CHIRP Playlist: Friday, December 23, 2011

In honor of Christmas Eve Eve, I peppered my show last night with some holiday-esque songs. It was delightful. Although, I decided that next year, if I’m still on the air, I’m going to aim to play nothing but depressing, sad bastard music on the holidays. I’ll be back next week on New Year’s Eve Eve, for your sonic enjoyment.
