Merry Christmas! My present to you is two hours of global, non-annoying tunes about the winter solstice, Christmas, and winter in general. And don’t worry about getting me anything; your gift is that you listen to Spin The Globe, love global music, and (perhaps?) are a listener-member of KAOS Community Radio. I’m away next week and Sy (of KAOS’s Junglee Hour) will be filling in. I’ll be back with you on January 8 for my first broadcast of the new year. So also, Happy New Year!
Listen to past episodes of Spin The Globe free at Mixcloud.
