So what kind of Christmas platter do I have in store for this holiday?
If you’ve ever heard The Appetizer during the Christmas holidays, you know where I stand on the celebration of the day itself.
If you haven’t, let this blog give you a little insight into what’s in store on the presentation Saturday on KVLU and KACU.
I’m a fan of traditional Christmas music that’s done in a unique way. At times, that may mean reinterpreted in a way not done before or very often. It may mean that the song is performed in a traditional way with a more modern sound. But for Christmas day itself, I want to celebrate the birth of Jesus with more traditional Christmas music.
I have Sufjan Stevens on the menu with a beautiful rendition of O Holy Night. Also, The Barlow Girls with O Come O Come Emmanuelle, as well as a unique and inspired rendition of Do You Hear What I Hear that infuses a rock song from the Who into the tune. It’s brilliant and I look forward to you hearing it for yourself.
I don’t want to give anything else away, so you’ll just have to hear it for yourself.
The Appetizer Christmas 2010 will air Saturday at 3PM on KVLU-1 in Beaumont (or listen to them live online) and Saturday at 9PM on KACU in Abilene (or listen anywhere online at 9PM on www.kacu.org).
