Christmas time again

It's that time again. That time when you're driven out of your mind by mindless Christmas music. This week I play music that will help keep your sanity.aimee mann, michael penn

Aimee Mann and Michael Penn (her husband and brother of Sean, both left) start the show off with a dreary reminder that "Christmas time" returns again. But the tone quickly shifts with the humor and good spirits of Brave Combo, Mel Blanc, and Danny Elfman.

Then: artists I can almost guaranty you've never heard before, but absolutely need to hear: La Botinne Souriante (Quebec's answer to...well, what was the question), and the song "God rest ye merry gentlemen" performed back to back by Sarah McLachlin & Barenaked Ladies and then Chick Corea's Elektric Band.
