It's Christmas here at Suave HQ which means it is time for another Suave office Christmas party. Joining me once again is DJ Ken.

Christmas in 2020 is like none other before it. This year it's all about remembering the before, getting through the the during, and hoping for the after. Feel good music is the perfect present for your ears. DJ Ken joins me in mixing before, during and after songs for your seasonal survival. Here's to next year! Listen now!
Modcast #440: Christmas Potluck Party (2019)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and you know what that means. Time for another modcast office Christmas party. At past parties DJ Ken and I have thrown up on Christmas, been blown away by Christmas, blown off Christmas, but this year we're blowing up Christmas. Listen Now!

Modcast #399: Mr. Suave's Mod Tiki Christmast Extravaganza 2017
Another year, another Christmas modcast. The good tidings here are that at least this year we have a Christmas modcast! That's right I'm back with DJ Ken to bring you the yule you'll wish you could forget. It's tikirific! Listen now!

Modcast #398: Have Yourself A Mary Little Christmas

Mr. Suave's 3rd Annual Christmas Modcast Extravaganza (2011)
Well, it is Christmas time even if it doesn't really seem like it around Suave HQ. Usually I'm fully into the Christmas spirit by this time of the season, but this year just hasn't done it for me. As will be evidenced by the somewhat ho-ho-humbug attitude of this year's annual Christmas modcast extravaganza. Back to share his despair is Ken from The Shingles. Sadly the show was lost in the great hard drive crash in the winter of 2012.
In breaking news the missing show has been found! Listen now.

Modcast #219: Power Chords, Harmonies and Mistleto
I was lucky enough to have a chance to interview my old friend Dean Hoth, who is the lead singer of power pop trio The Eddies. We talked not just about what the band is up to, but more importantly to discuss a new Christmas compilation that is the perfect gift for any and all power pop loving mods out there. Powerchords, Harmonies and Mistletoe. Not a full Christmas show, but in light of the loss of 2011's show, this will have to do. Listen now

Mr. Suave's 2nd Annual Swingin' Christmas Extravaganza
Merry Christmas kids. As always, I am joined by Ken from The Shingles for this year's big Christmas show, and it is big. We've got some nice new seasonal sounds from Pink Martini as well as classics from Sinatra and some cool stuff from Bob Francis, Jaymz Bee and more. Make sure your turkey is stuffed, your tree is trimmed, and your glass is full of Christmas cheer when you settle down to listen to this one. Listen now

A Christmas bonus! These are not your grandfather's Christmas songs, from Jimmy Severe and His Blue Christmas Boys to The Eels and The Cuban Mistletoe Crisis this hodgepodge of slightly different but cool yule sounds. Listen now

Modcast #150: Mr. Suave's 2009 Mod Christmas Extravaganza (AKA First Annual Swingin' Christmas Extravagana, Modcast Christmas Office Party)
No matter what the neighbors think, this is one cool and smooth modcast. I've enlisted Ken from The Shingles to join me in delivering a Christmas dozen -- that's 14 great songs. This is one holiday modcast that will go down in the history books with some great stuff from Miles Davis to The Very Foundation, from Farrah to Girl Trouble. It's all good, and it's all merry, and you're going to love it. Listen now

Mr. Suave's 2008 Christmas Modcast
