Here's the second and final portion of my time spent with the great Rik Emmett, going over the Christmas songs most special to him. Our first episode from last week was a massive success, earning the most downloads of any NSTS show in 2018. Hope you enjoy this one just as much.
This week Rik once again provides tremendous insight into the writing of some of our favourite holiday tunes, all while playing portions of them on guitar. He also shares some personal details about the playlists the Emmett family listen to during Christmas, and why. Rik graciously wraps up the show by playing one of my faves, a highlight I won't forget. Doing these shows with Rik was the perfect way to wrap what's been an absolutely incredible year. Thanks sincerely to each and every one of you, faithful listeners. My very best to you and your families over the holiday season. I'm outta here, programming resumes January 8, 2019 - Merry Christmas!
