It's The X-Mas Show with your host DJ Bylamplight

Ahhh, it's that time of year again, a time for giving. But for all you Liquid Dilemma readers 'tis the time to receive. Following a long running holiday tradition, Liquid Dilemma DJs always brings you some X-Mas goodies and this year is no different. Well, there's one difference. Chicago's grass roots community radio upstart, CHIRP Radio, has officially been on the air for one full year! To celebrate this feat of love, commitment and elbow grease, we offer you an archive of a very special Christmas show that aired a couple days ago on CHIRP with your host DJ Bylamplight. Happy holidays everyone. May your treats be spiked with rum, your stockings filled with treats, and--as Jacob Miller and Ray I might say--may your Christmas be filled with plumes of Ismas.

It's The X-Mas Show, live on CHIRP Radio (aired Dec 20, 2010):
