All I want for Christmas

I found this podcast last year in November.
Became a fan right away. Duane has made great podcast and I love the music played during each episode. The only complain is only one per month.
Keep them comin.

Rockin around the Christmas Tree

Duane does an excellent job with this merry delight. I’ve added many new songs to my Christmas playlist from his suggestions.
