With the help of a couple of Christmas music aficionados, CBC Radio’s Mainstreet has compiled a list of the best Christmas music — and they’re inviting you to check it twice.
Singer-songwriter Meaghan Smith and Chronicle Herald arts reporter Stephen Cooke dropped by the show this week to talk about what’s new on the Christmas playlist — and to talk about songs and albums that are rightly Christmas classics.
Meaghan has had a hand in two such albums — A New Kind of Light and It Snowed.
Stephen owns several crates of seasonal vinyls, singles and CDs.
Here’s a list of the songs and records they recommend this holiday season, in no particular order:
