X96’s Alt-Mas Playlist

It has begun…

Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Harry Connick Jr. and Mo-Tab  all crooning away in every decorated shed you set your Doc Martens into. If there’s snow on the ground, it’s a bit tolerable. When the weather is more like San Diego than Salt Lake, it’s an irritation, but since the snow is flying, it’s probably safe to post this blog. It’s finally December. I’ve already attended my first bad sweater party, so here are a slew of sled songs landing far off the traditional playlist.
