I didn't hear any ID yet, but assume this is what I am hearing.
0036 - "What Christmas Means To Me" by Paul Young.  S5 and mostly poor to occasionally fair copy.
0045 - "Let It Snow", mostly fair copy now except some pescs on LSB
0048 - ID and email info then into "Sleigh Ride"
0123 - still in there at S3, poor copy but Bruce Springsteen peaking thru with "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"
Off or faded when I checked back at 0131.
