MTP: Episode 75 (Holiday Edition #5)


Hello once again everyone. Can you believe it’s almost Christmastime? I hope you’ve all been good little boys and girls this year, or else Santa might stick you with a lump of (greenhouse gas producing) coal. Grinchy!!

Not to worry, the Marking Time Podcast Episode 75 has all the real, grown-up holiday music you’ll need this Yuletide, all gift-wrapped for you to open with merely the click of a (non-stirring) mouse. As with the previous four versions of Christmas past, this fifth edition of our festive program features a full two hours of uninterrupted songs of the season, custom made for jolly times around the tree, under the mistletoe or just hanging out by the punchbowl.

So grab those ugly sweaters, slippers and adult beverages and get set for a true Christmas treat. And remember to share this bit of joy with your friends via your favourite social media outlet (like Twitter). Thanks so much and have a fantastic holiday season! Ho ho ho!!
