Friday Drive
Friday December 24th, 2021 with Trevor Walker
"Friday Drive X-mas Mixtape" [rebroadcast from 12-25-20]

Decided to give myself a little break for this year's Christmas eve and rebroadcast last year's "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 unless it's a replay. Thank you for taking the time. Happy listening and best of the season to you and yours! [extra curriculars] I will be streaming occasionally on my Thursdays + Saturdays | 20h EST hopefully with some extra unscheduled pop ups.
