As the year comes to a close, KDHX is pleased to present some of our favorite live in-studio videos of 2011 -- and there were so many, we just couldn't narrow it to 10!
Deck the halls with boughs of great music this season. 88.1 KDHX presents KDHXmas 2011: A Holiday Sampler -- 12 festive tracks, recorded live at KDHX.
