your nose). There are loads of other sttions to choose from so every one gets to liten merry in their own way.

XM listeners, if you weren't already aware, Holly is already up and running. I just canceled my XM account and the hardest part was knowing I'd have to go without their holiday offerings. (I love XM I just couldn't justify the expense for something i hardly find the time to use)
