Saturday December 24, 2005 - Christmas Eve Special

This week's themes were a combination of Christmas / Kwanzaa / Solstice / Hannukah songs and some of my favourite CDs of 2005 (the New Year's Eve special will be a much more comprehensive look back at the year's best - from my own humble perspective).
