In which Christmas Music Persists

Tree Tobacco?I just listened to three hours of the world's strangest Christmas Music. Also the least often played. Click here to hear the Christmas Music Show on WFMU's Fool's Paradise. (An archive is available anytime you want it - like next year.)

It must have included every version of "The Night Before Christmas" in beatnik jive ever made. "I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas" didn't make the cut.

As a counterweight to these radio rarities, here is a list of Christmas songs heard most often on the radio. (The article also includes the most heard non-Christmas tunes.)

And I promise to make an effort to stop writing about Christmas music.
