My late father, known around here as The Autocrat of the Dinner Table, was in the habit of making a tape of Christmas music that he would share with his family and friends. One of the ways that the world has changed since his passing is that most folks don't listen to cassettes much, or even have ways to play them any more. I took it upon myself to digitize them this fall, and with some help from my charming and handsome friend Daniel McCord, I was able to make a way to share them. I tried to reach people directly who got these tapes, but I thought I would mention it here for folks I forgot, or for folks who are interested. Mostly choral, with the odd Willie Nelson or Los Straitjackets track. If you would like the link, send an email to fesser at the gmails.
