WLOY’s 12 Days Of Christmas Music

December 22nd, 2018 by Erin McAvoy

Five more days people!  Here’s day nine of WLOY’S 12 Days of Christmas Music:

John Devecka, Operations Manager

“I’m torn because it depends on the mood, but all of these are necessary for me:

Merry Christmas Baby – Otis Redding (the man could sing a Chinese menu and make it kill

Father Christmas – The Kinks (snarky working-class rock classic)

Christmas in Hollis – Run-DMC (If you don’t enjoy this, re-evaluate everything)

I also just realized they came out in 1967, 1977, 1987… now I have to find a decent 1997 release to expand my horizons

They should all be played by everyone”
