A YORK radio station has teamed up with a popular city food company for a brand new project in the station’s new studio.

YO1 Radio’s town center station, which is located in Goodramgate, was the original location of The York Roast Co, which now has stores in the adjacent Low Petergate and Stonegate – as well as other locations. from the country.

In recent times the property has been used as a traditional barber shop, but now, under a new partnership agreement, part of the premises has been converted to provide a downtown studio for YO1 Radio, the rest of the property to revert to being a takeout or dinner and a delivery hub for The York Roast Co related to the core business.

Wayne Chadwick, Managing Director of The York Roast Company and YO1 Radio, said: “There have been tough times lately for all local businesses, and we need to find new ways to make sure we can maintain the vitality of our city center.

“We have been looking for the best use of what was, in effect, empty property for some time.

“The York Roast Co was looking for better ways to handle the delivery side of the business – something that increased dramatically during the recent lockdown – and the radio station was looking for a high profile presence in the city.

“We think we’ve found the perfect solution for both.”

Wayne took over management of the radio station with Dave Parker in March – and the new studio base is part of a substantial investment in the station, which resulted in the recent relaunch.

The new YO1 Radio “Live Lounge”, as it came to be, will be used to broadcast live programs as an alternative to the station’s main studios on Clifton Moor.

It will also be used as a more convenient place to conduct celebrity interviews, meet listeners and local representatives of civil society and business – and even has two large screens to promote both the radio station and the businesses. local.

An official opening by the Lord Mayor of York is planned.

“Having an independent studio in the heart of downtown would normally be prohibitively expensive – but partnering with The York Roast Co, along with our new display screens, will allow us to monetize the studio and bring additional interest. . to that part of the center, ”Wayne added.

YO1 Radio broadcasts in York on 102.8FM. It is available on Digital Radio throughout North Yorkshire.

Chris Boden

Observations on the media beat:

Chris Boden will not return as a studio host for Chicago Blackhawks Nexstar Media Group news / talk hockey shows WGN 720-AM. “After four years, my time with the Blackhawks ends today, informed at the end of the season that the pre / post-game host position is being eliminated due to financial losses related to COVID,” said Boden on social media Wednesday. (Here is the link.) “As this chapter concludes, this lifelong Chicagoan is looking forward to and looking forward to the next step. The veteran Chicago sports presenter and former host of Comcast SportsNet Chicago grew up in the southern suburbs of Burbank and graduated from Luther South High School and Columbia College.

Joe biesk

Joe Biesk, a former senior content editor at Chicago Tribune who was among the last recipients of the buyout, was hired as managing editor at Shaw Local News Network based in the northwest suburb of Crystal Lake. “Joe is an experienced editor with a deep understanding of current affairs in Illinois,” Dennis Anderson, vice president of news and content development for Shaw, said in a statement. “He led the coverage of stories and in-depth investigations. It will elevate our journalism in all of our newsrooms. Prior to joining the Tribune’s government and policy team, the graduate of the University of Northern Illinois and the University of Illinois at Springfield’s Public Affairs Reporting Program was editor of the Daily Southtown , the Joliet Herald-News, the Post-Tribune and the Lake County News-Sun. For Biesk, who started out as a reporter for the Northwest Herald, it’s sort of like a homecoming. “Shaw’s footprint represents a vast expanse of Illinois, where there are great stories to tell,” he said. “I can’t wait to get to work.

Chris Jones

A gauge of how much the Chicago Tribune has contracted since the buyout bloodbath can be seen in the size of its editorial board. Twenty-five years ago 10 people reported to the editor of the editorial page Don Wycliff. Before redemptions under publisher Kristen mcqueary there were six council members. This week, the editor of the inbound editorial page Chris Jones inherits a two-member board – Clarence page and Alex Rodriguez. By Ridder, Managing Director of the Chicago Tribune Media Group, Recount la Tribune, there are “no plans to expand the editorial board at this time.” The Sun-Times editorial board now outnumbers the Tribune, with five members reporting to the editor Tom McNamee.

Phil Ponce

Family, friends and colleagues munched on tacos, Mexican rice, beans and churros in the parking lot of WTTW-Channel 11 Wednesday as they greeted Phil Ponce on her long term as host of “Chicago Tonight”. Ponce, 71, who first joined Window to the World Communications station in 1992, ended his regular appearances on the show this week and moved on to special assignments, most notably as a guest in as a guest on “Chicago Tonight: Latino Voices,” the Saturday night talk show. Ponce posted: “Thanks to WTTW and my colleagues for a nice shipment to the land of semi-retirement!”

