A Very Jolly Synthesized Christmas

switched-on-santaVia WNYC, comes A Very Jolly Synthesized Christmas:

David Garland presents vintage recordings of holiday favorites performed on Moog, Buchla, and other analog synthesizers.

You might think this sonic tinsel would seem synthetic, but it’s full of genuine joy and warmth. Hear highlights from albums released in the late ’60s and early ’70s, including Douglas Leedy’s “A Very Merry Electric Christmas to You,” The Moog Machine’s “Christmas Becomes Electric,” and Sy Mann’s “Switched on Santa.”

And as a bonus, a Christmas visit with The Beatles!
