Ah, the sweet scourge of "Christmas music." As with gruesome highway mayhem, you just can't avert your ears! Whether it's so bad it's good, or just plain so good, sonic seasonal fare is here to stay, so we might as well wallow in it.
Continuing my crusade to lighten the end-times pall occluding the blogosphere, I use this space to remind sonic explorers to check the archives at your favorite sites, for there's golden sounds in the pages. Take for example the lead off item in today's Motherlode.
Though it still makes me smirk two decades later, maybe I should adopt Gateway to a Great Getaway as a slogan for Mining the Audio Motherlode. What a better way to describe the worldly adventures teed up for you here on a weekly basis.
In recent years, my search for sounds to share on the radio has led to the ever-widening online universe of music-sharing blogs. Mining the Audio Motherlode is a weekly survey of my favorite such discoveries.
