Monday Breakfast Blend presents:

This morning, we’re celebrating the shortest day and the longest night with some winter music of all kinds, including traditional carols, folk and experimental music about wintry topics, blizzardy black metal, and music that just sonically evokes winter. In the first hour we had some quieter, gentler sounds, but hour two had some heavier stuff. Thanks for listening!

My background music while talking in this episode was “Ice Dance” by Danny Elfman.
