There's no one quite like Howard Livingston and his Mile Marker 24 Band to get our show started!  This great Christmas tune can be found on his Tunes in a Tropical Key CD.

"Oh Holy Night" is a holiday standard that Gary Morris knocks out of the park!  Check out his Every Christmas album for many, many more awesome covers of Christmas songs.

We've got The Boss coming your way this holiday season.  We hope you enjoy his take on "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town"!



You can't have a holiday Trop Rock show without our friend Brent Burns!  "12 Days of Snowbird Christmas" is something special we found on his excellent Christmas Vacation CD.

There's no one like Asleep at the Wheel!  Here is their "Santa Loves to Boogie" to put you in the holiday spirit.

Our holiday selection from the King of Trop Rock this year will be "A Sailor's Christmas".  Go look up his Christmas Island album if you like this song!



We're taking a quick trip to Redfish Island so we can hear Kelly McGuire's "Merry Christmas Island Style".

Vince Charles has an interesting take on "Little Drummer Boy" and we thought we'd share it.  Enjoy!

We couldn't have a holiday show without a little Robert Earl Keen!  Here is "Merry Christmas From the Family" from his No. 2 Live Dinner album.



Another Christmas standard we wanted to get in this week is Michael Martin Murphey's "Merry Texas Christmas You All".  We pulled it from his Cowboy Christmas album for those who want more.

You can't pass up a song called "Santa Claus Has Dreadlocks" - we don't care who you are!  This Eric Stone song is from the aptly named Great White Christmas CD.

Gene Mitchell has  thing or two to say about Christmas!  We hope you enjoy his "Christmas In the Islands" from his Christmas in Paradise album.

Closing out our show this week comes from the International Reggae All-Stars!  The name of the song says it all: "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"!

Happy Holidays everyone!