She will be an important addition to special projects and community reporting at ABC 7. ”Barnes, a graduate of the University of Mississippi-Oxford, is studying for a Masters in Industrial / Organizational Psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.

WFMT

The opening concert of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Highland Park Ravinia feast will be broadcast live on Classic Window to the World Communications WFMT 98.7-FM, from 7:45 p.m. on July 9. The performance, directed by the conductor Sailor Alsop, will mark the first major post-pandemic classical music event in front of a full audience in the Chicago area, according to WFMT. “We are delighted to celebrate this happy reopening event with Ravinia, the CSO and all of our WFMT listeners,” said the General Manager Georges Preston said in a statement. “This is a defining moment for all music lovers.”

They show an outdoor area for eating and drinking with the interior of the lodge turned into a cafe. The modern extension at the rear of the building was completely demolished and replaced with a wooden slatted facade structure to house the radio studio.

The designs are part of the redevelopment plan for the park pavilion at the entrance to Kimberley Park in Falmouth, which has been empty for many years and housed the park ranger who looked after the site. The new design will transform the area into a community space that everyone can enjoy.

Chris, 54, trashes the place with a blazing guitar: “He only does two shows a week – and he gets the right cookies.”

Meanwhile, Graham, 57, is shown sitting in the control room eating custard, telling viewers, “This is the third time this week.”

Chris suggested his former Radio 2 co-star join the booming music station in September when he visited the studios in London.

And upon opening the ad, the former TFI Friday man said, “I said you should come here, you would love that.”

Richfield Mayor Maria Regan Gonzalez (left) chats with Maya Santamaria (right), President and CEO of Santamaria Broadcasting, ahead of the inauguration held last fall at the new Richfield location by KMNV La Raza Radio Studios.




Studio’s home in Minneapolis was destroyed by fire during social unrest last May

The social unrest that emanated from south Minneapolis in May 2020 was filled with anger, fury and outrage.

But when the building owned by Maya Santamaria, CEO of Santamaria Broadcasting, was destroyed by fire, her feelings were mixed and hard to describe.

“It was a malicious attack that hurt and we felt violated – we lost everything,” Santamaria said of the structure she lost at 2709 E. Lake St., Minneapolis.

In addition to losing the KMNV La Raza radio studios, Santamaria lost several other businesses housed there. The radio station, however, would recover.

One hundred days after the fire, La Raza Studios is reborn in Richfield, at 7645 Lyndale Ave. S.

The reopening brought comfort that was lacking three months earlier, when Santamaria was still examining the wreckage. She said she understood the plight of people of color, adding that she had come to understand that it was not the Black Lives Matter protesters who caused the damage.

“I was upset because… it wasn’t people from Black Lives Matters who set the building on fire. It was other parts of the community. There had been people in the community who had spotted those who were lighting the fire and they were not people from our community, ”she said.

Before the relocation options materialized, the outlook was bleak. The building had disappeared and the businesses destroyed.

The only Spanish-speaking station in Hennepin County had been at this Minneapolis location since 2013, and Santamaria had owned the building since 2012. The other construction companies, which she said did not survive, had been on site since 2003. .

“Of course, the first thing you think of is, ‘My business is destroyed. What should I do from here? What are the next steps ? How do you react ?’ “, did she say.

She continued, “I had quite a history in this building. It wasn’t just the radio station, but the station was a very dramatic thing to lose, especially since we hadn’t put everything in the cloud, a project that had been put on hold too many times.

In the process of changing IT staff, Santamaria said that because no content in the station’s catalog had been backed up offsite, there was nothing left after the fire.

“We literally had to start the station from scratch. We didn’t have a single song in our catalog. We didn’t even have our music program. We had nothing, ”Santamaria said.

The first step in getting the station back on the air involved finding a facility from which they could broadcast.

Less than a week after the fire, KFAI offered them a space. Contacts across the city of Minneapolis helped, and because the two stations shared the same engineer, Dan Zimmerman, the technical side of the equation turned out well.

“He built the studio and knew how to get us going,” Santamaria said.

