A 'Boney M' Anti-dote
Last year, however I discovered a musical anti-dote. The Podsafe Christmas podcast. It's back again this year. Hosted by one of the podcasting pioneers Ed Roberts, Podsafe Christmas is a daily 15-2omin music show packed full of new original and public domain Christmas songs. Do yourself a favour and visit podsafechristmas.com and check out the shows that have already being posted, the daily shows started on the 23rd November. There are already some classics that have been included like Jill Parr's 'Do you hear what I here'[Episode 11] , Twisted Sister's 'O Come All Ye Faithful'[Episode 7], The Candy Butcher's 'Give me a second chance for Christmas' and Slau's charity song 'If everyday were Christmas'
You can listen to the shows at the site, but there are also various methods you can use to subscribe and get all the future shows downloaded onto your pc, you can even get it mailed to you.
If you really enjoy this type of thing go and visit LifeSpring's podcast Advent calendar. Another daily podcast where the hosts talk around Christmas traditions around the world and their origins and meanings.
