I can't believe I skipped the holiday message! I guess you could consider the last post as a nice little shout-out for a cool last-minute gift but I will admit that I dropped the ball on the whole season. Don't feel left out. As my wife let me know, I dropped the ball on Christmas for my family as well. Hey, I was traveling and busy and.......stuff. Lottery tickets are a totally legit gift! I gave them the opportunity to win $20,000! Too bad I gave my Chicago relatives Wisconsin Lotto scratch-offs. Whoops. Anyway, I'm going to atone for my holiday grinchliness and drop a nice little gift on you that you'll use the whole year through. 'Round here we have a thing for ambient beats while putting our bicycle thing down. But how to keep the beat while keeping the holiday spirit alive? That's where Soma FM's "Christmas Lounge" comes in. For those not in the know, Soma FM is free, listener-supported, internet radio. Other favorites at Trek are the laid-back "Groove Salad" and the very undercover "Secret Agent" stations. While I highly recomend the Christmas Lounge for the season, you'll have to check out the other stations as the year progresses. Oh, and their listener supported. So, if you dig what they do, cough up a little dough for them. They don't beg every 5 seconds like NPR and $50 gets you a t-shirt!
There, consider the holiday atoned for! I just gave you music for the whole year!
