A Merry Feast

This weekend on The Appetizer we’ll kick off our celebration of the Christmas season with a mix of holiday music and other great flavors of music that I’ve been a big fan of for some time. Christmas music falls into two main categories: traditional and pop. Traditional Christmas songs are the tunes that are mostly religious in nature, as well as a few songs that have been sung over the ages that carry the religious end of the season in it’s lyrics. Pop Christmas as old and new songs celebrating the season, winter, family, presents, Santa, etc. We’ll present a great spread of music in mostly the Pop Christmas end this weekend and next, concluding on Christmas Day with a special presentation of The Appetizer Christmas, featuring new interpretations of more traditional Christmas songs.

I’m a big fan of cover songs, as you know. And Christmas music for the most part is just that, covers of the same music. What’s so interesting about that fact in particular is that every artist, good or bad, that does their rendition of Christmas music brings their own interpretation of the song to the table. No two versions of the same song are exactly alike. I find that intriguing.

And then there’s original Christmas songs, music written for the Christmas season that are usually only included in an artist’s Christmas album. Music that fit into that category will be heard this weekend from The Rocketboys, A Fine Frenzy, Leona Naess and more. If you’d like a complete playlist, send an email to appetizerradio@hotmail.com. Enjoy!
