KOST's Morning Team Takes Listeners Behind the Holiday Classics

I don't listen to much morning drive-time radio these days, but I recently learned that KOST-FM here in Los Angeles pretty much plays nothing but holiday music for much of the month of December. Now, their taste in Christmas tunes isn't terribly original, but if your taste runs toward the plain vanilla kind of fare, there's plenty of Mariah Carey, Bing Crosby and Wham! The KOST morning show also runs a daily feature called "Behind the Song," which offers some interesting background info on some of the most popular holiday tunes they feature. (That's a big part of what we do here, although I don't see KOST discussing Johnny "Bowtie" Barstow.) You can check out the stories behind several of the biggies by pressing on the links below, or check out the station's website for more. (You may need to reload each of these clips after you open them initially. I have no idea why.)
