Analog Planet host Michael Fremer compiled two 2-hour holiday music broadcasts for public radio station WFDU HD2 in Teaneck, New Jersey, and made them available over SoundCloud. I have linked both here for your enjoyment. Fremer's taste is eclectic and wide-ranging, and both of his holiday sets here have a lot of variety many here will enjoy. Keep in mind while listening that all of these tracks are sourced from vinyl.
