Captain Kirk Does Rudolph

There are not many days like this in the course of a Christmas season. Today William Shatner – forever, in the eyes of most, Captain James T. Kirk — boldly went where many have gone before. And he did it his way. Watch this, if you dare: Now, before you Christmas purists out there go completely nutz lets just take a moment to reflect on some things. First of all, …

Best of New Christmas Music from Paul Cardall

We have no problem admitting that we are big Paul Cardall fans. He’s a local guy. He has been producing great Christmas stuff for years. He has an inspiring story, incredible talent, a creative mind, and a giving heart. Does all that translate to great Christmas music? Take a listen to this song — hundreds of years old — richly orchestrated in a new way. The Paul Cardall way. (Yeah, …

Best New Christmas Music from The Cooter Boys

I’m sitting here very early in the morning of Black Friday doing what I’m always doing the day after Thanksgiving: working on Christmas. In those dark, still, productive moments a notification pops up telling me I’ve got mail. Who could that be at 1:30am? Well, it’s The Cooter Boys and they have a new song the email tells me. I’m not gonna lie. What kind of music can a group …

Best New Christmas Music from Caleb and Kelsey

Today is the single biggest selling day for Christmas trees of the entire year. Thanksgiving weekend is filled with a great many traditions that get a lot of notice: the turkey, football and Black Friday just being the most talked about. But aside from eating turkey there is no bigger tradition than getting the family Christmas tree. For some that means pulling it out of a box that was stored …

Best of New Christmas Music 2018

We have to smile each year as we count the many radio stations claiming to be the first who switch to all Christmas music. Or for those stations who pop up on cable, satellite, and associated websites claiming to be the end-all-be-all of Christmas music. We laugh because since our first radio stream launched in 2006 we have never stopped the music. On our sites, our podcasts and our radio …

Lessons of Christmas Love

Earlier this year we celebrated the 200th anniversary of Silent Night. With little fanfare and quiet storytelling yet another version of Silent Night is given to us via this touching new video: The Tabernacle Choir has made it something of a tradition to release a video story behind a classicly arranged hymn of Christmas. This version of Silent Night is no different. The almost eight-minute video tells the story of …

Scary and Merry from Pentatonix

Scary and merry is the theme of the first single to drop from the newest Christmas album coming out soon from Pentatonix. “Making Christmas” is a brilliant theme from the now classic film Nightmare Before Christmas. Coincidentally, that movie celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and the song, of course, is a delightful and frightful mix of both Halloween and Christmas. Watch: Pentatonix, who has made the hottest selling albums …

We Three Kings

We Three Kings purports to tell the story of the Magi — perhaps one of the least understood elements of the Nativity Story. While scripture is short on detail of exactly who the Magi were that does not mean the imagination does not run wild and creative when we celebrate their role in Christmas. In this fun video the “three kings” take over the organ…and put on quite a show: …

The Story of Porky Pig, Blue Christmas and a Dude Named Seymour Swine

For many years we have been asked for the back story of Porky Pig’s Blue Christmas. In case you haven’t seen this masterpiece, here it is: Editor’s Disclaimer: It seems that no matter what we post we receive contrary opinions and plenty of emails of complaint about the politically correct this or that of Christmas. Porky Pig doing Blue Christmas is going to unleash those demons in force. For the …
