Amazing

This is one of my favorite podcasts. I listen to some of my favorite past shows throughout December and now is a staple for my Christmas season.

A Delightful Way to Find Different Christmas Music

I discovered this -- and the other podcasts by this host -- earlier this year, and have been saving this one for December.

I listen to one or two episodes a day and enjoy the original songs and different versions of classics that I do not hear elsewhere. This podcast introduced me to a few new favorite artists and has been great for creating a festive mood.
