Blues Moon Christmas and Holiday Show... Dec. 14, 2010

Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah (although it is over now), Happy Kwanzaa, Mele Kalikimaka (sp?)... and so forth... festive tidings and welcome to the Blues Moon Radio Roots, Swing and Blues Music Holiday Extravaganza!

We'll be on from 6-9 p.m. tonight, so grab a cup of hot chocolate or grog, your sweetheart or dog, and decorate the house while dancing in your socks on bare floors (but wear thick socks, baby, 'cause it's COLD outside - and sometimes INside, too!).
