The glorious voices of San Francisco-based Chanticleer offers music that spans the globe and the centuries – from England in the 1300s to new arrangements of classic and contemporary carols. Brian Newhouse is your host. Friday, December 21 at 9pm. (See all of our holiday specials here.)
This week, host David Latulippe is joined by writer and longtime contributor to “Open Air,” Peter Robinson, for a special holiday-themed show that focuses on well- and lesser-known holiday music - including Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus" sung by Roches (sisters Maggie, Suzy, & Terry) and lesbians (Venus Envy, with some...interesting...word changes). Plus, Peter's observations on Charles Dickens, the San Francisco Girls' Chorus singing "Silent Night" and some advice for traveling near and far. Originally broadcast on Thursday, 12/20/12 at 1pm.
