With the holiday season here, remember, for a great collection of alternative (and traditional) holiday tunes, hit up WOXY’s Holiday Mixer. From Bing Crosby to the Kinks, there’s something for everyone =) Don’t wait too long, as it goes off the air January 1st (I believe).
From their website:
From now through the New Year, we’re pleased to offer up the WOXY HOLIDAY MIXER! This unique 24/7 collection features hundreds of seasonal tunes and is filled with unique renditions of your holiday favorites by modern rockers from around the globe. We have a little bit of something for everyone. This year, we’ve added almost 100 new tracks to the mix from bands like Frightened Rabbit, Low, Goldfrapp, Gentleman Auction House, Rogue Wave, Blitzen Trapper, Evangelicals, Jason Collett, and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. You’ll also hear modern rock faves like Sufjan Stevens, Belle and Sebastian, My Morning Jacket, The Flaming Lips, and Yo La Tengo heavily featured in the music mix along with some things you might not expect (like tracks from “A John Waters Christmas”, Pee Wee Herman, or Spinal Tap).
To balance out all the modern rock tunes, we have a nice mix of classic tracks from artists like Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and James Brown. You’ll also hear some of these truly vintage artists get a more contemporary spin off of compilations like the new “Verve Remixed Christmas” CD. To round things out a little more, we’ve also included some tunes about winter, snow falling, and the month of December, mainly because we know you can only hear “Jingle Bells” so many times…
A lot of the tracks we selected are out-of-print or hard to find and we had a lot of fun rounding them all up for you. We hope you enjoy the WOXY Holiday Mixer, and all of us at WOXY.com wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