This KFAI space was to be temporary while Santamaria searched for a new location – research that led her to Richfield.

“It was basically an uptime issue,” Santamaria said. “Of all the spaces we looked at, Richfield was more to our liking. And other considerations such as budget, availability, size, and conditions all played a role.

Santamaria said it took more than $ 150,000 to get back on the air, and although the city did not offer financial incentives for the company, the station staff felt very welcome in his new home.

A ribbon cutting at the new Richfield facility most fittingly took place on Mexican Independence Day and brought together local and state officials including Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, Mayor of Richfield Maria Regan Gonzalez, Senator Patricia Torres-Ray and the Mexican Consul. Gerardo Guerrero.

That September day, Santamaria’s remarks defined his gratitude.

“We have been through a lot in the past three months,” she said at the ceremony. “First the pandemic and then the social unrest in May hurt La Raza enormously, but we are happy to move to our new facilities and continue to serve the Twin Cities and our great state of Minnesota as a Latin leader in news, information and entertainment. “

With Richfield’s large Latino population and a Latina mayor, Santamaria said the relocation decision was a good one.

“We really love our location and how welcoming Richfield is to Latinos. The feeling in the city is really great, ”Santamaria told Sun Current recently.

“Of course, these are difficult times. But we are happy to be another Latino business that comes into the city and contributes to the community – by being a positive force not only for progress, but also by being a good neighbor and partner in the community. We are delighted to be able to do this in our new home.

It was the day before the solstice, and all over the house … there was a lot of commotion. It was Sunday night and everyone was home.

Listen everyone, it may have been a long, weird journey this year, but we won’t let anything, not even a pandemic, rob us of our zest for life.

Join Iowa Public Radio Studio One and xBk for a vacation adventure starring an evil villain who stole live vacation entertainment and a cast of characters bringing back harmony.

Listen to “The Holiday Special” with new music from Ducharme-Jones, Elizabeth moen, The finesse, Surf zombies, Lily De Taeye and more on Studio One Tracks at 7 p.m. on December 20 and 25. Post it on iowapublicradio.org.

About the show

We unfortunately can’t get together in person this year for our annual Studio One Underground holiday concert, but we couldn’t let the year go by without doing something for Christmas.

“The Holiday Special” is a multimedia collaboration between more than 40 musicians and creators from Iowa written by Madison Ray of The Finesse, Charlie Reese and Megan Helmers.

Several of the new songs on the show come with music videos that you can find on Iowa Public Radio YouTube channel. The videos were shot at xBk in Des Moines and ReUnion Brewery in Iowa City.

“We all need this,” Ray says of the production. “After a year full of tragedies and scandals, we look to our community for hope and healing. Getting together may seem different from before, but we are still on both sides of the curtain.”

Among the songs included is a new original song by Ducharme-Jones by Des Moines. “On The Darkest Nights” is part of their next album, which will be released in January 2021.

The song was written at the start of the pandemic and was inspired by the hope that something as serious as an international crisis would bring the county and the world closer together. It was co-written by Anne and David Ducharme-Jones, with performances by David and Anne (guitar and vocals), Scot Sutherland (bass guitar), Jim Stevens (drums and percussion) and Al Kabela (steel pedal).

If you are a fan of Elizabeth Moen, know that she rewrote the lyrics to her single “Red” about Santa Claus, and this song is also part of this special radio show, with an accompanying music video with dancing. aerial by Iowa City’s Mimi Ke.

#SaveOurStages

Iowa Public Radio is teaming up with xBk to present our Studio One Underground series, which has been on hiatus since February.

Tobi Parks, co-owner of the venue, has worked in multiple ways to keep her venue and others active throughout this year as an active organizer of the National Independent Venue Association and the #SaveOurStages movement.

Venues may be closed due to the pandemic, but that doesn’t mean the stages need to go dark.

“Our team at xBk is thrilled to partner with IPR’s Studio One on this program. It was wonderful to be able to creatively collaborate on a production that showcases the musical family and public radio in Iowa,” she declared. “So much has been lost to the pandemic this year, but we can continue to create and innovate to provide entertainment to the public in Iowa. Just because our doors are closed doesn’t mean we have to stop being creative!

One last thought

There is so much thought in this production. Working on it made me smile a lot, something that I needed, maybe like you too, this year. It is only through collaboration and the creative community that this has been made possible. Hope you will connect.

