Home Free – Full of Cheer

Here is a wonderful group, Home Free, singing “Angels We Have Heard On High” from their new album “Full of Cheer.” I bought and added this album to the acapella Christmas station.

You can buy this album at Amazon.

10 Years Old!

Last week was the tenth anniversary of the first broadcast of Christmas Music 24/7. We’ve had millions of listeners, and played thousands of songs. We now have nine different Christmas stations, and a handful of non-holiday stations. Thanks for making this a joy to do, even when life has been tough. I hope to be here doing this in 2024!

Silent Night is the Favorite Christmas Song of 2013

And after a busy two weeks of voting by our listeners, we have our winner! Taking 57% of the final vote, Silent Night was declared to be the 2013 Christmas Song of the Year. A huge thank you to everyone who voted.

The two individual recordings that were favorited the most were by Mannheim Steamroller
and the Mormom Tabernacle Choir.

Now that I’ve done this once, next year we’ll be able to actually work down to which exact version of a song is our listener’s favorite. So if you’re an artist, or just a fan of a specific version of a Christmas song, let me know and I’ll start figuring out a way to mke this work in 2014.
