Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

Check The Cool Wax Christmas Mix 2013

Merry Christmas everyone! How is your Christmas season going? Great I hope. I feel like I really have the spirit this year. Some years Christmas comes and goes so fast that you really don't get to fully submerge yourself into this wonderful time of year.

Here is my meager gift to you. It's not much. 60 minutes (give or take a few seconds) of peppy Christmas music that I hope will brighten up your spirits if only for a short time. Think of it as an hour of Check The Cool Wax radio. It has had my kids and I dancing around the living room for a few weeks now. I tried to keep this as upbeat as possible. The tempo drops a little in the middle but picks right back up at the end. It will also be good practice for your holiday party because you can practice all your dance moves - polka, pogo, western swing, robot or even just the cool head bob...

I'm not sure how long this will be up. Soundcloud could take this down at anytime. If anyone is interested, I can make this a mix on Spotify too. I really had fun making this. Please send me a note or leave a message if you enjoyed it. I would love to know if anyone is still visiting the site.

Please support these great artists. My only intent here is to spread a little good cheer and introduce other music lovers to some songs they may have forgotten or never heard before. Well, except for Elvis I guess… But I couldn't make a Christmas mix without the King of Rock n Roll right?? It's just impossible to hear good music on the radio or in stores anymore.

Thanks for this. Really enjoyed your mix this year! Great song selection and clips. I just finished mine as well, you may enjoy it as we seem to have similar taste and style.
