Friends & Neighbors 12/17/08

Eclectic as always, there are familiar songs and things few of you have heard before
Here are a few albums we select from during this season of the Turning of the Year:

It's Christmas, Man by Brave Combo (on Rounder)
tunes you know with rhythms Miss Sprague never taught the school chorus

To Shorten the Winter: An Irish Christmas with Tommy Sands (on Green Linnet)
http://www.tommysands.com/

Must Be Santa (on Rounder)
From Riders in the Sky's nostalgic "Christmas at the Triple X Ranch" to Bahamian Joseph Spence's startling version of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town,"
