Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

Christmax Wax :: The Best of Check The Cool Wax Christmas REPOST


























Thanks for the requests to repost this mix. It's fun to know people would still like to hear it. This mix was made five years ago using (mostly) songs that were not yet available on CD. Listening to it again I'm pretty proud of it. So much time went into ripping all of those records in. Life is just too busy these days to keep that up... The songs take me back to listening to Christmas music on the family record player and going to the Christmas party at the town library. They remind me of Christmas shopping at stores that are no longer around and Christmas decorations that used to adorn every store and street corner... Remember how decked out stores would get back then? I miss that. Maybe this mix will help jog a few memories for you too. It's dusty mix of Christmas Wax from the island of misfit songs. I hope to get to another vinyl Christmas mix someday, but for now, this will have to do.


Merry Christmas everybody!
