Brainwaves – Dec. 24, 2019 – Hanukah special episode – from darkness to light

Christmas or Hanukah – they both fall in the same week this year. Which should we choose? Well, Brainwaves is broadcast out of Jerusalem, so we’re going with Hanukah. Two hours of music to highlight the festival of lights – moving from darkness to light. Music from Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Matt Pond PA, Yo La Tenga, Pink Floyd, Elvis Costello, Teenage Fanclub, Passenger, Spoon, the Smiths and much more. Light a candle, it’s Hanukah time!
