Music Of The Season

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

The second of three programs of seasonal music, this program is primarily an assortment of secular songs associated with the holidays, including parodies and a more serious set of songs aimed at remembering and aiding the less fortunate a love we should be practicing year ’round, not just at the holidays. Like last week’s program of sacred songs, this, too, is a holiday gift from the programmer: Lots of music, little talk!
