Art Radio Holiday Special



This Christmas mix of audio is a favorite for several reasons:

Highlights include a memorable rendition of Silent Night, played on that sadly underrated instrument, the marimba, a version of Let It Snow from the library of WFMU's The Professor, full of honesty and good cheer, a touching letter from a father to his 10-month-old son, describing his own first Christmas, and fully amplified kids ready for presents belting out their praises to Santa. It all ends with a letter from Francis Vaccaro thanking her parents for their efforts, with a musical background chosen by Francis herself.
