Milanesi’s Christmas Playlist Volume 1

Back in 1999, Mike Milanesi, a co-worker and friend put together four discs of Christmas music. In my family, it didn’t take long for these to become our defacto favorite discs to listen to between Thanksgiving and the New Year’s Day. The four discs were separated into four distinct groups Religious, Secular, Instrumental and Bing’s Zing (Crosby, of course).

As a way of saying thanks to Mike and share the love this Christmas, I will post each of these playlists over the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have.
