It's one of many traditions around here at Mushroom FM: Bruce Toews and his Christmas Novelty Special.

What kind of awful things have happened to Santa as he's been trying to make his rounds? What do Yogi Yorgessen, Tom Lehrer, Ray Stevens, and Cledus T. Judd have to say on the subject of the season? All these questions and many more will be dealt with, if not actually answered, on this year's Christmas special.

Yes, it's finally come round at last, that season of holly, ivy, mistletoe, merriment, and music of course! So this week, we've got Christmas tunes gallore on Come by the Hills. We've got salutes to some of my favourite folkish festive albums and artists, some Christmas comedy, and our annual reading of "A Child's Christmas in Wales" by Dylan Thomas.

Our Christmas Cast-offs show plays songs that didn't get enough votes to make the top 100

Last Sunday, we played the top 100 holiday songs as voted for by the Mushroom Crowd. But listeners voted for 312 songs in total.

As has become our tradition over the last few years, join me, Jonathan Mosen, as we play four hours of Christmas cast-offs, a few of the 212 songs that people voted for, but not in large enough numbers to make the main chart.

It first airs in the Mosen Explosion replay slot, Tuesday at 5 AM Eastern time, 10 AM in the UK. If that’s stupid o’clock for you, we’ll play it again on Wednesday afternoon between 4 and 8 PM Eastern time.
