Steve & Cat Pick Team Up for Christmas Extravaganza on 12/25/09 Sound Salvation
Waking up and opening presents just received its soundtrack for this Christmas morning. For Sound Salvation this Friday from 7 – 10 a.m. CT, I’ll be teaming up with Cat Pick, host of Emotional Rescue (88.1′s Monday drive time show). Together, we’ll be delving into our extensive selection of holiday favorites, obscurities, novelties and sublimities for three hours of music meant to add yuletide spirit and cheer to your Christmas morning.
We’ve hosted separate radio shows on KDHX off and on for 21 years, but, outside of the occasional membership drive appearances wherein Cat might support me, or I’d support Cat, we’ve never teamed together to produce a joint effort of musical entertainment over the airwaves. Faced with the thought that it would be a lot more fun to be together than apart on Christmas morning, we both decided to share our love of holiday music with the KDHX audience.
This will not be a formulaic, rote selection of familiar chestnuts and uninteresting contemporary rock or pop. Instead, Cat and I will draw from 75 years of holiday music, where Doris Day, the Pogues, the Temptations, Aimee Mann, the Flaming Lips, Louis Armstrong, King Diamond, Ella Fitzgerald, Rosanne Cash, the Jackson Five, Buck Owens, Rough Shop, Gentleman Auction House, and, of course, Darlene Love are typical artists who may appear. There’s a wealth of incredible music which only gets played at this time of year, and we promise that only the best will be chosen to make your spirits bright this December 25. Tune in to 88.1 at 7 a.m. CT on Christmas morning or stream the show live at KDHX.org.