Renovations to the CBC building in Prince Edward Island are still in progress and the most recent part of the project is an accessible and relocated radio studio.

Now located at the entrance to the Charlottetown building, the new English radio studio will be the new home of Island morning and Main Street.

Renovation plans have been made public for the location at 430 University Ave. in 2018, but the timeline was delayed to secure a successful bidder, and then again during COVID-19.

The CBC PEI building had not been renovated since 1978. Here is an overview of the new studio.

Compact solution for outdoor broadcasts makes its way into Studio Brussel and Radio 2 broadcasts

BRUSSELS – Public broadcaster VRT Labo Radio now uses its first “Light Remote Radio Studio” for the broadcasts of Studio Brussel and Radio 2.

Studio Brussel presenter Stijn Vlaeminck (center) controls the main VRT studio from his living room, with Studio Brussel engineer Wim Reyniers (left) and Labo Radio engineer Geert Cantens (right).

The broadcaster first tested the new mobile studio with MNM presenter Peter Van de Veire, when he hosted New York’s “Ochtendshow” (“Morning Show”). He then made a second test for the program “Bij Vlaeminck” (“Chez Vlaeminck”) Studio Brussel, where DJ Stijn Vlaeminck produced the show from his living room.

Labo Radio is the VRT radio taskforce for all station hardware and software systems used for radio production. In close collaboration with DJs, journalists and music programmers, Labo Radio is constantly developing solutions to help radio staff produce creative content.

The Light Remote Radio Studio uses Peplink Pepwave MAX HD4.

The Labo Radio team is also involved in the design and implementation of the next generation of VRT radio studios for the broadcaster’s future headquarters, which should be ready in 2021. By means of “proof of concepts”, Labo Radio, together with -air, aims to make the future radio studio more user-friendly and flexible through the use of new technologies.

“The main idea behind the Light Remote Radio Studio concept is that for outdoor broadcasts, we only take the ‘remote’ on site,” said Tom Hantson, VRT radio system expert and driving force behind the concept. “Audio sources such as phone, music, jingles or commercials stay in the main VRT broadcast center, the presenter’s microphone signal and audio source control are in place. “

The new concept consists of standard broadcast equipment such as a DHD 52 / MX console, a laptop computer controlling a Dalet Plus broadcast system, a Bionics Bionic Studio Broadcast telephone system, four Shure Beta 87 microphones or four Sennheiser HME headphones.

“VRT engineers have developed this technology remotely,” said Christophe Delplace, VRT radio support manager.

Tom Hantson (center) and Pieter De Coster (right) explain the operation of the Light Remote Radio to VRT CTO Stijn Lehaen (left).

“The DHD already had a ‘control link’ to control multiple cores with a single console, or to distribute the faders on a console to one or more remote users. The New York experience allowed us to test this long distance, and it proved to be successful, ”added Hantson.

The Light Remote Radio Studio uses a dedicated IP VPN tunnel using the Peplink Pepwave MAX HD4 router. “The big challenge was the delay and jitter when using the IP connection,” said Pieter De Coster, VRT Radio System Engineer.

“Too much delay would have been disastrous for the result on the air. We had good results with a buffer in the VPN tunnel, but it had to be doable for the presenter. In the case of New York, Van de Veire is an experienced DJ and has reported positive results with the solution.

The current final version of the Light Remote Radio Studio includes a feature that allows the presenter to fine-tune the delay from the outdoor broadcast location, synchronizing the output signal from the antenna with the DJ’s headphones. “It all comes down to balancing usability with the added possibilities this technology offers,” Delplace said.

“In the event of a problem such as loss of signal, the engineer at the VRT broadcast center receives an acoustic warning signal and can take control,” added Hantson and De Coster.

[Want more information like this? Subscribe to our newsletter and get it delivered right to your inbox.]

With a second Light Remote Radio Studio in production, outdoor broadcasts require less staff and logistics. Does this mean the end of OB vans for the broadcaster?

“We are facing an increasing demand for on-premise broadcasts,” said Delplace. “Previously, we had to drive a OB van or truck with 10 flight cases to the site, and two engineers for 12 hours for standard production. The Light Remote Radio Studio comes in two compact flight cases with an engineer, reducing the amount of resources and assistance required to around 60%. This allows us to meet growing demand without increasing the workforce.

