Happy Hour #125 – Christmas Island

Happy Hour #125 – Christmas Island

A break from the typical Top 40 Christmas songs you hear on every radio station in every mall and supermarket or shopping center. This is what Christmas is like in a Tropical setting, and I bet you have not heard many of these songs before, or at least not these versions!
