Hello! Today's show was my last of 2014. Isn't it simply bonkers how fast this year has gone by? I can't believe it. The next two Thursdays are Christmas and New Year's Day, so I will not be back in studio until January 8, 2015.
Today's show was fun. :) I played a few cool local tunes, some older classics, and a mix of some traditional and not-so traditional Holiday and wintry tunes.
When I was preparing for the show, I noticed that it was fitting for me to play a Deep Dark Woods song called 18th of December, as that is today's exact date! Whodathunkit?! Sorry, I get a bit weird around the holidays, haha.
