Christmas cheer in small doses of course.  A little goes a long way.  Weaved within the usual Oracle brand of Psychedelic and Folk was some spectacular Holiday tunes.  A little present from me to you.  Thanks for listening!  Have a blessed Christmas however you choose to celebrate.  Take time for yourself to reflect on the good things you have.  Good music for one.  If you missed the show or want a re-play, download it here:
