On Wednesday’s Crosscurrents, 8 to 10 am on December 11, John Gaguine will be playing two hours of traditional Christmas music. Hear great choral ensembles like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Robert Shaw Chorale, and singers like Joan Baez and the Chenille Sisters. No Santa or Rudolph or Jingle Bells. Those will come next week, on the 18th, when Mike Godkin will be in again.
