Love the music recommendations!
This is a great podcast to listen to if you want to add more songs to your Christmas playlist every month. There is usually at least one new song I hear about in each episode that I enjoy. The hosts are very entertaining if you like to hear the banter of two guys who have been friends for many years... and who doesn't like that?
Ok, well I need to end this review now, because I literally followed the hosts instructions in the last episode and stole someone's phone to leave the review while they were in the bathroom... and I think they're coming after me now. ;-) Gotta run... but keep up the good work!
I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy a podcast about Christmas music! Looking forward to every episode.
