Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

One of our most popular episodes each year, the 2013 Christmas edition of Full-Time Blues Radio keeps the tradition alive with some amazing new & independent Blues music all fitting the holiday theme. There is a fantastic selection of original Christmas songs, alongside new versions of some of the classics! Pour some egg nog, pitch another log on the fireplace, and turn up this fantastic selection of tunes.

Since none of these songs have been played on the program before, I decided to give “Johnny’s Mailbox” the week off. Instead, we paid special tribute to Chick Willis. “The Stoop Down Man” passed away December 7, 2013 after a decades long career. The song, “Chick 4 Christmas,” is a 2012 medley of several Chick Willis Christmas tunes that appear on the Ichiban Records compilation Ichiban Blues At Christmas Vol. 2.

I hope you have enjoyed this year of Full-Time Blues Radio programs. It has been our most successful year, to date; and that is solely because of the folks listening and interacting with the program through social media. Word of mouth is the greatest advertising, and each time you share the show, it means more to me than you can imagine. I pray you have a blessed Christmas, happy holidays, and an amazing new year. This will be our last episode for 2013, so I look forward to meeting you right back here in 2014. Thanks, and God Bless.

    • Episodes are not available for download. That’s because this show is designed to support the independent artist by creating new fans for the bands we play. I encourage you to purchase your favorite music from the show, because it supports the musicians who need it the most: independent, do-it-yourself artists. I truly appreciate you listening and I hope you’ll tune in again. – JFT
