Feature Album: Voices by Daryl Hall & John Oates (1980)

Whilst I program five weeks’ worth of Monday Music Club over IUP’s Christmas break (Mondays, 6-10pm), I have some feature album hours to share with you on the Sampler. Here’s a good one!



Representing two genres that rarely get played on the show: Christmas stuff, and…really old stuff, which I feel generally doesn’t fit into the flow of most Sunday Samplers. So, in this hour are 11 vintage Christmas tunes that you more than likely haven’t heard this holiday season.
