    Ryan’s Music Picks 🎄Christmas 2018

    Hey there. Thanks for subscribing. I love Christmas music, and it’s all I listen between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’ll have a favorites of 2018 list at some point in January. Spotify Apple Music Buymusic.club (bandcamp playlist!) ⬇️ Joyful Noise Records – Holiday Party, Vol. 2 (Bandcamp) A nicely out-there compilation of Christmas classics. Some indelible…

  • Ryan’s Music Picks 🎄 Christmas 2017 Edition

    It’s been a while. I have long playlists for September, October, November, and December. I’ll put them up one day. Anyway, I am compelled to share new Christmas albums I’ve found this year. Only a couple of them are on the streaming services, so no playlists this time. Jherek Bischoff – Chestnuts Roasting on an…

  • Ryan’s Music Picks 🎄 20 December 2016

    There are 3 or 4 different kinds of Christmas songs, really. There are songs about Santa coming to town, songs about how it’s cold and romance is in the air, songs about the fact that it is winter, and songs about baby Jesus being born. I tend to gravitate to types 3 and 4, but…

    I put together a Christmas mixtape for you. It’s two sides of a 90 minute cassette. (The cassette ended up being a little longer than 90 minutes, actually. Lucky me.)

  • Christmas (Tree) Time

    I love Christmas. I love the weather, the feelings, the giving, the helping, the food, the family, the everything. I just don’t love celebrating Christmas (at all) before Thanksgiving. It just feels wrong to me. So I specifically avoid the “Holiday Decorations” sections in stores and refuse to play any Christmas music before black Friday…
