Friday Drive
Friday December 25th, 2020 with Trevor Walker
"Friday Drive X-mas Mixtape"

It's not very often the show falls on Christmas and normally I tend to shy away from holiday themed music but this year while preparing the show it felt like I was being personally "Scrooged". I've tended to collect the odd holiday themed music that moves me over the years and I don't mind the odd classic reimagined. Going through the music, song after song I found my spirits lifting. The music was really hitting me and all the signs pointed to a Christmas themed show. I know there are a lot of you that may recoil and humbug a show like today's and I don't blame you, this show may not be for you... I've tried to put together music that made me feel something and has some depth, musically, spiritually, with a positive message, a groove or just plain fun. I hope you enjoy the selections. A "Friday Drive" like this may never happen again. Happy listening and best of the season to you and yours!

Your opening sentiments on Christmas music is very intune with how I feel of what we have mostly come to know as Christmas Classics, but Trevor, man, you nailed it with this list. Perfect. Love that you threw in the Charlie Brown at the end, as that was pretty much the only one I could stand as a kid. Haha. Cheers, Trevor!
