In 2002, I knocked together a Christmas mix on a whim and sent CD copies to a couple dozen friends and family members. When the mix started bouncing around the Internet and got played on the Back to the Basics radio show in Hamburg, Germany, I realized I was on to something. Merry Mixmas has since become a holiday tradition for people all over the world. Each edition is a continuous mix of Christmas music spanning multiple musical genres and multiple decades. They’re all free for the downloading, so take as many as you want. Thanks to everyone who listens, and special thanks to those who have sent little notes through email or Facebook about Mixmas being part of their family celebration. I appreciate it more than you know. And now, on to the download links …

Last night Mary and I had the pleasure of attending a concert put on by Herb Alpert & Lani Hall. At 82 & 71 respectively, they are freakin’ amazing. Obviously I don’t have any video from the event but they did play along to these two videos projected onto a screen on the stage. Both are worth the watch even if you aren’t a fan.
