XHM #291 - "Bubblegum Beethoven" (2015 December 14)

7:00pm - 9:04pm

Now time for a personal favourite: Vince Guaraldi and his music from not just A Charlie Brown Christmas, celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, but other Peanuts media, including other TV specials and film. Plenty of melodic jazz for the young at heart, whether you were a Snoopy fan or not. There are other Christmas songs to counterprogram against your usual mainstream selection.

"Who cares about money?!? This is ART, you blockhead! This is great music I'm playing, and playing great music is an art! Do you hear me? An art! ART! ART! ART! ART! ART!" --Schroeder
