Over the holidays, most sensible UMFM hosts stay home or pre-record their shows, but I've never been accused of being sensible so I not only come in to do my show but usually stretch it out a little longer as well. In the past, I've done 5 or 6 hours, but this year I noticed something unusual: a day where nobody had signed up to come in or pre-record. That got the wheels turning and a ridiculous plan was in motion. What if I came in and did an ENTIRE day? We're allowed to broadcast live from 11 am to 11 pm, so I asked if there was a chance that I could take it on, and they went for it. Enter: The Epic Mudge Marathon, where I got to play all kinds of stuff that I don't normally play, including some forgotten gems and a whole pile of weird stuff that I couldn't get away with otherwise.
Even though most of us are pretty sick of Christmas music by now, there are some songs that you just need to hear every year, and we're here to present the almost ultimate list of essential Christmas songs, as well as some great ones that you probably won't hear anywhere else. Good music makes Christmas much more bearable, so hopefully, these songs will make your days a little more merry and bright!
It must be getting painfully close to the holidays, because we find ourselves seeing double, triple, and even quadruple on today's show, as we profile some great artists, as well as playing some great German requests, some new music and announcements, and much more!
It’s December once again, and with some great music, we’ll surely make it through, so we kicked off with some survival-empowering songs, moseyed into some great new music, some German requests, some of the very best of 2018, and looked at a few of our favourite CFMA winners and nominees!
