Radio address for Dec 12, 2008, in which ever-rarer and older Christmas songs are sampled like fine cheeses. To find copies of the songs so liberally cited in this address, look up the Chieftans (Bells of Dublin), Steeleye Span, The Christmas Revels, Medieval Baebes, Barry & Beth Hall, and John Roberts, Tony Barrand, Fred Breunig & Steve Woodruff.
Mention is made of Jason Kottke and Khoi Vinh each noting Brian Eno’s quote about the power of group singing.
