It’s lovely weather for a playlist together with you! Image: Reader’s Digest

Ho, ho, holy moly… we’ve got a lot of Christmas songs this year!

Tune in every Friday through Christmas Eve for start-to-finish holiday tunes from north of the border, featuring a super fun mix of Christmas classics and original Christmas tunes. From “Little Drummer Boy” to “Santa Claus Likes Rich Kids Better”, “Partying With Santa” to “Little Saint Nick”, we’ve got all the music you’ll need to get in the spirit of the season—without any of those stale songs you hear overplayed on the rest of the radio dial every December.
