SPECIAL "XMAS MUSIC" EPISODE GUEST-HOSTED BY NEIL HOHMANN!

Also On This Episode

This episode was guest-hosted (for the second time!) by the incomparable Neil Hohmann of Ritmo Latino fame. Honestly, I can't say I'd have chosen many of these songs, but that's the whole point of a guest-hosted episode, right?! I hadn't come up with much in the way of good Christmas music this year, so for the annual Xmas music episode I asked if Neil would be willing to fill in. He did so in record time, no doubt a testament to his podcasting professionalism!
