The KSHE Klassics Program, Christmas Day, 2016

Quotation du jour ~ Prince:  Music is spirit, it’s therapy. It makes me feel a certain way, and if played with conviction and soul, the same thing occurs in other people.

Sitting here battling a debilitating case of alcohol poisoning with my usual Xmas Day remedy: rum and egg nog. Insanity doesn't run in my family, as far as i know, but i'm working on it....

I discovered KSHE about four years and so of course this is the first time i've listened to the Klassics show on a Christmas morning, but i wasn't really surprised that there was no seasonal music included. As Uman said when the show began, some people aren't religious, many people aren't Christian, so it's business as usual. I'm glad i was able to listen to it at all, considering the technology nightmare before Christmas i've just come through (and which i intend to blog about later). Here's the playlist:
