OTHER SOURCES: Iowa Public Radio's schedule of Iowa Holiday Music

Hey people!

It's Christmas Eve. I'm sick. So I'm playing a Scrooge here and you all are getting nothing! At least, this weekend!

Go hang out with family and/or friends! Sing some Christmas carols!

But if you really need something, remember I have 3 huge playlists of Christmas music by Iowans here - http://iowamusicshowcase.blogspot.com/2016/11/playlists-iowa-holiday-music.html
