Christmas Old & New

christmasoldandnew

We have two Christmas playlists for you this year. One that explores Christmas songs of old; jazzy carols, big band Christmas anthems from the 30s, 40s and 50s and classics that define the holiday season. The other mix is a completion of Christmas tracks created in the last ten years. New bands reinterpreting Christmas classics as well as creating new ones.

Merry Christmas.