In September, VRT Radio 2 began using the Light Remote Radio Studio for its Saturday morning show “Start je Dag”, hosted by Kim Debrie. VRT’s Studio Brussel is also implementing the solution on Fridays for an eight-hour radio program from SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) throughout Flanders, offering “music at work”.

MARC’S CHOICES

1. Car seat headrest – Twin Fantasy (face to face)

Will Toledo started Car Seat Headrest as a solo project, posting his music to Bandcamp at the start. Now, with growing critical success and a recording deal with Matador, Toledo has remade his 2011 lo-fi album titled Mirror To Mirror. The hi-fi version of those same songs is called Face To Face, and the two albums together are dubbed Twin Fantasy. The music is epic and ambitious, with lyrical themes of identity and gender in the context of a special relationship.

SONG: “Body”

2. Tune-Yards – I can feel you stepping into my privacy
This is another group that started out as an artist’s solo project, in this case Merrill Garbus. Tune-Yards is about percussion and rhythms used in the service of Garbus’s observations of herself and her world. She even addresses white privilege and cultural appropriation (maybe hers) on the album.

SONG: “Heart attack”

3. Superorganism – Superorganism

Superorganism consists of five musicians from five different countries who have met and interacted online, eventually writing and recording music together. The main voice of the group is the teenager of Japanese descent Orono Noguchi. Their debut album is fun and inspiring, and could perhaps be called psychedelic children’s music.
SONG: “Something for your mind”

4. King Tuff– The other

Once again, an artist and a band, King Tuff specializes in a blend of neo-psychedelic west coast garage rock that really came of age on The Other. Philosophical ruminations on the state of affairs of King Tuff on multiple instruments, aided here and there by fellow West Coasters Ty Segall, Jenny Lewis, Mikal Cronin and others.

SONG: “Psycho Star”


5. Mitski – Be the cowboy

Mitski Miyawaki’s 2018 album received wide acclaim, especially in the indie rock world. The Japanese-born multi-instrumentalist writes confident and succinct songs. Mitski tells us how she feels with expertly arranged and richly produced music.

SONG: “The heart of the washing machine”

TONY’S CHOICES

1. Neko case – Hell

Neko Case has had a long career as an American-influenced singer-songwriter and as a member of The New Pornographers, one of the greatest pop / rock groups of all time. She has collaborated with friends, former bandmates and others on Hell-On, a record that demands your full attention. This album feels personal but not exactly autobiographical, explores a variety of sounds, and is anchored by Case’s legendary powerful voice.

SONG: “Last Lion of Albion”

2. Bettye LaVette – Things have changed

A collection of Bob Dylan covers of one of the best blues / soul / R & B singers in the world. The songs on this album were personally chosen by Ms. LaVette and range from lesser-known songs in Dylan’s catalog to some of her “greatest hits.” LaVette and her band force us to think of these songs in a whole new way.

SONG: “Times are changing”

3. Courtney Barnett, tell me how you really feel
Having officially achieved “full rock star” status, Courtney Barnett’s third album in three years is a bit darker and a bit more low-key than her 2015 LP or last year’s collaboration with Kurt Vile, but the great turns of phrase and the exuberant guitar playing are still there. Certainly a record which rewards repeated listening.

SONG: “The city looks pretty”

4. Arctic monkeys – Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino

Arctic Monkeys are well known for their strong electric guitars and punk / garage sounds, so fans of the band expected more of the same when they announced the release of their sixth album in 2018. Instead, the group released one of the most polarizing records of the year: a piano-focused concept album on a luxury resort on the moon. The result is fascinating and recommended both for dedicated Arctic Monkeys fans and for anyone willing to try their luck on something a little different.

SONG: “Four out of five”

5. Shannon and the clams – Onion
Oakland, Calif. Based band Shannon & The Clams combine a wide variety of influences to create their sound: classic R&B, surfing, ’60s girl groups,’ 80s punk and more. Their latest record is one of the best pure rock n ‘roll releases in years, and it’s a pleasure to listen to from start to finish.

