Show #125 - Carols and Culture: A Dialogue about the Influence of Black Christmas Music

On our final episode of 2023 we are asking the question "Who really rules Christmas?" and the answer may surprise you.

In this episode of Queue Points, DJ Sir Daniel and Jay Ray discuss the history and relevance of Black Christmas music. They go over the Top 10 Black Christmas albums ranked by Essence magazine, debating their merits and sharing personal anecdotes about the albums. DJ Sir Daniel also highlights the new Christmas albums from Brandy and Robert Glasper, praising their ability to reinvent classics while also creating new Christmas music. Throughout their discussion, they underscore the cultural significance of Black artists in shaping the Christmas music canon, while also suggesting there are opportunities for more diverse inclusion of other holidays in music. They end the episode with a nod to a mix that DJ Sir Daniel recently dropped and a call to listeners to support artists by purchasing and streaming their music.
