Twas the Nightside before Christmas

and down at the station

carols were playing

with a holiday vibration!

Jazz was the music with a taste of Yule

and Christmas rhymes for holiday times

were in general, the rule.

The listener members were diggin’ the sounds

while the big man in red was making the rounds.

On Bird, on Dizzy, on Miles, on Trane

On Mingus, on Sonny, on Monk and ‘Round Midnight again.

This Christmas Eve night the show starts at nine

So, drink up an egg nog or even some wine.

Join Andy O’ in a holiday tradition

The Nightside Before Christmas 2023 edition.

We’ll have holiday tales

Like A Child’s Christmas in Wales

And poems of good cheer

So, make yourself Jolly with some winter brewed beer

I heard Santa say as he listened that night

Have a KUVO Cool Yule it’s outta sight!

It’s The Nightside Before Christmas with Andy O’ on Sunday, December 24, from 9 to midnight on KUVO JAZZ!
