Annual Indie Holiday

Next week, December 14, 2021 we will have our annual YTAA Indie Holiday show with Tom Gilliam.

We have been doing these shows for a decade or more now! We have to be honest and say that we have lost track of how many years we have been doing this special edition of YTAA.

Every year we try to celebrate the holidays in full indie music style.  We will be playing originals, classic covers, and unique holiday songs on this special show. Let’s all take a moment and reflect on the fact that this has been far more than another year that has come and gone! This revolution around the sun represents a monumental achievement. We all need to embrace joy and community wherever and however we find them! 

We all know that there is a lot of frustration, stress and challenges during the holidays with all the sense of overwhelming of planning, shopping, traveling, pandemic logistics and more this holiday season.  Well, we believe that music makes all of us feel a little better. Let us help you relax with some great indie holiday music.  If you have a suggestion for a cool holiday tune, let us know! There have been several cool original holiday songs that we can’t wait to share with you!

And as always, Dr. J can’t wait to co-host the Annual Indie Holiday Radio Show on WUDR Flyer Radio 99.5/98.1’s Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative with our good friend and frequent guest on the program, Tom Gilliam, who always brings some interesting personal choices to the playlist. In addition, the talented Mrs. Dr. J has made many welcome suggestions to this program!

This year you have two chances to hear the indie holiday festivities! The original broadcast is on Tuesday, December 14th from 3-6 PM. Listen on 99.5 FM in Dayton, Ohio, USA or stream the broadcast at wudr.udayton.edu.  And if that was not enough we upload the mix into our Mixcloud page! You can listen for the show in easily digestible one hour servings beginning the next day! We are very excited play new and classic indie holiday songs for you. Pour yourself a cup of coco, set up the yule log and put on your favorite holiday sweater.

See you there and Happy Holidays!
