AKA“Don’t Touch that Dial” Mix
The National Day of Listening has now gone past.
But we’re just getting started with tunes to broadcast.
There’s something for everyone, simply click our mix and see.
You won’t be disappointed. And the best thing: it’s free.
Some songs are grassy and some songs are sassy.
A few we’ll call jazzy while others are classy.
There are songs for the hip.
And songs for the flip. Even songs that will help you give winter the slip.
You can listen for pleasure. You can listen for fun.
You can listen with family while errands are run.
The point is to listen the whole year through.
A good thing to practice. For me and for you.
From our “house” to your house,
we wish you our best.
And thank you for being our
Most Honored Guests.

Thanks, Liz. We enjoy compiling it each year. Thank you for your support of Arlington Public Library and all the best to you and yours.
Fun list. Especially since it doesn’t include Granma Got Run Over By a Reindeer and that Paul McCartney song that never ends.

My family doesn’t have Spotify but we use the Hoopla service and there’s a lot of good season music.
