Weekend Audition: A Bluegrass 'Night Before Christmas' and a charmer from SHEL

Screen capture from 'The Night Before Christmas'

Sharing two seasonal treasures-- and not your grandfather's carols!

Timothy P Irvin and the Rocky Mountain Stocking Stuffers are eleven of some of the finest pickers of the front Range! They perform "The Night Before Christmas" to the traditional bluegrass tune "Rank Stranger" -- with a twist: they perform it in seven movements of different styles of Bluegrass!  I love this video!

"The Night Before Christmas"

SHEL are four incredibly creative and talented sisters from Ft. Collins, Colorado and soon... the world! Dreams do come true with their heartwarming and magical rendition of "Toyland". I love this video, too!


Have a magical Christmas,


- Wendy

Though the majority of my radio experience has been in the commercial sector (from Colorado to Utah to Alaska), my radio was always tuned to the public station... I am an NPR junkie. I was blessed to work with some truly amazing and creative people in radio since my first professional job in the industry during my freshman year in college. That blessing has continued by being part of the family of one of the most incredible radio stations (and staff) in the country - KUNC.
