Modcast #254: Mods' Christmas Faves

Merry Grimble, ho ho ho and all that stuff. This is the time of year that all over the planet people are striving to be of good cheer. And the mods on the internet are no different. I have invited a bunch of mod bloggers, mod podcasters, mod friendly bands to tell us about their favorite Christmas song. You'll hear from guests The Bang with a special brand new acoustic Christmas track; Warren Peace of the We Are The Mods podcast; Jonny from mod band The Ace; Wayne from The Ice Cream Man Power Pop and More blog; cocktail diva Mary Queen of Cosmos; Dean from the Mod Soul Review Podcast and more. Oh yeah, and a few tracks of my own that I think are right nice around this time of year.

Mark you calendars folks because next week is the 4th Annual Suave Headquarters Office Christmas Party, when my co-host will be none other than Ken from The Shingles. See you then for more holiday shenanigans, Christmas music and mayhem all courtesy of the rat bastard who put so little punch in the office rum bowl.
