There Won’t Be Any Music Played Here

I remember the first time I heard those 7 words. I almost turned off the podcast. I am so happy that I didn’t! Ken has proven to me that talking about music can be as enjoyable as listening to it. Plus, Ken has a media network and his podcast led me to his music station — which is simply incredible. As a fan of both Christmas and Halloween music, I have it on throughout the year and am impressed by his vast collection. All of this, and I haven’t even mentioned the great guests. If you like Yuletide music, and want to learn more about it, don’t go anywhere else.

Awesome podcast

Ken puts together a great show, interviewing musicians, content creators, people in the christmas community, and talking about christmas music! If you enjoy christmas music at all, this is the podcast for you!
