a very special Thursday Morning Mix
with Scott Foley

Lovin' me some holiday airtime today! I'm the odd bird who enjoys Christmas music, and haven't been able to play enough for my tastes this year, owing to my decision to air my '08 favorites shows during the past two weeks.

This morning's program was made especially worthy with the addition of my three children (Madeleine, Logan and Gabe) joining me in the studio. Notice I didn't say "easier", just more special ... All three kids are growing into their respective musical passions, and shared a holiday song of their choice with Christmas Morning Mix listeners.

While I've enjoyed the past three weeks, I'm certainly looking forward to next week's return to "plain old music". I've already got discs lined up from Graham Lindsay, Eleni Mandell, Ben Kweller, and others. In the meantime, onward:

* Boxmasters, "My Dreams Of Christmas" Christmas Cheer
* Be Good Tanyas, "Rudy" Winter's Night
* Gretchen Peters, "Songs For a Winter's Night" Northern Lights
* Old 97s, "Here It Is Christmas Time" internet single
