The December 22 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded from home on November 4 (four segments) and 5 (two segments and pickups) with the denoise filter applied to all talk breaks. Additional pickups were recorded on November 23 and December 13, both without the denoise filter and the latter while shortening four segments. It was recommended on the 13th that I make 18-minute segments. Between this week and January 26, I’ve shortened any segments that were padded by liners or songs that don’t start with a talk-up. The first show with 18-minute segments in mind will be February 2, 2/2/22. Wait till you hear what I have in store.

The playlist for the Christmas show was created and annotated on November 3.

Like last year, the show included two songs each by David Benoit and Mannheim Steamroller, but also two versions of “Carol of the Bells” (1 1/2 last year) and “Jingle Bells.” One of those versions was Jay Rowe‘s that I referenced last year. This year, a slightly longer version was included on Jay’s new album, Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas, from Jay Rowe. The November 23 pickup came after Jay announced the album’s release on Facebook. Here’s the original single version, not the album version that aired:

I was glad to reference Roy’s poem in Game Dave‘s video posted exactly a year before the show aired:

Roy’s portion is about 8:20 in.
