The days are flying by here! It's hard to believe that this is the last weekend before Christmas! I still have so much to do, and I'm not looking forward to waiting in line at the post office again this year. I swear, next year, I will plan better and get cars and gifts out earlier. And I mean it this time!
Hope you're enjoying the season, and that the rush toward Christmas isn't keeping you from enjoying the holidays! Thanks so much for spending part it with the Sounds of Christmas! I'm doing my best to give you a terrific soundtrack for your card-writing, gift-wrapping and tree-decorating December days and nights! We're now sharing the season with listeners in all 50 states, Washington, DC and 109 other countries!
Just loaded even more music this week, including tracks by My Morning Jacket, Sleeping At Last, THE VOICE's Javier Colon, Roy Holliday, TSO's and Jennifer Cella! You can hear an hour's worth of all the best of the new Christmas music each weeknight at 7:00pm (Eastern) during the New Music Hour!
And don't forget to get in your requests for our All Request Hour! Weekdays at noon (Eastern), you'll hear an sixty minutes' worth of the highest-rated and most-requested songs. So if there's something you want to hear, make sure you send an email to me (or comment below), and I'll do my best to get it on for you!
Looks like lots of movement again on this week's Top Ten. The list is changing every day!
By the way, if you want to help and rate the music we play, you actually have to listen through Live 365, which you can get to by going here --> http://www.live365.com/stations/soundsofchristmas
I also wanted to mention that if you listen through our website, you don't have to stay on the page. If you click on the little double box in the upper right hand corner, the player will pop out, so you can go wherever you want on the web and still listen to the Sounds of Christmas!
So with all that said, here's this week's Top Ten...
1) David Crowder Band "Carol Of The Bells/Christmas Eve (Sarajevo 12/24)”
