Exploding Head Movies Episode December 20, 2010

XHM #47 - "MMXmas: Turkey and pistols carved out of wood" (2010 December 20)

7:30am - 9:03am

As 2010 draws to a close, it's time for the less-popular Yuletide songs. A profile on Christmas in prison, along with German new wave, Finnish carols, metal and newer songs. For those of you who can see it, tonight's solstice will be blessed by a blood red moon. A jolly red nose of a lunar eclipse for the holidays.

Except Vancouver -- we're overcast until May.
