WOW!!!! I have been listed in iTunes' radio tuner! I'm flattered, and so excited, as this will really help spread a cappella to a lot of folks that might not know about this station otherwise. (If you don't know about it: iTunes is Apple's free MP3 player/radio tuner, for Windows and Mac. In the first four days of the release of the Windows version, over a million people download the software... so there's tons of new potential listeners who now have a listing for "A Cappella Holiday" in their radio listings... yay!)
Some of the new tracks that have recently been added:
Off Acoustix's Cool Yule: Auld Lang Syne, Oh Little Town of Bethelehem, Silver Bells, The First Noel, and the classic "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch"
From The Gashouse Gang's Some Children See Him: the clasics "Do You Hear What I Hear," "Little Drummer Boy" and "Merry Christmas, Darling"
Moosebutter sent me a special Christmas EP with cool new unreleased tracks— listen for "Rudolph" and "Feliz Navidad" (mixed with "I Just Called to Say I Love You!")
And many more...

I've set up a "virtual tip jar" to help cover the rising costs of the stations. It's 100% totally and completely optional: no obligation or need; the stations are free and they'll remain that way. However, if you want to donate, now you can.
In other news, I'm in NYC right now and I'm hoping to go see this; thought I'd share it in case you're here too:
Holiday Chorus Tree: The Holiday Chorus Tree, a beloved downtown New York tradition, stands 50 feet tall and is beautifully decorated. This year, the world renowned Big Apple Chorus, New York City's premier acappella singing group will perform your favorite holiday tunes every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with six performances throughout the weekend. Info: South Street Sea Port; 19 Fulton St; Fri: 6pm & 7pm, Sat & Su: 3pm & 4pm; FREE;
And finally, almost THIRTY new tracks have been added to the holiday station; details will appear here throughtout this week!
