Your Daily Dose of Christmas

SiriusXM has some interesting temporary Holiday-oriented music channels right now, if you’re a subscriber…and what’s nice about these channels (I like the “classical” one, the “classics” one with songs from the 40s, 50s, and 60s, and the “Favorites” one which covers all the typical mainstream stuff) is that they don’t simply rely on the same small-ish playlist that seems to dominate most mainstream Christmas music selections you hear these days, whether on the Muzak someplace or on stations like Buffalo’s 102.5, which switches to an all-Christmas format in November.

Case in point: here is “Winter Wonderland” by Ray Charles! I know I’ve heard this before–it’s used in When Harry Met Sally, for instance–but I never hear this via “normal” channels for holiday music.
