Xmas Enduction Hour playlist

DJ’d what will hopefully be a first-annual preview of the 25-Hour Holiday Radio Show last night from 10 pm ET – 2 am ET at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia. Was a good mix of new recordings and old favorites. Thanks to all the friends and listeners that came out. Here’s my playlist, with some accompanying notes. Had planned to open with “Jon Solomon’s Christmas Eve Marathon” by Noah Vail and “Santa Claus” by The Sonics, but switched things up at the very last minute so I could get a better feel of the sound system and DJ booth. Shall save both for the start of this year’s marathon instead! – Jon
