A Rough Guide to Xmas.

The holiday season just feels a little hollow to me in absence of a catch-all concept gift to give everyone whom I can't actually afford to expend earnest thought upon. And so, as promised, I'd like to offer you a modest compilation (podcast? Is that what they call it?) of songs from my extensive personal holiday vault: Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado...
