Join DJ Swill and I for an hour-long, Grumpy Punk exploration of Christmas Music for people who don’t like Christmas Music.  We tag team through a number of X-Mas oddities, and talk about our interests as music fans, in this very special Grumpy Punk broadcast.

Aside from Halloween, there are very few holidays that we here at Blasphuphmus Radio celebrate.  However, it is difficult to ignore the holiday season when the rest of the world is taken in its grip for the majority of the winter months.  Sooner or later, the influence of these holidays reaches even us.  Fortunately, DJ Swill and I are on the same page, and we decide to celebrate Christmas the Grumpy Way.

Below you will find a short video, shot by Wendy, of us in action, so you can get a visual of what this is all about.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: Christmas Music For People Who Don’t Like Christmas Music.  Enjoy!

In the 13 years we’ve been on the air, try as we might, a handful of holiday programs have made it into our archives that offer holiday themes and content to our fair listeners.  Given that the holiday season is upon us, is seemed only fitting to go through the vaults and dig out these rare gems.

For today’s show, I decided to delve into the archives again and pull out some selections from my favorite Holiday shows of the past. I’m not a big Christmas person (for the most part), and when I do get into Seasonal Music, it’s generally not what you would hear in the Mall. So consider this a snapshot of what I like to bump this time of year.

If nothing else, you should really listen to my rendition of The Cremation Of Sam McGee from 2006, near the end of the show.

Next week: tune in for the return of The Grumpy Punk, with a special co-host, who will be helping me pick the tunes for that hour. Should be pretty epic.

See ya in seven.
