MTP: Episode 60 (Holiday Edition #4)

MTP-60Hello everyone and happy holidays! It’s that time of year again, where the days are short but filled with joy and wonder. A time where family and friends come together to share talents and treasures in a spirit of love and peace.

To help celebrate, we give you the Marking Time Podcast Episode 60, a choice 2-hour blend of classic and contemporary Yuletide favourites to charm young and old alike. This year, we’re pleased to feature a great array of Canadian artists, including Bruce Cockburn, David Myles, the once, Good Lovelies, Ron Sexsmith and Diana Krall. Plus there’s a whole host of music from other nice non-Canadian folks too!

So form a festive conga line and get in the spirit! From the MTP to you, a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
