S6 and fair audio @ 0012.
Heavy metal versions of classic Christmas songs.
I believe its a version of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" @ 0016
"I'll Be Home for Christmas" by Twisted Sister @ 0020
"Dreaming of a White Christmas" @ 0023

Still S6 and fair copy @ 0105 with "Little Drummer Boy"
Off @ 0108
Thanks for the show.
