Show 420: The 2013 Holiday Spectacular




1 This is a Christmas special like none other. Holiday music collector and expert Andy Cirzan scours record stores, dustbins and basements to find the best and most unique tunes for the season. And each year he treats Sound Opinions listeners to a much-anticipated hour of music and a free mix to download. This year is Rock 'n' Pop Xmas--surprising holiday selections from some of the best bands in music history--XTC, The Band, The Kinks, The Beach Boys and more.

*As a special bonus, listeners are invited to download Andy Cirzan's accompanying holiday compilation for FREE at christmas.soundopinions.org. The mix will only be up until the end of 2013, so get it while the yule log is hot! And happy holidays from Sound Opinions!
