Thanks to Mark “Slim” Stevens for covering for me on this Christmas Day. Looks like there was a lot of cool music on the show, especially the blues.

Christmas music from around the world on this holiday edition of Global Beat. Creole zydeco tunes, classics redone w/ a flamenco feel, Hawaiian swing or an African flavor.

“Christmas In Dub” (Part 2)

DJ Baby Swiss goes solo in a seasonal stylee…as Dr. StrangeDub was out of town for Christmas. Highlights include “A Long Wintry Sigh,” Likkle Mai’s contribution to “Reggae with Snow Lovers,” a companion volume to “Reggae with Xmas Lovers” that makes its Echo Chamber debut this week. Also turning up is Fred Schneider’s B-52s side-project The Superions, twice, from “Destination… Christmas!” And look for usual suspects Jah Iriest, Peter Broggs, Joe Gibbs, The Aggrovators and Granville Williams peppering the playlist with the Yard Christmas classics we all remember. So don’t let all the crap the world throws at you stop you from having some fun at its expense. As Pauline Black and The Selecter say, “Skank ‘til Christmas!”

Today’s show incorporated Ellen Stanley’s Women Folk so Rollin & Tumblin actually lasted 4 and a half hours today instead of 2 and a half. In honor of the season, I played party music to help folks complete all the holiday tasks they had yet to do. So instead of holiday music, and instead of taking the A-Train today, folks got to ride on the KFAI Soul Train.

Christmas Eve special hosted by Lady J!
