Sleigh bells ring. Are you listening? If you love to sing along, especially in your car with the volume turned up, November and December may be the best months of the year. Starting November 1st until New Year's Day, XM Satellite Radio broadcasts a Christmas gift to all its listeners. Holly XM channel 103 is a delightful blend of every great standard Christmas song that ever has been sung. What fun!
Holly features an artful combination of nearly every music style with perfect segues and continuity. Where else can you hear Perry Como, Brian Setzer, The Beach Boys, The Supremes, Ella Fitzgerald, Burl Ives and Boney M all together in one place? You'll never hear a song you don't know by heart. How could anyone not like Christmas music? Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!
XM also offers specialized Christmas channels with traditional music from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s, Music City Christmas with a Country edge, classical 'Pops' Christmas music and the ever-wacky Special Xmas. My daughters love Special Xmas all season long as they air everything from kazoo orchestras and dogs barking to songs that are 'so wrong!'
Keep listening to XM and have a very Merry Christmas! Ho, ho, ho!
