Ruby Slippers December 18 THE CHRISTMAS SHOW 7-8 pm

Hey everybody!

HO HO HO!!! and a MERRY MERRY too!!!

This is the Christmas show playlist. As is often the case at CIUT we go to a fill in/prerecorded format on December 25 to give all the programmers a chance to spend time with family and friends.

Hence the Xmas Xtravaganza a week in advance.

There are old favorites from years gone by (who hasn't experienced Present Face first hand?), wishful thinking (First Snow Of The Year) , insane novelty songs to make you laugh in the midst of a tinsel explosion and eggnog overload and of course if time permits WHAM!!!!!!!

Of course there is also new music from here and there and everywhere. 

Hope this adds to your merriment and as they say in the funny papers (?) see you next year!**

And as always, thanks for listening

**as in January 1

Present Face ... Garfunkel and Oates
First Snow of the Year ... Hawksley Workman *
Polished Wood ... Pith and Parenchymas *
Wasted Love ... City and Colour *
Bad Lieutenant ... The Sheepdogs *
Superman ... Dune Rats 
Run Run Rudolph ... The Dollyrots
Ruby ... Kid Kool * (emerging artist)
100 Shopping Days Til Christmas ... The Russian Futurists *
Home By Christmas ... Moonglasses *
Child of Grace ... Skellig * (reminds me of an early Murray McLaughlin)
Wintersong ... Sarah McLaughlin *
Santa Claus Medley ... (here's where it gets weird) Jingle Cats and Dogs
Frank The Christmas Turkey ... Antsy McClain et al (relax I am vegetarian, it's just kinda funny)
Christmas on Acid ... The Vestibules 
Start Wearing Purple ... Gogol Bordello
Rudolph The Paranoid Reindeer ... ToToM
