Fresh Holiday Playlists for the Road (or the House)

Holiday Playlist

Holiday PlaylistIn case you just can’t get enough.

Gems include artists you might expect (Paul McCartney, Jimmy Durante, Alvin & the Chipmunks and John Denver) to some great surprises (My Chemical Romance, Smashing Pumpkins, Joey Ramone, She & Him).
