Get into the Holiday Spirit by Listening to KXCI's "Sonic Solstice" Tonight

One of my favorite holiday season traditions each year is the Sonic Solstice radio show broadcast by KXCI FM 91.3.

Now in its 11th year, the program — which airs tonight, Monday, Dec. 17, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. — combines live, in-studio performances of holiday classics and original songs as performed by an always-stellar lineup of local acts, with recorded highlights from past years' shows and amusing DJ banter filling out the time between the live stuff.

Supplying that banter this year will be hosts Cathy Rivers (The Home Stretch), Matt Milner (Locals Only), Bob Girth (The Hub), and Laura Adams (The Music Mix); and the list of scheduled live performers looks a li'l something like this:

Hip Don't Dance
Jacob Acosta (of Race You There and Roll Acosta)
Al Foul
Boreas
Gabrielle Pietrangelo (of Silver Thread Trio)
Keli Carpenter and Taylor Bungard (of The Tryst)
Carlos Arzate and the Kind Souls
Kaia Chesney
The Great Collision (Ryan Green of Ryanhood and Paul Jenkins of ...music video?)
Hans Hutchison
Golden Boots

Pretty sweet, right?

It's the sort of "event radio" that just doesn't happen very much anymore. So, for one night, turn off the TV, put down the video game controllers, and suck back some eggnog with friends and/or family with your radio tuned to 91.3 FM (or stream it at kxci.org). If you're not in the holiday spirit at the end of those four hours, well, you're on your own this year.
