Winter Songs
Merry Christmas Eve Eve!

Seeing as it's the night before Christmas Eve I'm going with a Christmas theme for this show. I've got a bunch more for you from the lovely Hotel Cafe complilation CD Winter Songs, featuring many of the talented ladies who have graced their stage in the past year. Plus other seasonal songs from traditional (like Priscilla Ahn singing Silent Night) to quirky (Dar William's Christians and the Pagans) - all sung by some of my favorite artists that I've played on the show this year.

Tune in every Tuesday from 9-10am for great music by female singer-songwriters!
