December 18 (806) Christmas Moon

moon_snow

Play this show

And that old Christmas moon
Shining softly on snow so white
As he brightens a special night
That old Christmas moon

Soft snow is silvery white
With moon glow shining so bright
It lights up this glorious night
It’s that old Christmas moon

            Leon Redbone

Just a quick reminder that GRR will be back this afternoon with a set of holiday tunes that ranges from contemplative to raucous, joyful to moody, sacred to secular, nice to naughty and some that are harder to classify.  Check us out to hear Leon Redbone, Nick Lowe, Mindy Smith, The Be Good Tanyas, The Punch Brothers, Dawes, Cantus, the Roches, Billie Holiday, Tom Waits, Paul Simon and others.

I hope you can listen this afternoon as you take care of business, or check it out later on the blog.

And I wish you the best for the coming days and in the new year – Happy Holidays from Great River Radio!

Dec. 22 – 4th Annual Holiday Music Show

Winter’s longest night arrived with little fanfare yesterday. And for the next three months, those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere will plod on through the cold and frequent snow reminding ourselves that spring is just a few short months ahead. It is the season waiting. Waiting for gifts. Waiting for spiritual nourishment. Waiting for family or friends. Waiting for change. Waiting for the unknown.

As we have for the last three years, Great River Radio will bring you the songs of the season this afternoon in our much-anticipated holiday music show. You’ll hear beautiful songs from Alison Moyet, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Over The Rhine, Mike Doughty, Mark Mothersbaugh, Tony Bennett, Low, Feist, Bob & Hilary James, Calexico, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and many more. We’ve spent weeks getting the song selection just right … and we know you’ll enjoy our thoughtful selections.

It’s certainly a busy season, but hopefully you’ll have some time to sit back, relax and enjoy this mix of some of our favorite holiday songs. Tune in live from 4-6 p.m. today, or listen to the show later via our archive here at the Great River Radio site. We’ve had many listeners tell us that they enjoy listening to holiday show while wrapping last-minute presents … or when they finally get a chance to settle down with a favorite book in front of a fire. Whatever the time or reason, please join us as we experience the joy of the season through music.

Great River Radio will be taking our usually holiday break during the next couple of weeks, but we won’t be sitting idle. As many of you know, we’re putting together the most expansive and ambitious Great River Radio show ever – “A Decade of Influence.” We’ve been looking back at old playlists, exchanging ideas and receiving recommendations from you to determine the most influential music of the “Aughts.” There’s still plenty of time to get your selections in before the show. Just visit our “Decade of Influence.”

Catch us live today, Dec. 22 at 4-6 p.m. (CST) via the KUST stream
iChat or AIM in the studio: kustradio

Thank you for your participation and listenership all year long. We are grateful to be part of this growing music community. Peace and love to all of you and your loved ones during this time of great anticipation.

Merry Christmas and a very healthy and happy 2010.

Brian/Dan
