Mooseyard Xmas

Mixed 17 December 2008 by sneJ

Here's a bunch of our favorite Christmas music, all packaged up for you to download & play. There's some crooning, of course (gotta have Nat singing “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire...”) but also fun pre-war novelty songs, big-band jazz, and killer surf instrumentals.