SONG: “The Boy”

BOB’S CHOICES

1. Kevin Burt – Heartland & Soul

The greatest blues story in Iowa is that of Kevin Burt. Burt won the International Blues Challenge, recorded with Kid Anderson and Jim Pugh and released his internationally distributed debut album, which is in the top 10 of every blues chart I’ve seen during his premieres. release weeks. Heartland & Soul is the name of the CD. I hope Santa Claus brings you a copy this year. I am SO proud of Kevin. Great talent, hard work, perseverance, humble / grateful attitude.

SONG: “True love”

2. Curtis Salgado and Alan Hager – Coarse cut

A few releases from the start of the year are on the “must have” list. Acoustic Album of the Year is the duo of guitarist Alan Hager and multi-winner of the Blues Music Award, soul / harmonica singer Curtis Salgado. The record is Rough Cut. Some classic songs from Big Bill Broonzy, Muddy Waters and Sonnyboy Williamson, but mostly new songs written by Salgado / Hager including this one.

SONG: “So close to nowhere”

3. Nick Moss Band with Dennis Gruenling – The high cost of a cheap life

The other release earlier this year on the “must have” list, especially if you’re like me – lover of the classic 50’s and 60’s Chicago sound / guitar and harp. This CD marks the return to the blues of Chicago guitarist Nick Moss (who has turned in a rock and soul tangent in recent years) coupled with harpist Dennis Gruenling.

SONG: “The high cost of a cheap life”

4. Colin James – Miles to go

I am embarrassed that I have only really “discovered” Canadian bluesman Colin James in the past few years, despite the fact that he has won virtually ALL major Canadian blues awards. Excellent guitar playing and strong vocal phrasing in its traditional blues style.

SONG: “I will stay”

5. Danielle Nicole – Do not Cry

Danielle Nicole had a new release in 2018. She seems to top all blues lists in what’s called the Contemporary Blues category these days. I’ve watched Danielle’s career evolve since the 90s when she sang a few songs with her mom & dad’s band (Little Eva & The Works) at a Kansas City bar that I played every 6-8 weeks. Followed by a band named The Nortons then acclaimed internationally with his brothers in Trampled Under Foot. Not only is she a great singer and a fascinating figure on stage, but she’s also a groove monster on bass.

SONG: “Hot Spell”

6. Joyann Parker – Hard to love

Minnesotan Joyann Parker is a totally self-produced artist who represented Minnesota at the International Blues Challenge. She co-writes her own songs and also does a tribute to the Patsy Cline show when she’s not doing the blues!

SONG: “Envy”

7. Ivy Ford – Time to shine

Ivy Ford has been on the Chicago scene for a few years. Ford writes all of his own songs, plays all guitar parts on his Time To Shine CD, and is scheduled to be at the Central Iowa Blues Society Winter Blues Fest in Des Moines on February 2.

SONG: “Girls’ night”

8. Heather Newman – Burn me alive

Heather Newman’s Burn Me Alive CD is her first, although she’s been playing for over a decade, and it earned her a Blues Blast Award for Best New Artist. She also writes her own songs and is the bassist for her band. Heather is also set to appear at CIBS Blues Fest on February 2.

SONG: “Share your love”

9. The great harp George – Cool in upscale neighborhoods

OK, so favorite blues release. I’m an aspiring harmonica player, so is it any wonder my favorite is a harmonica player? Standard 10-hole harp or chromatic, acoustic or electric harmonica, insightful and humorous lyrical content by a former criminal defense attorney, award-winning law professor at UC Hastings College of the Law and expert commentator on law and politics at Middle East . George Bisharat is his name, he is known as Big Harp George.

SONG: “Alternative Facts”

Bob’s Backtrack Pick: The Beatles – 50th Anniversery remix / remaster, The Beatles

As for Backtracks (new music releases that are AT LEAST 25 years old), there was a couple that are definitely “must-see”, including the latest in the Bob Dylan Bootleg series – More Blood On The Tracks and the 50th Anniversary Remix / Remastered disc and demo of the Beatles white album. This is one of the demos that I like better than the release of the original album.
SONG: “Honey Pie – Esher Demo”

Bob’s Holiday Pick: JD McPherson – Socks

There were a lot of great holiday 2018 records. Happy Xmas by Eric Clapton and Christmas Everywhere by Rodney Crowell are on the best holiday list, but the best of this year’s holiday releases is the brand new disc of original songs from rockabilly / Americana artist JD McPherson.

SONG: “Socks”
