Soul Noel

This *might* be my last Christmas mix of the season, as I’ve really got to start doing all of those non-music-related Christmas preparations like buying and wrapping gifts, making and eating food, and most importantly spending time with the people I love. But we’ll see. It’s just as likely that this won’t be the last.

I definitely do have a New Year’s Eve mix on deck and I’m excited to tell you all that I collaborated with a friend of mine for a special Christmas edition of IndieCan Radio, and you can hear it on Tuesday!

In any case, I think this is a good one. There are so many wonderful, soulful Christmas tunes that I had an especially hard time whittling down the playlist, so I’m sure there will be a sequel one of these years. This one is great for parties, so get your dancing shoes on. Have a merry, soulful Christmas!
