Three Ways to Celebrate Christmas Oversoon in Burque

Whirled joy, a river of lights and Tchaikovsky

By Rebecca Gonzales [ Sat Nov 30 2013 3:33 PM ]

Everyone has that friend or family member. The one who unabashedly maneuvers around trick-or-treaters to string up their Christmas lights on Halloween. The one who has been humming Christmas carols for weekshumming only, because singing aloud can have harsh repercussions. The one who already assembled most of their Christmas presents and will soon wrap them, probably while watching their well-worn Elf DVD.

Xmas music that doesn't suck

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Mon Dec 24 2012 1:32 PM ]

At this point in the season, we've all been subjected to a smorgasbord of Xmas muzak that, frankly, is way lame. Gift yourself with holiday sounds that rule. Right now, I'm listening to DJ Mello and DJ Tahnee's holiday-themed Afternoon Freeform on KUNM. These ladies know Christmas music. Listen at kunm.org or tune your dial to 89.9 FM. If you stumble on this blog in an eggnog haze after 4 p.m., access it via KUNM's two-week archive.

If you're in the mood for obscuro Xmas tunes, check out my Jingle and Jingle playlist from last year. It features boss tracks by The Dirtbombs, Mono Men, Nadroj & The Wolrats, The Honeymoon Killers, Thee Headcoatees, James White, Alien Sex Fiend, Culturcide, The Magnetic Fields, Maddox Brothers and Rose, Johnny Cash, Bumble Bee Slim, Jimmy Witherspoon, Victoria Spivey and Vera Ward Hall. Stream it below. Happy listening, y'all!
