For weeks now we've been working on the next episode of the Merry Podcast.

Quite honestly, it has made my Christmas of 2013 to do this.

We get lots of submissions year round from artists looking to get airplay on Merry Christmas Radio and Kringle Radio. Some of it is great, some not so great.

As we've looked to feature new artists and songs this year we have gathered more new music than we ever have before. I don't know why that is but there is just a bumper crop this year.

In fact, there's more music than we can fit in on just one podcast.

For a couple of weeks I've been whittling it down, trying to find the right mix to feature.

Quite by accident I noticed something today -- we have contributing artists from the USA, Canada, the UK, Austria, Japan and we even have a song highlighting Christmas of the American southwest.

In other words, these are diverse contributions and I think it represents better than ever the universality of Christmas and just how broad our reach has become in recent years.

That's thrilling to me.

But it gets even better than that.

I've tried to have contact with each artist to exchange some information about the back story on each of these songs. With few exceptions they are delighted, if not anxious, to tell their Christmas story. And these are GREAT stories.

The result is a deeply moving, warm and Christmasy episode that has been a delight for me personally to put together.

We'll broadcast it on Kringle Radio at 9am on Monday and we'll make it available here shortly before then for download.

Don't miss it!
