Episode 22: Snow Flakes

Holidays are difficult, as they seem to magnify everything that’s right or wrong about our lives.  I’ve, many times, been left scratching my head on Christmas Eve, wondering why things aren’t how they should be.

In light of that, I wanted to make a mix that would be both joyous and reflective.  And in both cases, I think it must be reverent.  I hope you like it.

  1. “Early on One Christmas Morn” – Bruce Cockburn (Christmas/Sony/1993)
  2. “Still, Still, Still” – The Billions (Quiet as It’s Kept/independent/2000)
  3. “Snow Flakes” – The Ventures (The Ventures’ Christmas Album/Dolton/1965)
  4. “Silent Night/Lord Can You Hear Me” – The Flaming Lips (Christmas on Mars/Warner Brothers/2008)
  5. “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem” – Julian Koster (The Singing Saw at Christmastime/Merge/2008)
  6. “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)” – George Harrison (Living in the Material World/Capitol/1973)

Radio Free Raytown – Episdode #22 (12/18/09)

    Wow, I didn’t know Baptists weren’t supposed to like Harrison.

    Merry Christmas to you (and Kate!) too! Thanks for doing these shows.

      Yeah, it’s part of that thing a lot of fundamentalists still have about hippies, far out religions and rock and roll. We got married in 2003, but it felt like 1965. (The pastor also objected to a song by a christian band for being too sexual. Go figure.)

    Thanks for the mix!
    You might enjoy ‘Silent Night’ played on a musical saw (filmed yesterday in the NYC subway):

    The musician is Natalia ‘Saw Lady’ Paruz – http://www.SawLady.com

    Merry Christmas,
