Good Listening: Cockburn Christmas Volume Two

Only a few more shopping days left until the big day.  Are you ready?  Ready or not, be sure to take some time to savor a bit of great Christmas music courtesy of the Stereo Dictator and ATV.

Today’s offering is a present from December 20, 1992 featuring Bruce Cockburn and that irrepressible icon of holiday joy and glee (who also happens to be one of the gods of rock and roll), Lou Reed performing his seasonal gem, “Xmas in February.”

Another installment of the annual Columbia Records Radio Hour, this one is the big money bonus round of radio shows. Enjoy the talents of Rosanne Cash on “From the Ashes” as well as Rob Wasserman, who plays on all tunes including a wickedly jolly version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”

It’s a holiday trip back to the 90s that is well worth the 51 minute investment. And it beats standing in line at the mall.

    Epic posts! As I mentioned to Matt on Twitter, the ’94 Christmas with Cockburn show is one of my holiday staples. I taped it off the radio back then, the same year I discovered Mr. Cockburn’s genius. Thanks for these, I’ve always wanted to track down these earlier Columbia Radio Hours.
